Power of God
The Power of God
There are two words in Greek that express and translate as “power” in English: Dunamis and exousia.
I have often heard that in English we derive the word “Dynamite” from dunamis which is then used to express and give us understanding of the power of God. However, God’s power can never be understood from something that momentarily releases an explosive force and then quickly fades to nothing. Gods power is consistently and always the same, unlimited and constant expressed in the word omnipotent.
Oh, how often we demote God to the level of our own understanding, reducing Him down to the limit of our own experience.
Dunamis is an inherent power, a power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth.
Where as Exousia can be used to describe a power of choice and liberty as one pleases.
