Who am I? Who is God?
I wanted to write a bit of commentary on the previous post. It is very closely connected with another post called Be. There is a delicate balance between knowing who I am and knowing who God is. If I spend too much time trying to understand myself I leave God out of my thinking. If I don't know my place as a sinner saved by grace, my concept of God is wrong. Calvin says you can never know God until you know yourself, and you can never know yourself until you know God. Think about it.
