Who He IS

I love this song...the other day I was trying to explain what I believe Jesus might do if He were on this earth today and it struck me again how amazing He is.  Who IS our God, really?  Who is He to you?
It seems I've imagined Him all of my life
As the wisest of all of mankind

But if God's holy wisdom seems foolish to men
He must have seemed out of His mind

For even His family said He was mad
And the priests said a demon's to blame
For God in the form of this angry young Man
Could not have seemed perfectly sane

For we in our foolishness thought we were wise
He played the fool and He opened our eyes
We in our weakness believed we were strong
He became helpless to show we were wrong

So we follow God's own fool
For only the foolish can tell

Believe the unbelievable
Come be a fool as well
--Michael Card, "God's Own Fool"

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
      Nor are your ways My ways,” says 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."
--Isaiah 55:8-9
