    Is is possible to get just a little bit of God?

    The meal I'm sitting down to looks like a little bit of heaven. 🙂

    To all my US friends, Happy Thanksgiving.

    I thought you could only get a little bit of God. Isn't he infinite?

    Which is a point I'd like to entertain, since God is infinite how does that pan
    out? Is there a little piece of God where God is not paying any attention to
    at any point in time, or does not have full power, or control over? Does
    infinite only mean how large or does it also mean that He is complete every
    where at once, so that He can and does give all things His complete
    undistracted attention to at once, and can also if He chooses deploy all His
    might and power to at once, so that He can and does work all things out
    towards His ends as He sees fit?

    Thank you very much.

    Thanksgiving is about thanking God for our blessings. To me that means it could be an international holiday shared by all.

    Except atheists of course. 😉

    I'm not sure.

    In Christ is the fullness of the Godhead bodily. We get all of Christ when we believe and trust in Him. So maybe we get all of God in that sense. But certainly God will continue to show us the depth of His grace throughout eternity.

    Our understanding of God will be an eternal learning process no doubt about
    it in my opinion. My question has more to do with is it possible to only get
    a little bit of God without getting all of God? I can get a piece of pie, what
    I don't eat will remain outside of me, but when I get God don't I get all of God
    as does everyone who really trully gets a relationship with God?

    Well we know at least on an physical earthly level he loves us all.


    Matthew 5:45 (New International Version, ©2010)

    45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

    Yeah, but in the non-physical, other-wordly levels he's a real prick, eh? 🙂

    Good question. Tough!!
    First of all " a bit of God" suggests that "God"had been divided in some way, which we know inherintly cant be so, as God is a whole .
    Having said that, there a many interpretations of "God", and in a non-literal, metaphoric way , I say "yes". It is possible to get just a little bit of God.


    BTW-I am keen to know where you are going with this, or if you are just throwing it out there to see how people interpret it.

    Biblically we are taught that God desires us to seek him. As a result, my guess is that we limit ourselves, not the other way around.

    I think the answer is no, you get God not part of God.
    I am looking forward to seeing how others view this question too.
