What is God like?
JOHN SHIRK – How would you describe God? Just about everyone who believes in Him has something to say on that question. Having a clear understanding of God helps to clarify His purpose for our lives. Here are some descriptions of God in the Bible:
God is the God of gods and Lord of Lords. God is greater than all other gods. God is merciful and forgiving. God is righteous. God is truthful. God is faithful. God is just. God is light. God is love. God is holy.
These are the ways that God leads us to spiritual growth: He leads us to become worshipers of Him when we recognize His supreme greatness. He also teaches us His ways, meaning that we learn to become more merciful and forgiving, and truthful and faithful and loving. If we want to get to know the heart of God, we can examine more closely the life of Jesus Christ. Hebrews 1:3 says, “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being…” And Jesus Himself said in John 14:31, “I do exactly what my Father has commanded me.”
With our eyes fixed on Jesus, He trains us to grow in godly character and more accurately reflect the attitude of Christ to the world.
That’s today’s Mission Statement for representing Jesus in the world today.
