New Horizon Church: "The 'Other' God"
God is the only God, yet God is the “other” God. God wholly “other” than us. Nowhere is this more evident then God's ability to be inside & outside, big & small, “transcendent” & “immanent,” all at the same time. Which makes God worthy of our allegiance…

Today’s Message. ”The 'Other' God”

Scripture: Philippians 2:5-11

God is the only God, yet God is the “other” God. God wholly “other” than us. Nowhere is this more evident then God's ability to be inside & outside, big & small, “transcendent” & “immanent,” all at the same time. Which makes God worthy of our allegiance…
NOTES FOR TODAY'S MESSAGE.

1. What do we mean when we say God is “wholly other?” (Isaiah 46:9)

2. What do we mean when we say God is “transcendent?” (1 Kings 8:27, Isaiah 55:8-9, Matthew 11:25)

3. What do we mean when we say God is “immanent?” (Psalm 145:18, Proverbs 18:24, John 14:17)

4. What challenges do we face when we describe God as “transcendent” & “immanent?”

5. How does Jesus help us understand how God is both “transcendent” & “immanent?” (Isaiah 57:15, Matthew 1:23, Matthew 6:9)

6. What does God’s transcendence & immanence mean for our lives? (Philippians 2:1-5)

REFLECTING & RESPONDING.

Which of these descriptors of God resonate with you most: Transcendent or Immanent? Why? How do each of these reinforce and stretch your perception of God?

When are you tempted to believe God is not transcendent or immanent? How might your challenges, worries and life goals be different if God is Who He says He is?

In what ways does your perception of God affect the way you view & treat others? How does your growing perception of God humble you? Encourage you? Challenge you?
