Don’t you just love the infomercials that keep getting better as they go along? I can almost guess where it’s going next. There’s the spectacular offer that does it all at an “ok” price. I sit. I watch. I deliberate. Pretty nice. Next comes, “but wait… there’s more” as the offer gets sweeter. I sit. I watch. I deliberate. Maybe. Next comes, “but that’s not all” as the offer becomes almost irresistible. This repeats a few more times until you simply can’t let the offer go because after all the “offer won’t last long.”
There is an offer that really is irresistible. It’s actually a free gift. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).”
Even more amazing is the fact that, yes, He saves us from sin. But wait… there’s more. He also provides for us; He’s our healer; and He’s our peace. But that’s not all. He’s a very present help in the time of trouble; He’s our shepherd; and He’s our righteousness. But wait… there’s more. We could go on ad infinitum with the many facets that make God who He is and such a sweet deal. We could tell of His love, grace, mercy, faithfulness, goodness, and so on.
He’s El Shaddai, the God who’s more than enough, the self-sufficient, almighty God. But that’s not all… he’s the Great I AM. “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM have sent me unto you (Ex. 3:14).” One song says, “He’s done so much for me I cannot tell it all.” In other words, “but wait there’s more” and “but that’s not all.” We say, “It is what it is.” He says, “I AM THAT I AM.” I don’t believe “it” can stand up to “I AM.”
