Upon Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem, Messianic hopes are high and even those who hate Jesus are impressed with his popularity. But rather than announcing political ambitions, Jesus proclaims his intention to die. Some in the crowd reject his message outright and others believer but are afraid to say so.
God is omnipotent, which means he has unlimited power. The word used most often in the Bible to describe this quality is “almighty.” Unlike humans, Almighty God has the authority and the ability to do what he wants. He invites us to walk with him in a God-empowered life.
In the second sermon in a series about ways God is not like us, we consider God’s self-existence, eternality, self-sufficiency, and incomprehensibility. We are encouraged from Scripture to stop reaching for things unattainable to us, and to instead delight ourselves in the magnificence of God, and to see how these attributes are good news to us.
