Greater than human understanding


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times The spoken word and the written word are how human beings communicate, how we express ourselves, and, in the case of the written word, how we preserve our insights, ideas, views, and histories for posterity. We have also developed technology that enables us to record and preserve for posterity the spoken word and we have also developed technology that enables us to preserve the sights of the world around us and the images that have their origins in our imagination. For all of our long experience with the spoke and written word and the technologies which enable us to preserve them, humanity has yet to find the words that truly express the depths, heights, power, and majesty of God and His love for us. That’s because human understanding is finite whereas God is infinite and what is finite can barely even grasp the concept of, let along the reality of, the infinite. With our limitations we cannot truly express the reality of God and His love for us, love so great that He would sacrifice His own Son on our behalf. What we can do, however, is accept His love for us and place our faith in Him and allow Him to guide us throughout our lives so that we may always know His love for us. As we do so, we can use the spoken word, the written word, and the technologies that enable us to record, transmit and preserve them along with the rest of our communications technologies to share the good news of God’s love for us all.
