Thoughts on Thinking #1

God Is A Thinker

God Is A Thinker

When I teach at Bible Colleges, I will occasionally ask the students to finish the statement: “God is…” Their responses are often revealing.

Nowadays, most will immediately say, “…God is love…” (1 John 4:8), but hardly any will say, “…God is light…” (1 John 1:5), even though John’s first epistle contains both statements.

It seems strange to me that one attribute of God can become more fashionable than another.

However, in all my years of asking the question, no one has ever said, “God is a thinker”. Yet, the Bible makes it abundantly clear that that is what He is.

For instance, in the book of Isaiah, God declares, “…my thoughts are not your thoughts…” (Isaiah 55:8), and the prophet Amos wrote that the One who forms the mountains and creates the wind also, “…reveals His thoughts…” (Amos 4:13) to humanity.

Since we are made in the image of God, all the attributes of God should be foremost in our mind, as they determine our identity.

We are thinkers because He is a Thinker. But what sort of thinker are we?

What sort of thinker should we be?

What sort of thinker can we be?

I will leave those thoughts with you.
