( We are having morning service tomorrow in person. There is also a taped service on our website to listen to.)How does God listen to our worship ?
God is beyond humanity and is indescribable. God does not have eyes or ears, so how does God sit down and listen to us when we sing and pray. Does God have a chair to sit on ? And how does God ” listen” to a million prayers at the same time. There is no human way to do this.
So, what does it mean for God to become human through Jesus Christ ? What did God give up to allow part of God to be like us ? But, God cannot be different parts, God must be indivisible ! God must be one, but what does that do to his Son and Spirit. Three in one, and one in three. This does not add up to my human mind ? And what about Jesus’ suffering ? Was it like our suffering or was it divinely different ?
“You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak;
I will question you,
and you shall answer me.’
My ears had heard of you
but now my eyes have seen you.
Therefore I despise myself
and repent in dust and ashes.”
I have spoken enough
These are my questions Lord.
I have many more: in my soul
i will sit down
in my favourite chair
and listen to
your divinely inspired answers. AMEN
