Is Our God is Too Small?
Updated: Sep 1, 2019
As a young Christian in the late 1960s, one of the books I still remember reading was J. B. Phillips’ book, 'Your God is too Small.' The reality is that as God’s people in the second decade of the twenty-first century we often have too small a view of God. Our understanding of who God is often limited and our comprehension of the overarching nature of the gospel too restricted as a result. Perhaps we each need to go on a journey of rediscovery to redefine and rediscover God in new and fresh ways that moved beyond the labels we have attributed to God. We need to search for an understanding of God, which is much bigger than the worn out labels we have habitually used for him. The world has changed dramatically but too often our concept of God has remained static. Let us go on a journey of rediscovery and dare to encounter God in new and fresh ways so that our faith may be reinvigorated and our understanding of God and his gospel enlarged.
