We could say more but could never say enough;
Let the final word be: 'He is the all.' ...
Awesome is the Lord and very great,
And marvelous is his power.
Glorify the Lord and exalt him as much as you can,
For he surpasses even that.
- Sirach (Old Testament Apocrypha) 43:27, 29-30

A Note to My Readers -
I've decided to remove my Sunday posts from the weekly cycle. Although I hope they've been of benefit to some of you, they are necessarily secondary to my regular work of sermon preparation each week. I've found that having that extra post to write simply added to the burden of my work. For those readers who would still like access to my weekly work in Scriptural exposition, I would ask them to access the podcasts of my sermons (available through a link in the sidebar), since that remains the primary form of my Bible teaching each week.
