Q4 What is God?


Answer:

    ‎‎‎‎God is

  • a Spirit, (John 4:24)
  • ‎‎‎infinite, (Job 11:7–9)
  • ‎‎‎eternal, (Ps. 90:2)
  • ‎‎‎and unchangeable, (James 1:17)
  • ‎‎‎in his being, (Exod. 3:14)
  • ‎‎‎wisdom, (Ps. 147:5)
  • ‎‎‎power, (Rev. 4:8)
  • ‎‎‎holiness, (Rev. 15:4)
  • ‎‎‎justice,
  • ‎‎‎goodness,
  • ‎‎‎and truth. (Exod. 34:6–7)

‎For Further study:

  1. ‎What is meant by each word?
  2. ‎How is God infinite, etc.? (Time, space, wisdom, power, etc)
  3. ‎Make a distinction in your discussion about the characteristics of God (Spirit, Infinite, Eternal, Unchangeable) and the attributes (being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, truth).
    • Pair each characteristic together with an attribute for further study (e.g. How is God characteristic in His attribute?)
    • How is God infinite in his power?
    • How is God eternal in his power?
    • How is God unchangeable in his power?)
    • etc…
