Reflecting on a verse from Psalm 86, I realised how different God is from us. Well, perhaps I should be more honest and say, "how different I am from Jesus." It brought to mind the term 'otherness' - God is like no other Being in heaven or on earth. Everything about God is different.
To illustrate what I mean, take a read of the verse I am referring to:
"But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness." - Psalm 86:15 (NIV)
Where I lack compassion, God is always FULL of compassion. Where I lack grace, Jesus is gracious. When I get impatient and easily angered, God is slow to get angry. Where my love is weak, God's love is abounding. When I give up too easily, Jesus is always Faithful.
Boy, I am grateful for the 'Otherness' of God today.
