Today's Verse : 2 Chronicles 6:18


June 18, 2012

"But will God really dwell on earth with men? The heavens, even
the highest heavens, cannot contain you. How much less this temple
I have built!"
-- 2 Chronicles 6:18

As Solomon dedicated the Temple, he realized that this
tremendous accomplishment of great beauty was far too insignificant
and small to house the Creator of the Universe. But, God did choose
to dwell with mortals. That is what the life of Jesus is about
(John 1:11-18). God is awesome and beyond description, far too holy
to be expected to associate with flawed human beings. As God,
however, he has chosen to love us and come and live with us so we
can return to him and share in his glory.

Almighty God and Sovereign Father, you are more magnificent than
my words can describe and more gracious than my heart can fully
grasp. Thank you for your glory that is beyond human comprehension
and your grace that bridges the awesome distance between us. Thank
you, dear Father, for being God. In Jesus' name I praise. Amen.
