"Could You Tell Me About God?"
Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 40:12-31

I want you to look at the first four words of Genesis 1:1. Many of you know them
already but, if you are not sure, I want you to get them in your mind and say them with
Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God...." One more time.
"In the beginning God...."
For 25 years Albania has been officially an atheistic country; no Bibles; no
churches; pastors put in jail; anyone who seeks to proselytize or share the gospel or
say the name of Jesus or God is put in jail, tortured; everything in the world to make
them say there is no God. And yet just a few months ago, Albania, like many other
Eastern European countries, dropped the bars and said, 'We are open to religion."
A Dutch missionary was standing on the street corner of a major city in Albania
and a 25-year-old Albanian tapped him on the shoulder. He turned around and this
young Albanian said to him, "Sir, could you explain God to me?" What if he had asked
you that question? What would you say? Could you explain God to me? Someone
has said that is really the most basic of all questions. It is the most fundamental of all.
Because what you say, either an affirmation or denial of who God is, determines all of
your plans, your purposes, your realities, your meaning for life--either an affirmation
that there is a God or a denial that there is a God. So it is the most important of all
questions. Could you explain God to me?
Certainly this preacher cannot in 30 minutes or in a lifetime explain God. But in
these next minutes maybe just a little window down into our souls from the Word of God
will give us a grasp on who God is.
There has got to be an introduction, doesn't there? Is there a God? People ask
the question. You probably have asked it sometime even after you became a believer.
