God is Love

Who is God? July 20, 1997

No one has seen God at anytime. What therefore is God like, what is God’s personality, attributes, character? The quick answer is

GOD IS LOVE

And what that love is and how it is expressed is revealed to us through the Bible and best expressed to us through Jesus Christ Our Lord. If you want a quick summary of God’s nature, who God is, what God is like; you will find it summed up in two words:

JESUS CHRIST

Look at him and how He lived his life, what he taught and did and you’ll get a picture, a big picture of God the Almighty. Our God is not small. Or God is Big.

On the news these days we constantly hear about outer space exploration. We are getting some idea of what the Cosmos is, how it began and what it is made up of. I wouLD like to suggest that at the very centre of theniversie, is God, and that means at the very heart of the universe is love. For God is love. Let’s explore some of the implications that. And the way I like to describe it is with a diagram — what I call the Wheel of Love.

Our epistle read this morning is from Ephesians. That has been called rightly the Epistle of the Cosmos, and in it is a description of the Cosmological Christ. And I’ll draw upon Ephesians this morning as a basis for my diagram of the Wheel of Love.

There are more spokes to the Wheel than this as the wheel is multi-spoked.

Thanks, Martin

We may not always find time to meet for coffee, but we can nevertheless share our thoughts and feelings here. Mindful, of course, that anything we write is monitored by the CIA, the NSA, and, on Thursdays and Sundays, by CSIS. Nevertheless, let me be one of the first to take a step on the Pilgrim’s way. BTW, my computer consulting company is Pilgrim Computer Resources, because I recognized long ago that as we enter the digital age, we are all pilgrims in a new sense. I would also highly recommend Eugene Peterson’s book Travelling Light, where he discusses the freedom that we have in Christ in this pilgrimage.

Welcome to PilgrimsProgress.ca

This site is meant to honour my father, John Martin Buck, who taught me what it is to be a follower of Jesus Christ. I plan to place his prayers and sermons here so that others may get a sense of this faithful pilgrim’s progress while he walked this earth. It is also a venue where others, including myself, can share their experiences on the pilgrims’ walk.
