To fully understand the vast measure of His grace, you need to have at least a rudimentary understanding of the nature of God, Himself.  He is more than we can ever understand, but He does not withhold all knowledge from us, and in fact tells us to ask Him for wisdom which will lead to understanding which will lead, if you are honest with yourself, with a deep and soul-shaking revelation of our place in the universe...  He gives to us both specific and general grace.  Do you know the difference?  If not, learn it.  Do you understand grammatical tenses?  "I AM" is in a tense we almost cannot explain in English... Do you know what that tense means?  If not, learn it.  Do you know the size of the cosmos? where does life really come from? what is the true meaning of life? the power it takes to direct the Almighty? or just what is the most meaningful thing you can do in life?  So many questions! So many answers that elude mankind, unless they choose to learn of God and His nature...  Of His nature, the Bible says that God is good, so here is something to remember ~ if God is good, then being good is, therefore, being Godlike....   Deacon Josh explores and explains the foundational nature of God.  We are challenged to understand and be like Him. If you do not understand, and you do not know His nature, if you are struggling with meaning in life, if you do not have an answer for even one of the above questions, listen and learn ~ it will make all the difference in your walk here on earth, and maybe even for your eternity.
