20. The Book of Romans – God has a plan
But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, Why have you made me like this? Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?
Man always tries to avoid his responsibility. “If God is in control and Master over everything, then there is nothing that I need to do. He can’t find fault in me or my life. And on the Day of Judgment, I will just stand before God and say, This is how you wanted it”.
“There’s your plan God. I guess we have no responsibility”.
But Paul says, NO! God’s plan never takes away our responsibility. Paul says that it is disrespectful to even ask this kind of question. Man has no right to accuse God of anything.
