Patient, Omnipotent Creator
Maybe one of the most spectacular aspects of God’s holiness, His total Otherness, is that He interacts with us in such vast extremes, at once the God of the Angel-Armies, as Eugene Peterson described Him, or as a doting mother hen devotedly protecting her chicks, under her wings, from a storm, at once the one in gleaming-snow white with eyes of fire and a sword protruding out of his mouth, or the one tenderly and compassionately raising a widow’s son to life from his funeral bier. It is His sovereignty seen in His liberty to come to us as He will. One God, infinite deliveries. One Savior/Lover of our Souls, limitless means of intimacy.
