God’s greatness is such a deep, vast topic it would take up a million pages to even get started, so I’d like to focus on six aspects of His greatness that stick out to me and then you can take it from there and discover more about His greatness in your own life.
God’s love is incredible. Have you ever just taken a moment to ponder it? It’s deeper and wider than the ocean, it outnumbers every grain of sand on the earth – it is immeasurable. He loves us SO much, more than we can comprehend. He loved us – adored us – so much that He gave His only Son to die so we could live with Him forever. There’s not a better, more perfect image of love than that.
Our God is merciful, as we read time and time again in the Bible. What is His mercy? Synonyms for the word include: benevolence, blessing, forgiveness, generosity, goodwill, grace, sympathy, favor, kindliness, softheartedness, tenderness and more. Isn’t that beautiful? God is all of those things and more wrapped up in His beautiful aspect of mercy.
God’s amazing aspect that grants us the ability to live with Him forever – His forgiveness. No matter what we have done on this earth, no matter what’s been done to us, none of that matters because He forgives us. Through His Son whom He gave to die an excruciating death to pay for our sins – each and every one of our sins – we have the ability to come to God through Jesus, to truly repent and ask forgiveness for our sins and it will be granted to us. Just think about that. He loves us so, so much that He will do everything so we can live with Him forever. I’ve never heard of Anyone greater.
Another aspect of God’s greatness is His kindness. Over and over and over in the Bible we read about His kindness towards mankind. In the garden He clothed Adam and Eve, He gave Noah wisdom to build the Ark, He was kind to Abraham in saving Isaac, He saved Daniel from the lions den, He gave David the ability to conquer Goliath – I could go on forever and those are only instances in the Bible. Look around your life today for tell-tale signs of God’s kindness and I guarantee you one hundred percent you won’t come up empty.
God’s Son, Jesus Christ – the Savior of the world – God’s greatest gift to man. He sent His Son to die for us in order that we could live forever in Heaven with Himself, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. If that doesn’t fill you with awe of God’s greatness, then I don’t know what will. When Christ was born, the world was never the same and when we accept Him into our hearts, we are never the same. What greatness.
Look around you! Every single thing you see was created by God. Every mountain, every valley, every ocean, every tree – and especially you – were all created by Him. Man is His greatest creation, fashioned in the likeness of God Himself. Isn’t that incredible? You are fashioned in the likeness of God; therefore you have no right to ever think of yourself as ugly – ever – because you are created by God who is perfect, and you bear His likeness. Think of the cells in the human body, the brain, the eyes – unimaginable in how to create to a human, and yet God designed them all.
God is so great; He loves us, He is merciful towards us, He forgives us, He is kind towards us, He gave His Son for us, He created us…He deserves our infinite praise. May we never underestimate His greatness.
