Finding Out about God from the Source

People usually begin their description of God with words similar to these,

“Well, for me, God is like….”

Regardless of what they say about God, their reliability comes into question because their data comes from a very biased source – themselves. Much of our information about God comes from what people think about him based on what they’ve heard, seen and experienced. Some of their material might be legitimate, but wouldn’t it be nice if God opened up about himself and tell us what he is like?

Jesus Christ told three stories about God which serve as some very helpful first hand information about the Almighty. The reason we can say Jesus has this kind of credibility is that he not only claimed to be God, but went a long way in proving that statement through his resurrection from the dead. What is shocking about Jesus’ description of God is that it is so positive! For the last 50 years or so people have felt the need to put God in his place. As a result, many have only a distorted cartoon caricature of the One who made them. What Jesus says, however, erases any such possibilities.

When we let God speak for himself, the news is too good not to pay attention. If you have been down on God lately, join us for one of our services this weekend. You need to get your information from the source!
