The Godhead itself is an incomprehensible relationship. As much as we try to liken it to other things, it is not. It is unique and, in the scriptures, unexplained. That alone makes it unexplainable.
If we could truly understand God, then we wouldn’t worship Him. By “explaining” Him, we bring Him down to our level, and our level certainly is not worth worshipping. It is “reverence” masked by irreverence.
And we also have something not only unexplainable, but unthinkable:
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Phil 2:5-8 God became human.
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; Heb 2:14 He partook of flesh and blood.
In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and was God…And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:1, 14. God became flesh.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Heb 4:15. He was in all points tempted.
For God to become human should not just be amazing, it should be a staggering thought. If it has never taken your breath away and knocked you off your feet, figuratively anyway, you just don’t get it. In spite of yourself, you have absorbed too much denominational theology. You’ve spent too much time with Augustine of Hippo and his Reformation disciples. And that’s where we will finish next week.
