Why do you want a puny god? Basically a do-nothing god that has nothing to say. A puny god can do nothing for you.
Why do you want such a puny, little god? A god that is barely a footnote in your life. Maybe if he’s lucky he gets an hour or so each Sunday. There, there. There’s a nice little god.
Wouldn’t you rather have a God of justice, power and grace? Why not choose this God?
A God that restores you, heals you, frees you and saves you.
A God that puts your life in order.
In love, power and all the abundance of the Spirit.
A God that reaches down, pulls you out of the pit and places you upon a throne.
A God that gives all for a speck of flesh clinging to a tiny clot of earth in His great universe. All His great love poured out for you.
That would be a God you could worship and bow down to in reverence and repentance.
A God you could devote to and obey.
That would be a great God.
