Understand Who God Is

God is the beginning of all things (Gen. 1:1)

  • God is the Creator, Sustainer, and Ruler of all things.
  • All creation reflects His majestic power and glory (Ps. 19:1)
  • As Creator, God alone is worthy of the praise and worship of His creation (Rev. 4:11)

God, our Creator, is a God of holiness and love (Rev. 4:8)

  • God’s holiness reveals that He is completely unique and separate from His creation.
  • God is majestic, glorious, and perfect in every way (Ps. 8:1)
  • The slightest sin or imperfection cannot dwell in His Holy presence (Hab. 1:13)
  • God is righteous and just in His judgments (Ps. 7:11-12; 11:7; Isa. 5:16)
  • God’s love is just as great as His holiness and might.
  • God’s love is demonstrated by His care for His creation
  • It is also demonstrated by His gracious disposition and compassion toward us (Titus 3:4)
  • In His great love, God created human beings to reflect His power and glory—we are the pinnacle of His creation (Ps. 8:4-6)
  • We have been created in the image of God Himself (Gen. 1:27)
  • Because God is our loving Creator and Ruler, we are responsible to love, worship, and obey Him alone.
  • Since He created us, He has the right to lay His claim on our lives (Matt. 4:10; 22:37-38)
  • So, why do we not reflect God’s glory and obey Him as we should?
