Infinite

My Soul is thirsting for God the living God
The Stream of life, the river, the constant waters
Our hope, our refreshing, the infinite, reality
How can I approach to Him and drink
One who is limited and finite, an earthen vessel
Except He who is infinite dwells in me

How can I touch Him, the consuming fire?
How can I see His face and live?
If I touch Him I would be consumed in an instant
If I see His face My heart would fail in awe
Yet he took bodily form, in the form of His Son
God, who is infinite, dwelling in flesh

The words which compare Him to our limitations
Everlasting, Unbounded, Unchangeable, Perfect
Almighty, Unfathomable, Uncompromising, Timeless
All the things I am not
Yet through the blood of Christ, the blood of the new covenant
God who is infinite dwells in me
So if we have God in our lives- the infinity- what does that do to us?

NOTES:
How many words we use to describe God compare to our limitations

Everlasting- he wont deteriorate with time, does not need preservative- we do
Unbounded- He isn't limited by boundaries- we are
Unchangeable- He doesn't change like the seasons or the weather- we do
Perfect- with no flaws- we have many flaws
Timeless- without beginning or end, past, present and future do not exist, they do for us
Almighty- the greatest might there is- there is none stronger, we have limited strength
Unfathomable- Deeper than we could ever know, a fathom being as wide as we can grasp with out stretched arms
He is infinite unbounded unchangeable, perfect
