Last time we considered how God is indescribable. When Jesus came in human form, we saw God as fully human. A form we had some chance of understanding. It’s important that we realize Jesus isn’t a lesser form of God. He is as fully divine as he is fully human. If we spent every moment of our lives, getting to know Him, we would still fall short of complete knowledge. That’s why heaven will not be boring. It will take us full eternity to have any real knowledge of God.
We should not miss the opportunity to know Jesus in this life. Our knowledge is principally based on our experience. In my life I have known Him as provider. He has healed me of a damaged knee and of the pain of a lossed child. He has revealed Himself to me in the beauty of His creation and in the move of His Spirit among the lost, particularly those in prison.
I have learned of Him through the experiences of others. I have seen addictions melt away. I have seen lives of complete self-centeredness become useful instruments of His love. I have been blessed to witness the power of forgiveness, not just to the forgiven, but also to those who dare to forgive.
I have seen the scriptures open up with wonderful revelation where before there were only clouds and confusion. I have seen grumpy, gloomy personalities become lights to a struggling world.
I can’t describe God to you, not in anything approaching completeness. I can introduce you to Jesus who is God in the flesh and that’s been enough for me.
