Beginning this Sunday we will start a new sermon series on what is traditionally referred to as the attributes of God entitled “Show Me Your Glory.” I enter this subject with both the hope that we will see more of God’s glory as revealed in Christ and with prayerful humility. A wrong or warped view of God can have devastating effects upon an individual and the church. But a deepening grasp of God’s character, while always incomplete, will yield a growing maturity and confidence in a believer’s walk with Christ. This is going to be even more essential in our times.
I am reminded of the words of A. W. Tozer, which I read as a young believer.
“The gravest question before the Church is always God Himself…Always the most revealing thing about the Church is her idea about God, just as her most significant message is what she says about Him or leaves unsaid, for her silence is often more eloquent than her speech. She can never escape the self disclosure of her witness concerning God.” (Knowledge of the Holy, pg. 9).
What are your ideas about God? I humbly hope you will plan on attending and/or follow the series online as it unfolds.
