I am teaching a Fundamentals of the Faith class in Sunday School. This Sunday morning will be our 5th week. We are tackling theology proper – God’s character and attributes.
On January 7, 1855, Charles Spurgeon shared:
Plunge yourself in the Godhead’s deepest sea; be lost in His immensity; and you shall come forth as from a couch of rest refreshed and invigorated. I know nothing which can so comfort the soul, so calm the swelling billows of sorrow and grief; so speak peace to the winds of trial, as devout musing upon the subject of the Godhead.
During Sunday School, we will be looking at God’s holiness, righteousness and justice, sovereignty, eternality, immutability, omniscience, omnipresence, omnipotence, love, truth, and mercy.
In thinking of God’s righteousness and justice, what do all the readers of this blog think about this quote?
There is no law above God, but there is a law in God.
– taken from The Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible
(And another sidenote – When reading and discussing Christian fundamentalism, I enjoyed this recent post by Tony Payne on Christian fundamentalism. As a fundamentalist, I love talking about the Trinity. What better topic is there to talk about and teach in America? Experientially knowing and loving and worshipping the Trinity is the heart of Christianity. And it will be that way forever.)
IF there is a “law in God”, it can only be “the law of love”.
