UPDATE: IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT GOD IS LIKE, LOOK AT JESUS

I want to update my post from the other day entitled "If you want to know what God is like, look at Jesus." I think my long list of characteristics of God that we see in Jesus are undoubtedly correct and would be agreed upon by conservative evangelicals and liberals. However, I don't think it fully captures the change in my thinking. In fact, I'm not really sure it can be adequately expressed in words. Especially in a blog post. I think that often, when God does things in our lives like that, maybe we can't put it into words exactly. No matter how hard we try, it just never quite comes out right.

If I am ever able to figure out how to truly express my thoughts and feelings on the matter, I will be sure to post it here because of what it has meant in my life, and maybe it can make a difference for somebody else. For now, though, I'm content to leave it as is.
