HE'S A BIG GOD 

Babylonian literature tells the story of a man who wanted to believe in God, but did not. He went to a Jewish teacher, saying, "If you'll show me God, I'll believe. Just show Him to me." The teacher said, "I will show you God—but first, go outside and gaze at the sun for five minutes." The man went outside, but he could not look at the sun for more than a few seconds. He told the rabbi that he had failed…that the sun was too bright to gaze upon.

The teacher nodded in agreement. "You could not look on a minor creation of God for even a minute—and yet you want to see Him who put the brilliance in the stars. You cannot. He is too big."

What a great word about the nature of God. He is a big God—too big for us to easily grasp or readily comprehend. And too majestic for us to take in more than a glimpse of His awesome character. Because He is so big, the distance between us is great. For me to understand all about God would be about as reasonable as expecting our Schnauzer Sonny to understand all about calculus…and Sonny's a smart dog! How grateful I am that God sent His Son Jesus Christ to live in the flesh and show us what He is like, up close. Jesus said, "He who has seen me has seen the Father." Through Him, we can gaze on God to our heart's content.

MEMORY VERSE 

O God, Thou are awesome from Thy sanctuary. The God of Israel Himself gives strength and power to the people. Blessed be
God!
