So the question is, What if God was one of us?
Answer: He is like us! We've been created in Him image and He's in us, am I right?
Therefore, God is not as complex as we make Him out to be.
God gets angry, His feelings get hurt, He gets sad - the Bible proves that! Don't we all feel those things from time to time too?
So why are we trying so hard to solve the mystery - there is no mystery! God is our Father and we are His children! As long as you are doing what you're supposed to do, there's always going to be a family resemblance!
It's not that deep, my friends!
But what we can't do is belittle who He is. God is still God and He still sits on the throne - don't forget that.
Granted, we are nowhere near perfect like God is and we never will be, but that's why he sent Jesus - so He could understand why we act the way we do sometimes. Now that we have an intercessor, God is better able to understand us and we are better able to understand Him!
Thank you, Jesus! Seriously, thanks. Most of us probably wouldn't have made it if you wouldn't have paid the Earth a visit, just sayin'.
Maybe I'm rambling on, I don't know. But I hope you got my point:
God is not as mystical and spooky as people try to make Him out to be. He is simply a loving Father who wants the best for His children. Doesn't that sound like most people today?
Just embrace Him for who He is and get to know Him for yourself - you won't regret it!
I have a feeling I'm going to do a post on family resemblance, so be on the lookout for that!
