The Great Questions of Life | What is the truth about God?

What is the truth about god? [Part 1] [Part 2] [Part 3] [part 4]

What Is God Like?

To know about God is very important--eternal life depends upon it. But, what is God like? What is His nature? What are the attributes of His character?

God is an Infinite, Eternal Spirit

God is not limited by time, space, or natural laws as we are. He has always existed and always will. He is everywhere. He knows everything and can do anything.

God is Three Persons in One

Some people think of God as an impersonal force that controls the universe, or as an influence for good. We know that He is a Person because He thinks, feels, and acts. In fact, the Bible teaches that God is three Persons in one, a triune God. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are just the same in nature, power, and purpose. They work together in perfect harmony as one Person--one God.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
(Bible, Matthew 28:19)

God is Love

God is love--love is His nature. He loves everyone. He loves you and wants to give you what is best for you in life. Then He wants you to live with him in His wonderful home in heaven.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
(Bible, 1 John 4:8)

God is Perfect

God is completely good, pure, truthful, and right in all He does. He is generous and kind.

God is Just

God is a righteous judge. This means that He always does what is right. Because He loves everyone, He has made a way for them to know Him through Jesus Christ. He rewards those who accept Jesus by giving them eternal life. Those who reject Jesus and follow Satan receive the punishment God intended for Satan. Through Jesus, He wants to save us from sin and all of its effects. But if we won't let Him, He will allow us to feel the evil results of our wrong actions.

God Knows Everything

God knows the past, present, and future. He sees, hears, and understands everything that happens. He knows your thoughts and why you do what you do. God knows what is best for you and wants to help you make the right choices.

God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.
(Bible, 1 John 3:20)

God Can Do Anything

The Creator has built into His world certain patterns that we call the laws of nature. Everything functions according to these patterns. God is above these natural laws and is not bound by them. He does supernatural works called miracles, things that are beyond the power of man or nature. Jesus did many miracles when He was on earth. He healed the sick, raised the dead, and changed lives. He is still the Great Physician and enjoys making us well in both body and soul.

Jesus looked at them and said, 'With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'
(Bible, Matthew 19:26)
