We all have an internal mental image of God. But what we say we believe isn’t really what drives us, this internal image does formed maybe partly from Scripture but largely our life experiences. In past weeks we’ve seen, our image of God dictates our response to Him & defines our own self-image. This week we answer the question, how does all this relate us with others? This sermon is entitled, Clever Disguises, because the Lord wears clever disguises in life.
