Not like us

In his ongoing study of Romans, Scot McKnight reminds readers of an important quality of God:
The gospel message is that God is not like us, but we are called to be like God: and that means we become agents of God’s embracing grace.

One further thought: God is not like us, and that’s a good thing.
Why is it a good thing? Read Scot's post to find out.

Isn't it also important that God will empower us to be like Him through His Agent, the Holy Spirit. True Communion. PF

Yes it is, PF. We are exalted in sharing in the Holy Spirit. But I think remembering the otherness of God keeps us humble. Peace.
