In all honesty I think anyone reading this article would admit that God is many amazing things. Given that I don’t have all the time in the world I am unable to list them all. But here are a few facts about God that stuck out to me this week.
God is a living person.
God is not a “force” or just some higher power.
There is only one God.
Isaiah 45:5 clearly states “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me…” as well as Isaiah 46:9 “I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me.”
God is a spirit.
This statement is in no way a contradiction to the previous statement I made above. Although God is a living person, he doesn’t have a physical body like we have since God is all spirit. This is why we cannot see him, nor are we allowed to make images after him. We are also told in scripture that this is why we must worship Him in spirit. John 24:4 “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
God is glorious.
The glory of God is so bright we could not bear to look at Him, just like we cannot bear to look at the sun because of its fierce brightness. So imagine how God must look as He is much brighter than the sun. God said, “You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!” (Exodus 33:20).
Habakkuk 3:4 states “His brightness was like the light; rays flashed from his hand; and there he veiled his power.” and Ezekiel 10:4 says “Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD’S glory.”
God is light.
God is pure, perfect and without any sin. 1 John 1:5 states “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” God always does what is good and right.
God is love.
1 Corinthians 13 is the ultimate guide to what love really is. God is a perfect example of all of the characteristics described in 1 Corinthians 13.
