  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

April 9, 2012 - Awesome God!

By Patrick J. Donadio

What a magnificent, awesome, God we serve! Even with Easter Sunday still fresh on our hearts, it is so difficult for us to comprehend the huge price that was paid to redeem this sinful world. God temporarily gave up His attributes for us: His omnipotence, omniscience and His omnipresence.

Yet, in Christ’s emptying himself, we are confronted with the unimaginable greatness of God all over again. Omniscience — God knows all there is to know. Omnipresence — He is everywhere at the same time. Omnipotence — He is all-powerful. As a theologian, I could never comprehend that God always was and always will be. There is nothing He does not know, and His power is naturally incomprehensible.

Many people raise questions about God belligerently or in pursuit of an argument. Yet, our deepest questions, when issuing from a heart of praise, can energize our faith. I want you to meditate on these questions about our awesome God.

Who can grasp His infinite wisdom?

Who can comprehend the magnitude of His power?

Who can understand the depth of His grace?

Who can imagine the height of His compassion?

Who can grasp the splendor of His holiness?

As you dwell on those statements, I’m sure you will agree that God is infinitely far above us. Yet He loved us so much that He went to the cross and suffered that unthinkable crucifixion. With all God’s knowledge and power, He still has time to listen to us when we go to Him in prayer. The universe may be His throne and the Earth, His footstool, but He is small enough to live in our hearts.
