The Opposite of God

This weekend I am leading worship for the Spiritual Breakthrough Retreat at APC. Pastor Jeff is talking about the power of God over the powers of darkness. I loved this illustration:

  • The opposite of black is… white
  • The opposite of night is… day
  • The opposite of bad is… good
  • The opposite of God is…?

For the last point we naturally say, “the devil”. Jeff taught us that this is not true. The opposite of the devil is Michael or Gabriel, who are angels. There is no opposite to God because there is only one true God.

That leads me to declare and appreciate this truth even more – “If God is for us, who can be against us” (Romans 8:31).

How’s that for perspective?
