What Is God?

My friend Jeanni shared this mediation with our fellowship last Sunday.

What is God?


1)    God is a spirit – infinite, eternal and unchangeable in His Being


I am who I am and what I am – this is My Name forever.

Ex. 3:14

Never and nowhere will God cease to be: never and nowhere will God change.


2)    God is a spirit – infinite, eternal and unchangeable in His Wisdom.

…and the wisdom from above is first of all pure; then it is peace-loving, considerate and gentle; reasonable, full of compassion and good fruits;  it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial, steadfast and sincere.

Jas. 3:17

Never and nowhere will God cease to be: never and nowhere will God change.


3)    God is a spirit – infinite, eternal and unchangeable in His Power.

You are the One,
O Lord my God, who covers Yourself with light as with a garment,
who stretches out the heavens like a tent;
who lays the beams of the upper room of His abode above the firmament,
who makes the clouds His chariot,
who walks on the wings of the wind.

Ps. 104:2-3

Never and nowhere will God cease to be: never and nowhere will God change.

 

4)    God is a spirit – infinite, eternal and unchangeable in His Holiness.

Who among the gods is like You, O Lord?
Who is like You –
majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?

Ex. 15:11

Day and night they never stop saying,
”Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God
Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.”

Rev. 4:8

Never and nowhere will God cease to be: never and nowhere will God change.


5)    God is a spirit – infinite, eternal and unchangeable in His Justice.

The Lord reigns forever;
He has established His throne for judgement.
He will judge the world in righteousness;
He will govern the peoples with justice.

Ps. 9:7-8

Never and nowhere will God cease to be: never and nowhere will God change.


6)    God is a spirit – infinite, eternal and unchangeable in His Goodness.

One generation will commend Your works to another;
they will tell of Your mighty acts.
They will celebrate Your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of Your righteousness.
The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and rich in love.

Ps. 145:4, 7-8

Never and nowhere will God cease to be: never and nowhere will God change.


7)    God is a spirit – infinite, eternal and unchangeable in His Truth.

The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.
We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only,
who camefrom the Father,
full of grace and truth.

Jn. 1:14

Never and nowhere will God cease to be: never and nowhere will God change.





As it was in the Beginning,
Is now,
And ever will be,
Amen
