It stands out…it stand alone…it is untouchable! For a huge component of our world population, Incredulous is the word they’d rather grasp onto, discounting the complete awe and reality of an intelligent Creator; even presented with physical and scientific fact – all of this cannot have just happened!
Our God, one who is discounted as a figment of ‘religion’ by unbelievers, but the first to be identified as the one to pray to when it all turns to custard! Why is it that our world is intent on praying to someone…something that supposedly doesn’t exist? I find this not only intriguing but incredibly amusing. Can we put it down to Gods sheer awesomeness? I put it down to His sheer outstanding-ness…the world sees it, enjoys it, and presupposes it, but they refuse to accept it and believe it.
It’s amazing - Just as I was in the middle of preparing this article, I met up with my sons old rugby coach as we watched our son’s practice rugby. We, in the most round-about way got onto the subject of spirits, evil, and religion. I was standing there asking myself “is this for real”? Here I was with a God given opportunity to throw my Christian points of view into a conversation with a man that is simply searching. He is ready to receive God and all that He presents because this man is faced with a world that is just too outstanding for him to comprehend, and he wants answers. He has realised that man – driven by evil is corrupt, and he has lost faith in the authorities and systems imposed by mankind. This guy has come to realise that there is something far greater, and that we [mankind] under our own steam are failing miserably to the point of self destruction.
How truly Outstanding is a God that can take a man of the world, and open his eyes to the extent of a complete new vision? Now that’s Outstanding!
