In Eternity past God limited His form
To dwell in a place He called Heaven
Yet His Spirit filled every space in the universe.
Two thousand years ago God limited His form
To dwell in a place He called Earth...
Came in the form of man to free us from The Curse.
Our fragile and finite minds will never grasp
The greatness or fathom the full measure of God.
He is too big to fill our senses and much too complex.
He is too mysterious to figure out
To the smallest detail, much less on a grand scale.
He can't be mapped and marked with an X.
He is the Alpha and Omega...the beginning and the end.
But, He has provided adequate instruction
Through His Word for us to be able to glance in.
And, although we see through a glass darkly,
We can walk in the illuminating Light of Christ
And have a relationship with God through Him.
If we have wondered about our purpose in life
And just why we were placed upon this planet,
We need not dwell on reasons or wonder anymore.
Scripture states we were created for God's good pleasure.
Not only does He interact with us...He enjoys us.
He is a Father to all who walk through The Door.
And The Door, of course, is the Lord Jesus Christ
Who became The Way to The Father through His sacrifice
On our behalf on the cruel Cross of Calvary.
God-in all His awesome attributes- may be hard to understand
But He is extremely easy to reach.
He's an approachable, forgiving God...a God who loves you and me.
