INCOMPREHENSIBLE THINGS! (“Are You Incomprehensible?” revision)


“Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19

Hello Friends:

     Welcome to the website. Remember again what Jesus said in Matthew 4:19, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” I’m revising my last post made about a week ago. I thought about the premise I made of God making US incomprehensible, as the title of my last post indicates. But really, HE is the One that is incomprehensible—and He shows us, when we call out to Him, those incomprehensible things that we didn’t know beforehand. So the title of my revision is, “Incomprehensible Things!”
     Again, Merriam-Webster dictionary defines incomprehensible as the following: “impossible to understand”. Why would a Bible verse then declare that people of God would be able to understand—something impossible to understand? Here is the verse in Jeremiah 33:3: “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and incomprehensible things which you do not know.”
     We discussed last time that intellectuals over the years have shared their belief that people who believe in God need a “crutch” because of their weakness. We discussed the fact that Christians oftentimes get a bad rap, sometimes, justifiably so. But that bad rap has absolutely nothing to do with God or God’s promises to us.
     When God tells us that He will show us incomprehensible things, things impossible to understand, where else do we get that affirmation? Nowhere! We as Christians sometimes feel insecure and don’t understand why people don’t like us. But then we need to remember—that God loves—in fact He really likes us—so much that we have the inside track—no one else—on Him showing us “incomprehensible things”.

Until I see you next time keep sharing the wonderful love of Jesus,
