What is God like?

How can we presume to answer that question when David said of Him, " Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable" (Psalm 145:3)

Our God can never be fully understood, but His Word does give us some insight into the vast dimension of His character. As believers we can anticipate an eternity of discovering new things about Him.

Because there is no way to comprehend the vast depth of our holy God, we are at risk of conjuring up in our minds what we want Him to be. This gives us a distorted image of God. 

We can only begin to know God by the revelation of His Word. Knowing God and knowing that He is perfect in every one of His attributes is imperative to maturing in the Christian faith.

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."

(Proverbs 9:10)

Monthly Manna : What is God like?

 

Then the Lord passed by him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth, who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished"

Exodus 34:7-7
