Showing God in action in and through His people.
Understanding God is not a simple task. I readily admit that, like all human beings, I am incapable of completely understanding the attributes of our awesome God who reigns in overwhelming majesty. Who am I, a mere man, trying to understand the God of the universe who is all-powerful, holy, and righteous? But I know without a doubt that God wants us to really know Him.
Let me go back to my analogy of the mite on the flea on the dog. The mite had given up hope that he could ever understand the mighty king. Then it was as though King Solomon searched out that insignificant mite. First, the king found the owner of that small home on the outskirts of Jerusalem. He stepped into the yard, found the dog, then the flea, and finally, with astonishing loving kindness, told the mite – in the mite's own limited language – all about himself.
But amazingly, God went even further. He did not just content Himself with speaking to us through our limited language. Instead, He assumed our limited form – that of a human – setting aside His riches and splendor and honor to become like us! That, of course, was the miraculous day when God was born as a baby in a manger in the small village of Bethlehem. That baby's name was Jesus. This demonstration of God's love is beyond my comprehension and shows His great desire for us to know Him. God's willingness to become a man changed forever the way I can relate with Him.
