Does God seem far from you today? Is He incomprehensible, unapproachable, and unknowable? In one sense, God came near in the person of Jesus Christ. But in another sense, God is far away from us and always will be.
Transcendence is the word theologians use to describe the farness of God. A popular worship chorus captures the idea. Our God is greater. Our God is stronger. God You are higher than any other.
Isaiah chapter 55 and verses 8-9 say, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
