God Is Absolutely Unique in His Greatness
Adventure 2: The Greatness of God
Can anyone else come even close to matching God's greatness?
No one can match God. He is infinitely greater than anyone else. 1 Timothy 1:17 – Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
This Truth Makes
God wants us to know that nobody even comes close to His perfect, awesome greatness. If anyone else were as great, then God would lose some of His glory. When we talk about God’s “glory,” we are talking about God’s honor and His excellent
Name (His reputation). In a very simple way, God’s glory refers to God’s fame. God is famous because no one else is as wonderful and powerful as He is.
Often, sports heroes are given glory and fame because they have special abilities and talents. But think about God’s special abilities! The talents of any sports hero are lesser than God’s abilities. Why is that? Because God is the One Who gives sports heroes any abilities they have (1 Corinthians 4:7).
Without God, there could be no talent. Nobody else deserves to be famous like God is famous – and God wants the glory He deserves. He makes sure He will be famous. Isaiah 42:8 – I am the LORD, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.
