Behold Your God, Winter 2013
Who are You God? Isn’t that an amazing question? We will wrestle with that question in this series on the attributes of God. We live in a culture today where God is being reimagined before our very eyes. We are encouraged to let our god be whomever we need Him to be. How often have you heard someone say, “my ‘god’ would never do anything like….?”
In order to know the true God, He must reveal Himself to us. AW Tozer writes: “Among the sins to which the human heart is prone, hardly any other is more hateful to God than idolatry…the idolatrous heart assumes God is other than He is. … a god begotten in the shadows of a fallen heart will quite naturally be no true likeness of the true God.”
