What Is Your God Like?
Ever since sin began, human beings have let their minds run with a fascinating question. "If there is a god, what is he like?" Human answers come pouring in.

We've heard about God as an impersonal force, as unfeeling as a jolt of electricity. God as tolerant grandfather, wanting all to be happy in their own ways. God as a cosmic bookkeeper, who lives to catch us doing wrong. God with his hands full, a higher power who wishes he could do more to help. God as a crutch, which the weak dreamed up. God as myth, as irrelevant idea, as not-so-harmless fiction invented by those hungry to control.

Maybe there are many gods. Maybe everything you see is god. Maybe we are god. Maybe, in some crazy way, god is all of the above. Maybe no matter what each person calls him, it all refers to the same god.

It's all just talk.

Across all the centuries of human speculation about God, however, there is one moment that is utterly unique.

"...and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son."

I see his hand wrapped around Joseph's thumb...then reaching for an untouchable leper...clawing the ground of Gethsemane...then being cruelly nailed to the wood. I see a scarred hand lifted up in blessing.

And I know who God is. 

Taken from Prepared to Answer by Mark A. Paustian
