The Word of God

Hebrews 1:1-2 In the past God spoke to our people through the prophets. He spoke to them many times and in many different ways. And now in these last days, God has spoken to us again through his Son. He made the whole world through his Son. And he has chosen his Son to have all things.

If I asked you to pick 7 adjectives to describe God, what would they be? And, more to the point, what evidence would you use to support your choices?

I’m not sure exactly what I expected God to be like. Is He an old man with a big stick? Maybe. Is He into religion and churchy stuff? Probably?

And then I stumbled across this Jesus (allegedly the Son of God) and let me tell you, He is absolutely not at all what I expected Him to be. This Jesus who tells it the way it is; who cuts through the religious hypocrisy to the heart of the matter, who rails against the religious leaders of His day and at the same time tends the wounds of the outcasts, the lepers, and brings sight to the blind. This man who called the ordinary people like you and me into the presence of God.

The Jesus of the Bible is both confronting and unexpected. He puts His finger on the stuff in your life that’s wrong … and then, He goes and gets Himself nailed to a brutal, bloody cross, to pay the price for all that stuff that’s wrong.

Nope. This wild, untamed Jesus is definitely not who we expect Him to be, and at times, He’s not at all who we’d like Him to be. For many, it’s far safer to invent a softer, fluffier version of Jesus to suit themselves.

So, let me ask you again, what’s God like?

Hebrews 1:1-2 In the past God spoke to our people through the prophets. He spoke to them many times and in many different ways. And now in these last days, God has spoken to us again through his Son. He made the whole world through his Son. And he has chosen his Son to have all things.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
