"Behold Your God" by David Fullerton (guest blogger)
Posted June 26th, 2012 by Pastor_David
How well do you know God? If you're like me, there are some things about God that make you a little uncomfortable. It is much easier to love and worship God for his grace, love, and mercy than it is to love him for his justice, wrath, and holiness. How should we worship God for his majesty and power? What does it mean for God to be all-knowing, all-powerful, and omnipresent? God calls us to know him -- to love him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength -- but learning to know and worship him is a life-long task meant to be done in community. (read more)
This summer, Pastor David and I will lead a class on Wednesday nights to explore the question of "Who is God?" Each week we'll talk about a different attribute of God -- his holiness, his justice, his grace, his omnipotence -- and open our hearts, minds, and souls to the reality of God revealed in the Bible. We'll discuss how to love God for all of his characteristics, how to worship him with joy and reverence, and how to apply the knowledge of God to our lives.
Our prayer is that we would be transformed -- "renewed in knowledge after the image of our Creator" (Col 3:10) -- and we hope that you will join us.
Details: Wednesday nights in July & August, starting July 11th, 7:30 to 9:30pm Optional pizza and fellowship at 6:45 (bring $5). Instructors are David Ellis and David Fullerton.
“Do you not know that God dwells in light inaccessible? We weak and ignorant creatures want to probe and understand the incomprehensible majesty of the unfathomable light of the wonder of God. We approach; we prepare ourselves to approach. What wonder then that his majesty overpowers us and shatters!” (Martin Luther)
“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us…. For this reason the gravest question before the Church is always God Himself, and the most portentous fact about any [person] is not what he at a given time may say or do, but what he is his deep heart conceives God to be like. We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God.” (A.W. Tozer)
