Who is this God?
On reflection I came to realise that the image we have of God will determine our thoughts about God, the world our response to mission, to the environment, other people.
It was a challenge to me to consider what my image of God is and how this image influences how I live and respond to God.
Part of the challenge is to examine what forms my image of God and how I have come to create this image.
Another interesting thought I have pondered this week... Seemingly unanswered prayer.
We consider Jesus prayer the night he was crucified, "take this cup from me..." An unanswered prayer, if you believe that Jesus was crucified and died. We often come to God in prayer frustrated when we don't get an answer, or the answer we were hoping for. There is something to that, the fact that Jesus prayed and did not receive an answer.
