Question #1:
Who is God?


“I believe God is just everywhere in everything that we are and we see everyday.”

“God is supposedly a supernatural entity who created the universe and everything in it.”

“A being that is clearly more intelligent than us, and maybe even caused our existence.”

“I think God is everything; all inclusive.”

“To me God is Michelangelo’s, you know, Sistine Chapel guy. The big beard, muscular guy.”

“Well, I don’t know.”

Is really possible to know who God is, or is it just a matter of feeling? Or is God just some ambiguous life force? Or is God just who we make him to be?

The bible clearly states who God is.

He is the Eternal Creator.

The Bible says, “In the beginning God.” He has existed before everything. The Bible says in Revelation 1:8, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and ending, saith the Lord. He was not created, for he created everything.

He is the Holy and Righteous one.

The word holy is used more than any other word in the Bible to describe God. He is totally distinct and without error.

1 John 1:5 says, God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.

Its like ground zero of a thermonuclear explosion; a total absence of everything but light. God is completely free from sin; he is absolutely pure.

He is the All-knowing Judge.

Did you know that there is no event that takes God by surprise? Psalm 139 communicates that God hears every word we say, he knows every thought we have, and he sees our every action.

Proverbs 15:3 says the eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. He will never make an unjust accusation, but he will bring every sinful word deed or thought into account.

He is the Loving Savior.

This is exciting! God’s love for us is not based on our performance. It’s not based on us running around, doing a bunch of good things so that he likes us. No, God’s love is based on who He is. The Bible says in 1 John 4 that love is of God for God is love. Herein is love, not that we loved him, but that he loved us, and sent his son to be the propitiation for our sin. Love is because God is. And if God was not there, love would cease to exist.

So lets review.

God is the eternal creator, he’s also the holy and righteous one, he’s the all knowing judge, and he’s the loving savior. Knowing that there’s a God brings us to another question, and its question number two. How does God communicate himself to you?
