How Big is God?

by Steve Ray on March 15, 2009

He is quite amazingly big, if you can say He actually has a size. Yesterday the grandkids and I turned over a log to find a nest of red ants. We thought about how big we were to the ants. The ants must be saying, “Oh no, giants just picked up our city!” Reminds me of old Twilight Zone episodes.

Compare you to the size of the earth, and the size of the earth to the sun, and the size of the sun to the next largest star and then . . .

Click here to see how small we are and why we should be very amazed that a God who can create all this, still loves us enough to send His Son to die for us and His Holy Spirit to indwell us. It is really quite amazing.

The Chair of Peter: Today We’re At the ROCK

by Steve Ray on March 15, 2009

Today we are visiting the ancient site of Caesarea Philippi in Northern Israel near the Lebanese border. It was here that Jesus said, “You are Rock (Peter) and on this rock I will build My Church!”

Here is an audio clip from my talk about the Chair of Peter.
