No matter how we stretch, we cannot wrap our imaginations around Almighty God.
He is God our Father and Creator. The physical world is a picture of His generosity, His wisdom, and His unbounded power. The seasons and centuries sing His faithfulness. The heavens are a tiny window to the mystery and infinity of His being. Every moment, from birth to death, He wraps us in the light and texture of His love.
He is God the Son. He is all of God become completely human…just like us but without sin. He emptied Himself to become our Brother, our Savior, our Sacrifice, our Healer. He is the new Adam, inviting us to be born again into a whole new race of holy, glorified beings filled with His endless life.
He is God the Spirit. He is the breath of God within us. He is love, wisdom, and power uniting with who we are, giving us everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3, NIV).
Our imaginations cannot encompass the Almighty Triune God. But He encompasses us, body and soul, imagination and spirit, every breath and throughout eternity.
The prize held out before us is
not material blessings—
not in this world and not in the next.
The prize God offers is Himself,
with all the life and love that are in Him.
