I see the Lord (cover)

Another golden oldie resurfacing in my brain this week from the well known passage in Isaiah 6. I often wonder that today’s Christianity has lost some reverence and fear of a holy God. Too often I’m prone to making God into an image I’ve created by taking the verses of the Bible that seem more palatable. I will never know God truly if this is the case. Yes God is love but He is also just and holy. His love was so great to send His Son to pay the price for our sin so we could go to heaven. But Jesus talked more about Hell than heaven- it is a very real place and one we should make sure we’re not going to. We need to take in the whole picture of God in the Bible. Through suffering we identify with the sufferings of Christ. Not many of us would willingly invite adversity into our lives. My prayer is that I would know and worship the God of the Bible and not my own flawed concept of Him… “that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,..” Philippians 3:10

I’d love to hear your thoughts! 💜
