Lost for Words

We are often lost for words when describing God. One version of the Bible has used the most telling words they can thing of. It tells us that ‘God’s love is meteoric.’ What a lovely word. With meteors we think of luminous stars shooting across the sky from horizon to horizon, just like the love of God. ‘God’s loyalty is astronomic.’ Again the writer has turned to the skies.

‘God’s purpose is titanic,’ using the image of the sunken ship and the power of the Titan race. ‘God’s verdict is oceanic.’ The writer turns again to nature using the thought of water which covers so much of the world’s surface. The book of Proverbs is further evidence of this.

Whatever words are used, they are completely incapable of describing our God!
