Have you ever come on anything quite like this extravagant generosity of God, this deep, deep wisdom? It's way over our heads. We'll never figure it out. Romans 11:33

 

Of all the passages in the Bible that speak to God's greatness, perhaps none contains so much truth compacted into only four verses. This passage has been called a "doxology of theology" and an "explosion of praise." The words are bracing, hopeful, and breathtaking. No Bible expositor ever feels adequate when faced with a marvelous paragraph like this.

 

Because he is God, no words or thoughts of mortal men and women could ever compass his greatness. 
  • He is far bigger than we imagine,
  • He is more powerful than we know, wiser than all the wisdom of the wisest men and women, 
  • His love is beyond human understanding, his grace has no limits, 
  • His presence fills the universe, 
Bottom line God is God and we are not.  Romans 11:33-36 is so full of so many things that define God as "AWESOME" and because of this truth we should be very thankful! 

 

As we approach this thanksgiving season let's not forget how awesome our God is!!! God is the source of all things, the sustainer of all things and the supreme purpose of all things!  To God Be The Glory!

 

It continues to be a delight of our to be on this journey with each of you!!! Pastor Jeff

 Better an open reprimand than concealed love. The wounds of a friend are trustworthy, but the kisses of an enemy are excessive. 
Proverbs 27:5-6
 
How do you know when to share the right word, in the right way, at the right time, to the right person?  How do you do so in a way that does not offend, but rather comes across in love and care?
 
The actions of society today encourages conversation that is guarded even to the point that one could stop and ask themselves "is this really a conversation I should be a part or even share my thoughts."  We are just suppose to let people live their life they way they want to, because it is not "my" place to tell them what they have done wrong. Culture does not desire to be told that what is being done is wrong...each individual is to mind their own business and worry not about anyone else. 
 
As believers we must learn how and when to speak.  We need to stop and ask ourselves; "Am I the right person, to share the right word, with the right individual, at the right time. As followers of Christ we are commanded to speak up and to hold one another accountable. We are to be willing to give an open reprimand. 

Let's strive to speak up with gentleness and love or as Paul calls "speaking truth in love." (Eph. 4:15) God continues to move at UABC!!
