“I believe the God of the bible is the only true God— Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.”
Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature— have been clearly seen, being understood from what has ben made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20
One evening when my daughters’ family spent the night at our house, my granddaughter asked her mother, “Mommy, will you wake me up in the night morning when Nona gets up?” My daughter and I were confused until I realized she had made up an oxymoron to describe when I get up, which is usually before sun rise.
Oxymorons and paradoxes are fun! They are words or phrases with opposite meanings put together: “jumbo shrimp,” virtual reality,” clearly confused,” “busy doing nothing,” whether used in writing or speaking, they wake up your ears and make you think.
Paul gets our attention in a similar way in the verse above. if he were writing today, he might say God is “While sin does not allow us to see God in all his glory now, God does want you to know him. His invisible qualities glare at you through creation. And not only does he want you to know him, he wants to be with you. If you look, he’s hidden in plain sight!
