What God is Not

God is not a blurry power living somewhere in the sky, not an abstraction like the Greeks proposed, not a sensual super-human like the Romans worshipped, and definately not the absentee watchmaker of the Deists.  God is personal.  He enters into people’s lives, messes with families, shows up in unexpected places, chooses unlikely leaders, calls people to account.  Most of all God loves.

  1. That’s true, but, I did have a dream the night I accepted Him into my life, and there were bright colors, swirling in a circle, and at the center was God but it was too bright to see Him. He did speak to me and it was the most wonderful sound in the universe.

  2. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

    … and that Son, Jesus, Who gave His life for His people, said:

    I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father but through Me (John 14:6).
