We serve a great God

The greatness of God is unfathomable. Who can measure it? We believe through faith in the Christ-child, who came to earth as a human while still God, and sometimes find ourselves asking why? It leaves us flummoxed. This God-person stepped from eternity into time and space for the purpose of redeeming man from the wickedness of our own disobedience. Once again, what’s the purpose of it all?

When Jesus came to earth the first time, he came as a peaceful. loving servant. He healed the sick and caused the blind to see. The miracles he performed drew many, but the essence of who he was became an anathema to some, and so he was hung to die. Yet the greatness of Christ did not let death claim him. He had the victory because he was God!

We sing such spiritual songs as How Great Thou Art and He Lives with tears because the magnificence of such a being is so uplifting, it shatters our emotions. That we could be so loved by him is more than great. There are no words that can truly describe our Savior.

We may never know the answers to why? But that’s okay. If we are to know, one day, we will.

     He set my feet upon a rock and established my goings…and he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God. Many shall see it and fear and shall trust in the LORD ~ Psalm 40:2-3.
