God does not Fall in Love

This approach to these matters accounts well for certain biblical truths of immense practical importance. God does not “fall in love” with the elect; he does not “fall in love” with us; he sets his affection on us. He does not predestine us out of some stern whimsy; rather, in love he predestines us to be adopted as his sons (Eph. 1:4-5). The texts themselves tie the love of God to other perfections in God [Carson, D. A., The Difficult Doctrine of the Love of God (Crossway Books, 2000), pg. 61].

One thought on “God does not Fall in Love

  1. Good Morning.An all consuming fire! A jealous God! Here are perfections of God that display His Love to the elect.Because of His Love, God will not allow us to behave in any way contrary to that Love. Thus chastisement, punishment.Fire! Jealousy! Markers of God's great Love for us. In which, by which, and through which, is God Glorified.Just my thoughts.God Bless.
