Who Is God?

god-594709_1280

Recently I was having a conversation with somebody who has walked with the Lord for over 70 years. He shared how he had recently been asked by a fellow in Albania, one of the greatest and most important questions of all time…”Who is God?”

It got me thinking of how would I answer that question? And what would my response say of me and my relationship with Him?

Well, I believe I would say something like this …

God is the air that you breathe.

God is the reason you have breath in your lungs, it is His breath.

God is the purpose of existence.

God is your purpose.

God is the Creator of everything that has been created.

God is revealed in creation, His hidden qualities are seen in nature.

God is love.

God is a community, a community of three – God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.

God is the Father of Compassion.

God is the God of all comfort.

God is a father to the fatherless.

God is holiness.

God is justice.

God is Spirit.

God is good.

God is sovereign over all realms.

God is eternal.

God is outside and inside of time, time is held in His hands.

God is always.

God is the “I Am”.

God is the beginning and the end.

This exercise reminded me that I’d recently heard a brother say that God had been revealing to him, what is not God. So I got to thinking…..

God is not religious.

God is not a feeling.

God is not a concept.

God is not an ideal.

God is not a crutch.

God is not limited to man’s imagination.

God is not without mercy.

God is not a cranky old man.

God is not a man.

God is not for only a few.

God is not moody.

God is not easily angered.

God is not unkind.

God is not impatient.

God is not nostalgic.

God is not sentimental.

God is not weak.

God is not limited.

God is not hatred.

God is not dead.

So, how would you describe who God is and who God is not?
