Lately I've been curious about the Bible. To be honest, I've never read it. I mean I've read the first few pages about God creating the moon and stars, but that's as far as I got.
So when I got the opportunity to read None Like Him: 10 Ways God is Different From Us by Jen Wilkin, I was curious to know more.
None Like Him is a paperback book consisting of a little over 150 easy to read pages. It contains 10 chapters:
- Infinite: The God of No Limits
- Incomprehensible: The God of Infinite Mystery
- Self-Existent: The God of Infinite Creativity
- Self-Sufficient: The God of Infinite Provision
- Eternal: The God of Infinite Days
- Immutable: The God of Infinite Sameness
- Omnipresent: The God of Infinite Place
- Omniscient: The God of Infinite Knowledge
- Omnipotent: The God of Infinite Power
- Sovereign: The God of Infinite Rule
At the back of the book there is:
- Conclusion: Fearful and Wonderful
- Notes about some of the chapters
- Scripture Index
- 10 or some pages of blank pages to write your personal reflections
After each chapter there are:
- Verses for Meditation
- Questions for Reflection
Verses for Meditation is just that, verses from the Bible that goes along with that chapter. Questions for Reflection are again just that, questions that make you think about what you think and how you felt about that chapter. As an example, from the chapter Omniscient, one of the questions ask “What kind of knowledge do you crave the most? How can you discern whether your hunger for it is healthy or unhealthy?” And Pray gives you a starting point of what to pray about pertaining to the chapter.
So I would probably read one chapter a day and then that would give you time to reflect and really think about the questions. Then you have that whole day to think about the Pray starting point.
The book is basically in my opinion mostly about how God knows everything about us, but we will never truly know everything about him, there's just too much!
He is everything, He is infinite, there's no end to his love and devotion.
None Like Him is also about how God forgives everything we do, but we as humans are always judging each other, we are always sizing people up. It also talks about how we sometimes put everything before God, but God should always come first.
None Like Him: 10 Ways God Is Different From Us (and why that’s a good thing)
Author: Jill Wilkin
Paperback: 163 pages
God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign, infinite, and incomprehensible.
And that's a good thing.
Our limitations are by design. We were never meant to be God. But at the root of every sin is our rebellious desire to possess attributes that belong to God alone.
Calling us to embrace our limits as a means of glorifying God's limitless power, Jen Wilkin invites us to celebrate the freedom that comes when we rest in letting God be God.
