What is God Like?

It is impossible to truly know and love God without first understanding who and what He is, and who and what He is not. We cannot carry out His good, pleasing and perfect will unless our view of Him is based solidly on Scripture.

God’s characteristics are made clear throughout the Bible: Among many other things, He is Creator, Judge and Savior. He is omnipotent, omniscient (Romans 16:27) and omnipresent (Psalm 139:8). He is just and merciful (Deuteronomy 4:31), and slow to anger (Numbers 14:18). Everything about Him is holy, true and eternal.

We must also understand His nature. This includes the Trinity, the Godhead three-in-one: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each exists as a separate person, but each is also wholly God; neither is less or more than the other.

Knowing God’s true nature not only significantly increases our reverence for Him, it greatly decreases our dependence on our own power and strength.  The better we understand Who He really is, the easier it is to trust and rely upon Him.
