God is Holy
by Audrey Christensen
What does it mean when we say something is holy? Maybe we mean “good,” but even that word has become distorted. (I think chocolate chip cookies are good.) There are other aspects of holiness that we should consider: awe, fear, purity, righteousness, perfection, set-apartness. After all of the characteristics of God that we’ve looked at the past several weeks, the natural conclusion must be that God is holy. After all, He created and sustains all things; He is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-present, all-wise.
The faithfulness of God
by Sarah Wooten Corinth Missionary Baptist Church.
When you think of the word faithful, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Many people think of a marriage, where one spouse remains faithful to the other. Or perhaps a friend that has stuck with you through thick and thin. But, what do we mean when we say that God is faithful?
The sovereign God, part 2
Last week, I talked about how the sovereign God rightfully and justly does as He pleases with His creation. He is in control of all things; not one particle is outside His control. To some angels, He bestowed the honor of continually praising Him.
The immutability of God
As we continue looking at God, we come to another attribute of God that is of necessity. When God is described as immutable, that means He is devoid of all change.
When we say God is omnipotent, we mean that God is all-powerful. We have already established that God is omniscient (all-knowing) and omnipresent (all-present).
