What A Strange God Jesus Is
Most of us that grew up or have been in the church for a while probably just take it for granted that Jesus is God. We have heard about him all of our lives or for so long that He seems perfectly normal to us.
However, how about to other people around the world? I doubt it and I think we can get a glimpse of that in the Bible in Acts.
In Acts 17, Paul is preaching in the marketplace in Athens. The philosophers told him that he was bringing strange ideas to them.
Did you catch that?
The idea of Jesus is called strange.
Jesus is a strange god to them.
Let’s be honest. He really is.
If I was going to create a god, he sure wouldn’t be like Jesus.
I would create this god who would be served by everyone. Paul preaches that God is not served by human hands. Instead, He serves us. He gives us life and breath and everyone else.
Jesus said the same thing, didn’t He? He said that He did not come to be served, but to serve.
The One who we worship does need us to serve Him. We cannot add one thing to His life. He serves us. Everything we have and need comes from Him.
What a strange God Jesus is.
Have you ever thought about how strange God is?
