What You See is What You Get

And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ”

Exodus 3:14

This week we will be looking at the word that one of our elders Craig Galloway shared on Sunday entitled ‘What You See is What You Get’.

Firstly, Craig highlighted the importance of having a revelation of the greatness of God. It is not about us! It’s about who our God is. He is so much greater than we could ever hope to understand, and yet He chooses to love us with all our faults. This change of perspective can shift the way we live our lives.

Secondly, we need a revelation of Jesus. He was not just a historical figure and He is not just our friend. He is the Son of the living God. His teachings are not just good advice or a truth for some people. His words are the truth and we need to treat them as such.

Finally, Craig asked us to ponder our response to this understanding of who God is. Here are some questions to help you think it over:

  • What does it look like for you to cut out all the other voices and focus solely on what God is saying?
  • We often place limitations on God in order to help us comprehend Him. How can you remove those limitations and allow the greatness of God to impact your life?
  • How will you respond to society’s claims about the truth that go against our understanding of God as the ‘I am’?
