He Is the Same God

The transcendent and intimate God of Genesis 1 and 2 and the same God who walks alone and handpicks Perez to carry the promise; the same God who cares for Rahab, provides for Ruth, and values all the undervalued women who help the sea part in two; yes, the God who camps in a tent for hundreds of years, who uses a tongue-tied murderer and a music-writing murderer and a Philistine-loving murderer to build a kingdom.  He’s the same God who rescues Ezekiel’s abandoned child and purchases Hosea’s whore – the same God who hangs on a tree with a spike driven right through each of His tatooed hands.
