God Is Love

Charles Spurgeon once went down to visit a friend in the country. His friend had built a new barn, and above it he had placea a weather-vane bearing the text, “God Is Love”. “Do you mean”, asked spurgeon, “that God’s love is as changeable as the wind?” “No”, said his friend, “I mean that God is love, whichever way the wind blows!”

The Reality Of God

If the reality of God were small enough to be grasped, it would not be great enough to be adored.

The Elephant

There was once a blind man who wanted to know what an elephant was. So people brought one for him to touch. The man put out his hand and felt the trunk and said it was like a tree. His companions were also blind and wanted to find out about this creature. One grasped the ear and said it was like a fan. Another took hold of the tail and said it was like a rope. So each one believed he had the answer but none of them had grasped the whole truth.

Apollo 8

On Christmas Day 1968, the three astronauts of Apollo 8 circled the dark side of the moon and headed for home. Suddenly, over the horizon of the moon rose the blue and white Earth garlanded by the glistening light of the sun against the black void of space. Those sophisticated men, trained in science and technology, did not utter Einstein’s name. They did not even go to the poets, the lyricists, or the dramatists. Only one thing could capture the awe-inspiring thrill of this magnificent observation. Billions heard the voice from outer space as the astronaut read it: “In the beginning God”–the only concept worthy enough to describe that unspeakable awe, unutterable in any other way. “In the beginning God created”–the invasive, the inescapable sense of the infinite and the eternal.

Great to use during a Sunday service or within a small group.

The late S.M. Lockridge once presented an incredible message, describing our God and who He is. Though God can’t be described with just words, this is as close as you can get this side of Heaven.
