What is God?

This poem is based on "A Meditation on Question 4 of the Shorter Catechism" that my friend Jeanni led us through one Sunday morning at church - What is God? 

I have started reading through 1 Timothy and Paul cannot emphasise enough how important it is to have sound doctrine. Teaching false doctrine doesn't advance God's work.  It does nothing to transform the lives of believers.

What is God?

He is “I am”
Always
Unchanging in essence
Never ceasing to be
He is wisdom
Always
Marking every good path
Building houses on solid rock
He is power
Always
Laughing at impossibilities
Dismantling the storm
He is King
Always
Sceptre secure in hand
Increasing His government
He is love
Always
Laid down life
For His friends
He is truth
Always
Word in flesh dwelling
Sharp sword cleaving to core
He is “was, is and is to come”
Always
Without parallel in the universe
Everything bearing His fingerprint
Alpha and Omega and
Every letter in between
Now
Always
Yesterday, today, forever
Constant…


He is mine
