What Do Christians Think About God The Father?


READ VERSES:

Genesis 1:1

1 Chronicles 29:10-13;

Isaiah 44:6-8;

John 4:21-24;

1 John 4:10-16


In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. - Genesis 1:1

10 Therefore David blessed the Lord in the presence of all the assembly. And David said: “Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever. 11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. 12 Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. 13 And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name. - 1 Chronicles 29:10-13

Trying to define what God is like can get complicated. Some people think of God as "the force" from Star Wars, with both a good side and a dark side. Others picture God as a celestial highway patrolman setting up speed traps to capture people. Some believe the universe is God, and still others believe themselves to be gods. When we talk about God, what kind of God are we talking about?


Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god. Who is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and set it before me, since I appointed an ancient people. Let them declare what is to come, and what will happen. Fear not, nor be afraid; have I not told you from of old and declared it? And you are my witnesses! Is there a God besides me? There is no Rock; I know not any.” - Isaiah 44:6-8

What do Christians believe about God? The answer may seem like trying to fit an ocean into a thimble, because there's so much that can be said about God, so in this lesson we will discuss just five key truths that are critical to the Christian concept of God.


21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” - John 4:21-24

10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.- 1 John 4:10-16

PRAYER: Blessed Father, your ways are infinite and your nature is far beyond my comprehension. Lord, I recognize how mighty are your ways and how perfect is your love. Abba, thank you for making me part of your glorious creation and allowing me (mankind) to exist to marvel this amazing creation. As we seek to know you through your word and through your creation, Lord, please keep us close to you. Let us deter from your truth, instead allow us to see your truth. In thy holy name, AMEN.


GOD BLESS YOU.
