God – What is HE like?

Crucifixion - 2When the Master arrived on earth, He twisted everyone’s concept of God.

Occasionally, as I surf online and find articles of interest, I will download them, hoping I will eventually read them at an appropriate time.

An appropriate time just happened, and I fell into the following list I had saved from one of my surfing excursions. Although the intent of the author is give scriptural credence to the belief of Salvation of All through Jesus Christ, the list hit me with how different the Master is from me.

Read the verses below, (I have left the authors comments in for effect) and consider Who He is. (and who we are not.)

Drop me a line to discuss.

Personally, I find the volume of verses supplied above to be daunting, and somewhat revealing as to the lack of His character I have acquired in my walk with Him.  He is so far above us and without equal!
