God’s Sovereign Freedom

“Ancient paganism thought of each god as bound to his worshipers’ by bonds of self-interest, because he depended on their service and gifts for his welfare.  Modern paganism has at the back of its mind a similar feeling that God is somehow obliged to love and help us, little though we deserve it.  This feeling is not well founded.  The God of the Bible does not depend on His human creatures for His well-being, nor, now that we have sinned, is He bound to show us favor.”      -J.I. Packer-
