Is It About You or About God?
What has gone wrong with us Christian people? Three hundred years ago people used to write books on the attributes of God. They preached on them for months, and the people were delighted to hear them. But today we are so practical, we want short cuts. We do not think about God in his glorious attributes; we are just interested in blessings and experiences and in our own activities. We have gone seriously astray. Do we like to think of the everlasting and eternal God, existing in eternity, deciding for some amazing reason to create the world and to create man and to have man as a companion for himself? Do you meditate upon this glorious God and all his great purposes—how he governs by his providence, how he has provided for us?
