We could study God’s word all day everyday and there would still be more to know about Christ.
After our purpose on earth is ended, we’re going home (YIPEEE!) to heaven where we will live with Christ into eternity. I’m confident that we will continue to grow in our knowledge and experience of Christ in heaven – forever – and we will never know it all. There will still be mysteries.
I’m comforted by the fact that I don’t understand it all here on earth. I only have a 3 1/2 lb. brain – if I could understand everything about God, he wouldn’t be much of a god. I like that fact that I can’t fully comprehend
* his omnipresence
* his holiness
* his righteousness
* his omnipotence.
I’m trying very hard to understand his grace so that I can live it every day.
We struggle to try to understand the Trinity – how complicated!
And I can visualize God smiling on us as we confuse ourselves by trying to fit his ‘Otherness’ into our human box. He knows he’s only told us Trinity 101 – it’s actually much more intricate and supernatural – we’ll never understand it. Ours 3 1/2 lb. brains just aren’t going to handle it.
So, this is where faith comes in. We believe it because we trust in God. We know God is perfect. We know he wants the best for us. He proved this by sending his best – Jesus- to die for us AND to show us how to live.
So we believe. And we walk by faith, not by sight.
Yes – we gradually unravel some of the mysteries of Christ. And there are so many more to go!
This brings me to share my decision to continue this journey with you through God’s word in 2014. I have learned so much these last 2 years by blogging through the Bible – I don’t feel like I can stop!
The Value of taking the journey.
I have also really enjoyed the ‘story’ feeling of the Chronological Bible so I’m going back to the beginning with this one.
I hope you will continue on the journey with me!
God has a lot more to say to us in 2014 and I’m REALLY looking forward to it!
