How Big is Your God?
October 23, 2015 • Habakkuk 3:1-16
Do you ever feel like you know and understand God? What happens then when you encounter a Bible passage that seems to contradict your picture? The preacher Fred Craddock once preached a sermon in which he lamented how small God seems to be in so many sermons.In too many sermons, Craddock said, preachers give the impression that they had walked all the way around God and took pictures. But this kind of God is not big enough to fit the God of the Bible, Craddock claimed.Our faith needs to have more size to it. Habakkuk would agree. In the song Habakkuk sings in the first part of his third chapter, the prophet confronts us with one powerfully big God.
