Dwelling in light unapproachable

At the end of September the Christadelphian Office published “The God we Worship” (by Brother Michael Storey), a devotional book of studies and exhortations considering our Heavenly Father.

An excerpt from The God we Worship by Brother Michael Storey

Not only is the Lord immortal (never dying and never capable of dying), He is also invisible, dwelling in light unapproachable. But God is only invisible and unapproachable to mortal man. No man has seen God; mere humans can only behold manifestations of His majesty and glory, as we shall consider later in our studies. For now, only the angels and His glorified Son can dwell before His glorious presence. We must wait, in faith, for the time when

“the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them” (Revelation 21:3).

This is the time when, by His grace, we shall

“be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Peter 1:4).

The Apostle John, in his first epistle, put it this way:

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” (1 John 3:2)

In the meantime, we must,

“by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life …” (Romans 2:7).
