God’s freedom to save us any way he likes

It’s one thing to intend, like God, that everyone be saved. But we tend to be like Peter, in that if God chooses a way we think is beneath him, we are quick to protest. That’s too ugly, awkward, sloppy, foolish, and inefficient a way to save people, we think–and God exercises his freedom to do it his way just the same.
Our choice is to get on board with it or else hear the horrifying ‘Get behind me, Satan!’
