THE ATTRIBUTES OF GOD
God Is Spirit. Jesus taught that “God is Spirit” (John 4:24). God has not body, no physical or measurable form. Thus, God is invisible. He became visible in human form in the person of Jesus Christ, but His essence is invisible.
God Is Changeless. Progress and change may characterize some of His works, but God Himself remains unchanged (Heb 1:12). He does not change; otherwise, He would not be perfect. Thus, what we know of God can be known with certainty. He is not different from one time to another.
God is All Powerful. God’s power is unlimited. He can do anything that is not inconsistent with His nature, character, and purpose (Gen. 17:1; 18:14). The only limitations on God’s power are imposed by Himself (Gen. 18:25). “Impossible” is not in God’s vocabulary. God creates and sustains of things; yet He never grows weary (Is. 40:27-31).
God Is All Knowing. God possesses all knowledge (Job 38:39; Rom. 11:33-36). Because God is everywhere at one and the same time, He knows everything simultaneously. That God has the power to know the thoughts and motives of every heart is evident from any Scripture passages, notably John 37:16, Psalm 147:5, and Hebrews 3:13.
God Is Everywhere. God is not confirmed to any part of the universe but is present in all His power at every point in space and every moment in time (Ps. 139:7-12). Thus, God does not belong to any one nation or generation. He is the God of all the earth (Gen. 18:25).
God Is Eternal. Eternity refers to God’s relation to time. Past, present and future are known equally to Him (2 Pet. 3:8; Rev. 1:8). Time is like a parade that man sees only a segment at a time. But God sees time in its entirety.
The second group of attributes is called moral attributes. These refer to God’s character, His essential nature.
God Is Holy. The word holy comes from a rood word that means “to separate.” Thus, it refers to God as separated from or exalted above other things (Is. 6:1-3). Holiness refers to God’s moral excellence. Being holy, God demands holiness in His own children. And what He demands, He supplies. Holiness is God’s gift that we receive by faith through His Son, Jesus Christ (Eph. 4:24).
God Is Righteous. Righteousness applied to God refers to His affirmation of what is right as opposed to that is wrong. The righteousness of God refers to His moral laws laid down to guide the conduct of humankind, as in the Ten Commandment. Righteousness also refers to God’s administration of justice. He brings punishment upon the disobedient (Gen 18:25; Deut. 32:4; Rom. 2:6-16). Finally, God’s righteousness is redemptive. In the Book of Romans the righteousness of God refers to God declaring the believer to be in a state of righteousness as though he had never been unrighteous (Rom. 1:16-17; 3:24-26). This is possible because of the sacrificial death of Jesus on our behalf.
God Is Love. Love is the essential, self-giving nature of God. God’s love for man seeks to awaken a response love of man for God. Divine love runs like a golden threat through the entire Bible. Nature is eloquent with the skill, wisdom, and power of God. Only in the Bible, however, do we discover God giving Himself and all He possesses to His creatures, in order to win their response and to possess them for Himself. God loved and gave; he loved and sought – just as a shepherd seeks his sheep. God loved and suffered, providing His love by giving His all on the cross for the redemption of humanity. God, in His love, wills good for all His creatures (Gen. 1:31; Ps. 145;9; Mark 10:18).
God Is Truth. All truth, whether natural, physical, or religious, is grounded in God. Thus, any seemingly inconsistent teaching between natural an physical sciences and God’s revelation of Himself is more apparent than real. Truth is magnified in an absolute way through God’s revelation.
God Is Wisdom. God’s wisdom is revealed in His doing the best thing in the best way, at the best time for the best purpose.
Some people have knowledge, but little wisdom, while the most wise at times have little knowledge. But God is “the only wise God" (1 Tim 1:17). In creation, history, human lives, redemption, and Christ, His diving wisdom is revealed. Man, lacking wisdom, can claim God’s wisdom simply by asking (1 Kin. 3:9; Jam. 1:5). The believer’s understanding of God continues to increase throughout his earthly pilgrimage. It will finally be complete in eternity when he stands in the presence of God.
