Who Is God?


What is God like and what does He expect of you?

Most people have their own distinctive opinions of a Supreme Being. But where do these impressions come from? Many are simply reflections of how people perceive God. As a consequence the word God has come to embody a spectrum of meanings, many of them quite foreign to the Bible.

God reveals Himself to mankind through His Word. The Bible is a book about God and His relationship with human beings. Where do you fit in His plan? The Scriptures contain a long history of God’s revelation of Himself to man—from Adam to Moses down through the apostles and the early Church.

In contrast to many human assumptions, the Bible communicates a true picture of God.

The Bible reveals what God is like, what He has done and what He expects of us. It tells us why we are here and reveals His little-understood plan for His creation. This handbook of basic knowledge is fundamentally different from any other source of information. It is genuinely unique because it contains, in many ways, the very signature of the Almighty.

One of the most fundamental principles to keep in mind regarding proper understanding of God’s Word is simply this: The Bible interprets the Bible. We often must look elsewhere in the Scriptures to see more light regarding the meaning of a particular passage. The New Testament sheds much light on the Old, and vice versa.

Who was the God of the Old Testament? The fact is, Jesus Christ is the “I AM” of the Bible. He was the guiding Rock who was with the children of Israel in the wilderness when they left Egypt (see Deuteronomy 32:4).

The fact that the word Trinity appears nowhere in the Bible also gives us reason to reflect. We must not cling to long-held religious traditions if they contradict the Scriptures.

In any discussion about who and what God is, we must not lose sight of the most important truth about God—that God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son are beings of infinite love.
