Step Towards Transformation

2-GOD

images (18)

God is far too great for us to fully understand. He has no beginning and He has no end. There is no place where His presence is not felt. The Bible asks in Job 11:7:
• Can you fathom the mysteries of God?
• “Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?”
• God lives in Heaven and He rules over the whole earth. The Bible tells us:
• This is what the Lord says: ‘Heaven is my throne and the earth is my foot stool..” (Isa 66:1).
• “God reigns over the nations: God is seated on his holy throne” (Ps 47:8).

In this study we are going to be looking at special truths about God. These are facts about God’s unchanging character. Through these you will understand more of what God is like. You will come to understand god and how He cares for you personally.

A.WHAT IS GOD LIKE?

  1. God Is The Creator Of Everything.
    You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.” (Neh 9:6).

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb”(Ps 139:13).

  1. God Is All-Powerful
    For who hath resisted his will? Hath not the potter power over the clay..? “(Rom 9:19-21).

“Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all” (1 Chr 29:11).

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, accordingly to his power that is at work within us” (Eph 3:20).

  1. God Is All-Knowing
    Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account” (Heb 4:13).

“..God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything” (1 Jn.3:20).

  1. God Is Holy
    “There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God” (1 Sam 2:2).
  2. God Is A Spirit
    “God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship in spirit and in truth”(John 4:24).
  3. God Is A Person You Can Know
    “Come near to God and he will come near to you…¶” (Jas 4:8).

“The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth”. (Ps 145:18).

  1. God Is A Loving Father

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are…” (1 Jn 3:1).

B.GOD IS TOO GREAT TO LIVE IN TEMPLES

“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earthy and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else…¶’For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’”. (Acts 17:24,25,28).

C.WE ARE:

  1. Created By God
    “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.“When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Ps 139:14-16).
  1. Owned By God
    “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body” (1 Cor 6: 19,20).
  2. Called To Worship God
    “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being” (Rev 4:11).

D.MAKE A DECISION

Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matt 22:37).
The Bible tells us about a man called Joshua. He was a great leader of the nation of Israel.

The people had been wandering for forty years in the wilderness, without a land of their own. Joshua, under God’s direction, led them in victory against the evil nations living in Canaan, and possessed their land for the homeless nation of Israel.

Joshua then challenged all the people to make a decision:

“Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSEHOLD, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD”(Josh 24:15).

The same challenge comes to each of us. Will you make the same commitment as Joshua this day?

MY COMMITMENT

This day I give my worship to the only true God of heaven and earth, and surrender my will, my life and possessions to Him. From this day I determine never to worship any other gods.

My worship is for Him only, and I will teach others the truths about God.
