YET ANOTHER JOHN STOTT QUOTE. Instinctively we know that we cannot box God up in any conceptual framework of our own devising, and that if we think we have succeeded in doing so, then what we have in our box is not God. Our little minds cannot conceive him, let alone contain him. '"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways" declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts"' (Is. 55:8-9). From "Life in Christ" (Eastbourne: Kingsway, 1991), p. 10.
We haven't had a John Stott quote in a while and I just felt we needed one. Don't try to make God too small. He might feel the need to show you how great He is.
