“If God’s love is as wide as the ocean, then he must care for those who seek asylum coming over the ocean. God acted in great love, mercy and grace can we say that is reflected in our nations actions in this matter, or perhaps more personally in our thinking. When Jesus calmed the storm he not only saved the disciples, he saved all the other boats as well.”
We all love a mystery, Paul here reveals the greatest mystery there is.
“This is the secret that is finally revealed to the saints: God loved them before creation. He loves them despite sin and death. He loves them not withstanding the former division of Jews and Gentiles. He loved them with the intention that they praise his glory. Man did not know this love; the powers did not. But God did. It was God’s secret because it was hidden in his heart, indentified with his own being, his whole self. Now it has been laid bare. The whole, true God is no longer hidden and unknown. His very heart is opened.” [Marcus Barth Ephesians, 127.]
