Quote from Gospel Deeps

 


To accomplish his saving purposes and magnify his sovereign grace, God chooses the younger brothers, the shepherd boys, the schemers, the dreamers, the ghetto dwellers and cats from the other side of the tracks, the imprisoned, the impotent, the impatient, the foreigners, the fakers, the fighters, the short-tempered, the hyper-sensitive, the deep feelers, the dum-dums, the dullards, and the dry bones. So that in all things he might be glorified in saying to Not My People, “You are so my people. Yes, even you.” Isn’t adoption astounding?

— Jared C. Wilson, Gospel Deeps (p.154)
