Who Is God?

God is our creator.  We did not get here by ourselves.  Neither did we evolve from lower forms of life.  We were created in the image of God.

Our Creator is near to each of us.  He is never very far away.  Yet we have put up a wall between Him and ourselves by our self-seeking.  We have plunged ourselves into darkness by turning away from Him to live according to our own hopes and desires.  This is our sin.

Yet God is merciful.  He took on human flesh and lived as Jesus of Nazareth.  He was kind to the downhearted and generous with the poor.  He taught the truth about life and healed those who were sick.  For all His kindness, He was rejected and crucified by the people of His time.  Nonetheless, He was raised from the dead after three days and He ascended into glory in heaven. 

This Jesus Christ is God.  There is no other.

  1. Hello there. I find the subject of the divinity of Jesus very interesting. To the horror of most people I know, I have a hard time buying into the trinity idea. My thought process runs like this:
    Much Like God used to dwell in the Tabernacle (not ALL of him, I would imagine it was only part of him), so he dwelled in our Savior Jesus. This could make Jesus “semi-divine”, sort of like a “prince to a king” relationship between him and the Father. Maybe “partial divinity” is a better word? Since so few believe like I do, I have a hard time coming up with real academic ammo to back this up. Maybe that should tell me something.
    I am not saying I am right and you are wrong, I am just saying what I think. Your thoughts?

  2. Hi, Mike Gantt,
    The idea of three beings in one is really hard to understand. We are used to things being concrete or where we can touch them. To believe this takes faith and to understand it more takes study, possibly. I don’t know if anybody can fully understand it.

    1. I see two issues here: 1) the nature of faith and 2) the nature of God.

      1) As for faith, it is the conviction of things we cannot see. It is not natural for adults to trust. Therefore, we have to remember what childhood is like and be childlike before God. If we do so, we can find faith a practical way to live. Consider that God is everywhere, sees every thought of your heart, and that all you have to do is please Him with the way you live. It may not be easy, but it is simple.

      2) As for God’s nature, I find it impractical to conceive of God as three persons. The Bible is clear that we should obey Christ. Therefore, I focus on Jesus Christ, resurrected from the dead. He is the God I serve. He is the invisible one who is everywhere, sees every thought of my heart, and that I seek to please with the way I live. The more I do this, the better I feel in my heart.
