One day a 6-year girl was sitting in the classroom. The teacher was going to explain evolution to the children.
The teacher asked a little boy:
Teacher: Tommy do you see the tree out side?
Teacher: Tommy, do you see the grass out side?
Teacher: Go out side and look up and see if you can the sky.
Tommy: OK. (He returned a few minutes later) Yes, I saw the
Teacher: Did you see god?
Teacher: That’s my point. We can’t see God because he isn’t there.
A little girl spoke up and wanted to ask the boy some questions. Teacher agreed and she asked the boy:
Little girl: Tommy, do you see the tree outside?
Little girl: Tommy do you see the grass outside?
Tommy: Yessssss. (getting tired of the questions by this time)
Little girl: Did you see the sky?
Little girl: Tommy, do you see the teacher?
Little girl: Do you see her brain?
Little girl: Does that mean she doesn’t have one?
For we walk by faith, not by sight -- 2 Corinthians 5:7
Our God is finite in many ways. Here are just a few of them: Time, Grace, Love, and Power. Before I go any farther I would like to give the meaning of infinite. Webster says it means -- unlimited in time or space; without ends, limits, or bounds.
I.Our God is infinite in time. In Genesis 1:1 it says: In the beginning God, this tells us that He has always been. Revelations says that He is the Omega, this tells us that He will always be. Isn’t it wonderful to know that we are serving a God who is and will always be there when we need Him.
II. Our God is infinite in grace. This grace is for whosoever will receive it. In the Bible we can find numerous accounts of God’s infinite grace. Such as when the Israelites would turn their back against Him and go their own wicked way. His grace was shown at the time of the Flood, when He gave all the wicked people their last chance to give their hearts and lives back to Him. These are just two of the many accounts.

The Enemy of the world, Satan, was on the side of life’s road with a very large cage. The man coming towards him noticed that it was crammed full of people of every kind, young, old, from every race and nation. "Where did you get these people?" the man asked. "Oh, from all over the world," Satan replied. "I lure them with drinking, drugs, lust, lies, anger, hate, love of money, and all manner of things. I pretend I’m their friend, out to give them a good time, then when I’ve hooked them, into the cage they go. "And what are you going to do with them now?" asked the man.
Satan grinned. "I’m going to prod them, provoke them, get them to hate and destroy each other; I’ll stir up racial hatred, defiance of law and order; I’ll make people bored, lonely, dissatisfied, confused and restless. It’s easy. People will always listen to what I offer them and (what’s better) blame God for the outcome!" "And then what?" the man asked." Those who do not destroy themselves, I will destroy. None will escape me."
The man stepped forward. "Can I buy these people from you?" he asked.
Satan snarled, "Yes, but it will cost you your life."
So Jesus Christ, the Son of God, paid for your release, your freedom from Satan’s trap, with His own life, on the cross at Calvary. The door is open, and anyone, whom Satan has deceived and caged, can be set free.
Have you been set free, and has the infinite grace of God been applied to your heart and life? If not, today, would be the best time to let God’s infinite grace be applied to your heart and life.
III. Our God is infinite in love. John 3:16 & 17 says. " 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." Ephesians 3:17-19 says. " 17That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God."
