Episode Summary

In this episode we examine the fact that God is infinite. Everything in life is measurable. We can measure weight, time, temperature, length. But God cannot be measured. His understanding has no number. If something is beyond measure, it is necessarily infinite. Listen as Jen and I discuss God's infinite and boundless character and how that makes a difference in our lives today. 

Topics We Discussed in this Episode

●     [6:44]         One of the most common ways we sometimes describe God is by describing Him according to what He is not.

●     [7:56]         If something is beyond measure, it is necessarily infinite. And this is one of God’s attributes.  

●     [11:20]       Since God is timeless, He does not experience a succession of moments like we do.

●     [13:18]       God works within time as we know, but He is not limited by time as we know it.

●     [17:30]       “What would my limitations look like if I spent more time, more energy, more effort on the one thing that is really the only lasting thing?”

Resources We Mentioned in the Show

●     Jeff referred to Wayne Grudem’s work titled Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine.

●     Psalm 147:5

●     Psalm 90:2
