Ps. 90:2

Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

The testimony of Scripture reveals to us that God is the necessary eternal reality, self existent, and uncreated. He alone has created all things, and nothing has been created without Him. As creator, God is the sovereign ruler over all things. He is intimately involved in the ongoing affairs of his creation preserving, and governing all his creatures, and all their actions.

God is spirit, and unlike Man, is not limited by the bounds of flesh. As spirit, God cannot be constrained by any temporal or physical limitations, He knows all things, and has the power to accomplish all that He desires. He is immutable and always dwelling in holiness.

There is only one God who is worshipped as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, traditionally referred to as the Trinity. Although the Bible does not reference the Trinity by name, it does lay the foundation for its reality. Since the Holy Spirit of God, Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God, and God the Father have precisely the same nature, they, as one God, are worthy of the same worship, reverence and obedience.

God has revealed Himself in nature to all Man from the very beginning

Romans 1:20

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

God has also chosen to reveal Himself through His only Son Jesus Christ and through the Holy Scripture both of which are witnessed to by the Holy Spirit. Both Jesus Christ and the Holy Scriptures are a living testimony to God and the only decisive representation of God given to Man. God has revealed Himself through His personal name, Yahweh, and therefore we have the ability to worship a personal God who is known to us by the most intimate of relationships.

  1. Do you know Yahweh intimately?
  2. Have you given yourself over to Yahweh?
  3. Why not now?
