How great thou art: Mickey Connolly
To comtemplate what God is like will be life changing. Primary purpose of series is to create and instill wonder and awe in God.
7 WAYS GOD IS NOT LIKE US
1) GOD IS FULLY SPIRIT. As fully spirit there is no way God can be formed into a statue or anything like it.
2) GOD IS PERSONAL
If he was not personal the bible would not be as relatable and easy to be understood. God giving us the bible is a form of him being personal!
3) GOD IS TRIUNE
"one in essence but, three in being."
4) GOD IS ETERNAL
God has existed eternally and all that exists, exists through him. We view all things through a lens of time. He has always been and always will be.
5) GOD IS SELF EXISTENT
God is not caused by anything else. God is eternally present; He is the only thing that has and will ever be eternally presentt
6) GOD IS SELF-SUFFICIENT
He does not depend on anyone or anything. All God does he does by choice. There is nothing in God's creation that he gains from. Acts17:25.
7) GOD IS INFINITE
He is complete and perfect. His greatness is unsearchable and none can fathom. We are finite and God is infinite. In heaven we will constanly be learning things about God. Also, there is no end to his attributes!
HOW SHOULD WE RESPOND TO THIS 7 THINGS
1) To humble us. We need to comtemplate how lowly we really are compared to God's infinite majesty. "I will never be like God."
2) Trusting in him supremely. We begin to understand that everything God has commanded for our lives is the absolute best thing for us.
3) To give God unreserved worship.
