…for who He is: his person and character
God has graciously taken the initiative in revealing to humanity not just his plans but his person. The sermon to the Hebrews begins, “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.”
This week, take another new page in your journal and write down as much as you can, completing the phrase: “I know God to be…” In this way, we will avoid too many abstract ideas which, although excellent theology, may not lead to doxology.
As you did in the previous week, use this page in your journal as a springboard for prayers of praise.
