God’s Omnipresence

Sermon On The
Sunday after the Ascension 2014
We better appreciate the story of today’s Gospel with historical knowledge about the Sea of Galilee, the storms which were common there, and the location and culture of the Decapolis.  God is everywhere, not in the sense that the pantheists believe, but according to His immensity.  He is everywhere in three ways: by His knowledge, by His power, and by His essence.  When we speak of the Essence of God we must remember that the word “essence” is derived from the word “esse,” meaning “to be.”
