I am just getting to know a little bit about this guy named Tim Chester. But I believe he gives a good test for your understanding of the Gospel and relationship to God called the four G’s—four liberating truths about God:
- God is great—so we do not have to be in control
- God is glorious—so we do not have to fear others
- God is good—so we do not have to look elsewhere
- God is gracious—so we do not have to prove ourselves
My thinking is the degree to which these truths are embraced will be synonymous to ones apprehension, comprehension and deriving the implication of the Gospel. To know God is…is to know what we are not also. And in the Gospel we find those answers. What do you think?
Which of the four do you find yourself struggling to embrace?
Which of the four do you tend to make the priority?
