We’re able to picture superheroes that can fly or bend time. But our minds can only stretch so far. There are powers that go beyond our mental capacity. Things like:
- Being everywhere at once
- Existing eternally without a beginning
- Having command of every molecule
Our imagination wasn’t built to contain all the complexities of God, and yet…
I get Jesus.
That’s what so crazy. By understanding Jesus, I do understand God. He said, “Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. And whoever sees me sees him who sent me” (John 12:44-45).
You and I can’t plumb the depths of the universe for the answers to why some things are the way they are. I don’t get why a hurricane the size of North America rages on Jupiter and never stops. I don’t fully get eternality, or why other kids in the oncology clinic had life-threatening cancers when I didn’t.
But I get Jesus.
And by seeing Him, I can see the Good Father who holds all the answers.
“For we don’t preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake; seeing it is God who said, ‘Light will shine out of darkness’ who has shone in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:5-6
