The Greatness of God

So when last were you blown away by the Greatness of God? In Jesus' day it seemed a daily occurence for people to be left 'wide-mouthed' in awe at something that Jesus said or did. Luke 9:43 - "And they were amazed at the greatness of God!" Sometimes I feel that we have become numbed into thinking that Jesus only showed up in the Biblical times - how wrong is that? He is awesome - He is great - He is eternal. Napoleon once commented that 'Greatness be nothing unless it be lasting.' How true you are Mr. Bonapart. Our Saviour is Great not only because of everything he has done for us, but because he is "from everlasting to everlasting." Just for kicks, read Psalm 77:13-15 and note a few of the things our Great God has done - God, you are really awesome! So here is our challenge - let's become like little kids again and appreciate the wonder and amazement of Jesus Christ. Be Blessed and don't forget to LIVE IN GRACE.

Hi Delme - remember me from way back at Bryanston? Someone mentioned you, I wondered if you had a blog and came to visit!

We had Angus Buchan in Joburg on Saturday and I said to our congregation on Sunday evening, 'Do you think Jesus was received the way Angus Buchan is?'. We'd just read one of those passages where 'everyone believed in him' (John 2:23). There was one of those shocked moments as people took stock. Interesting!
