Few posts have brought me as much joy as this post by Pastor Mark Moore. It speaks to the message that blazes within my heart and pulses through this blog – our picture of God. Below is an excerpt. I pray you’ll read the entire post and let its truth fill you with joy. God bless, friends!
From Mark’s Post:
These days I have one presupposition about God–He is just like Jesus.
Rather than thinking about God’s character from above, we need to think about it from below. Rather than thinking of God in the clouds, we need to think of God on wood–the wood of the manger and the wood of the cross. This way of thinking about God situates him among us (which was his choice) and renders him comprehensible (this too was his choice). I’m going to call this the John 1 way of thinking about God.
…and the John 14 way of thinking about God
…and the Hebrews 1 way of thinking about God
…let’s just call this the Jesus way of thinking about God
…as a matter of fact, let’s just call this the right way of thinking about God.
