Intimacy

Intimacy. Breathtaking Intimacy.

The God of power, might and majesty,

Creator and Sustainer of the world – and all that is in it and around it,

Entering His Creation, to form and enjoy a relationship with His man and woman – with people.

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? (Psalm 8: 1, 3-4)

It is a truth that is unthinkable – so many do not think it.

It is a beauty unimaginable – and yet knowable.

It is the glory and love of God revealed, and fully and finally in His Christ.

And then, the almost unbelievable.

The Fall – and God comes looking.

God seeks. God finds. God confronts. God banishes – but before they go,

God Himself clothes them with garments of skin that He Himself had made.

Skin – the first sacrifice made for mankind – the skin of a lamb?

Unbelievable, if it were not true.

Genesis One – glorious, sweeping , unending majesty.

Genesis Two and Three – heartstopping intimacy and love.

The Pillars of the Gospel.

And so, the glory of God revealed in Genesis – is the glory of God revealed in His revelation of Himself.

In Jesus – who displayed that majesty with the power of His word, and the same intimacy with the wonder of His life, actions and ministry.

Our God – a God of Majesty and Intimacy.

Glory to God in the highest – there is indeed none like You.

We acknowledge, honour and adore You.

You alone are holy.

You alone are God.

You.

God.
