An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

The Image of Lego

(Romans 8:15 KJV) For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

How can we assume the arrogance to consider ourselves children of God? Because He created us and adopted us. As I comprehend eternity I think of the sovereignty of God and all the “omni’s” that go along with Him. I anticipate an infinite number of “aha’s” and “eureka’s” as I grow and learn. At the same time because I am created in His image there is a way in which I fit in naturally.

Picture a universe filled with Legos. An infinite number of pieces that can be fit together in a mind boggling number of ways. I am one little Lego. I am nothing compared to the whole, but because I am made in the image of Lego, I can fit comfortably together with any other piece in the set. If I can comprehend it with man-made toys, why should it be hard to accept it of an infinite God?
