No matter how great God is, if we don’t know Him personally through an intimate relationship and experience His power and glory in our lives, His greatness would not mean that much to us at all. By the way, His greatness can only be as relevant to us to the extent that we allow Him to unleash it in us. Since His greatness has already been revealed plainly to us, the thing that matters the most is how we choose to respond to it.
If anybody wants to know how great God is, the creation is something to consider. The creation of the heavens and the earth is a colossal demonstration of His greatness revealed to mankind. The creation itself bears witness about the greatness of God Almighty (Romans 1:20).
As Christians, one thing that we really need to be careful of is that it’s very easy for us to fall into the trap of trying to put ourselves ahead of God in the context of driving people’s attention to ourselves when doing the work of the Lord. The point is that the Christian life is a form of selfless life that’s rested upon glorifying God through Christ. Oftentimes, we’re trying to do the will of God while the intent of our hearts is set on trying to give impression to others with our performance. One thing we may not realize is that this type of mindset causes God to be taken out of the picture due to the fact that it becomes totally about us trying to do our best within our own human ability in order to get people’s attention.
