His Strange Work

“I will bless you,” He said to Abraham (Gen 12:2). “God… sent Him [Jesus] to you first, to bless you,” echoed Peter (Acts 3:26).  God’s attitude to His people is positive constructive, enriching.  Judgment is His “strange work” (Isa 28:21).  His principal and characteristic work is to bless people with salvation.
