Knowing the Unknowable

God is beyond our imaginations, bigger than our understanding and deeper than our intellect. If we could grasp the fullness of God we would, perhaps, be God. God is incomprehensible.

A Mystery.

An enigma.

Our language does not do God justice. Our words fail to decribe him. He is 'other', 'different', 'set apart', 'holy'.

Tozer states that Christians are 'yearning to know what cannot be known.'
This phrase is striking. It speaks of an almost desperate longing to discover something that is beyond discovery.

And yet the mystery becomes more mysterious. The unknowable chooses to make himself known. The hidden chooses to reveal himself. The Word that existed in the beginning takes on flesh. God became human so that humanity could know God.
