1 Corinthians 8:2 is a short verse, but one that has come to have real meaning in my life,
And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know.
Here is what this verse has come to mean to me: The more I realize of God, the more I realize how little I know of God.
It is almost as if God is represented by this enormous mountain, and it is shrouded in fog. As the fog retreats, I can see how vast this mountain is and how little I have really seen, how little I have explored, how little I have experienced. I am in awe as I look at this enormous mountain.
I once thought, "I'm really mature in God. I've learned so much. Look at these gems I've dug out! And I've experienced this, and I've climbed here, and I've looked from the heights." Then the fog began to roll away, and I realized I hadn't even gotten out of the foothills yet.
God just really amazes me.
Think about God. He merely spoke and created the universe. I read an article not too long ago where scientists now think that perhaps there is not just a "universe" but there is really a "multiverse," or multiple universes.
Whether it is one that spans millions of light years, or multiple universes spanning even greater distances, God made it all just by saying something.
And that is what I mean. The more I learn of God, the more I am amazed at just how little I really know of Him. I hope you too will be amazed, and let that wonder and amazement bring you into the worship of our great and awesome God!
