What is God Like? (part 2 of 2)

John 4:21-24

Introduction

Last week, we looked at the first part of What is God Like?

We looked at the first 7 of 13 characteristics or character traits of What God is like

We saw that…

1. GOD IS PERSONAL

• Intelligence – several verses…just a couple here

• Emotions

• Self-determining will

2. GOD WAS FLESH

• He knew what it was like to live like a man…struggles of the flesh

3. GOD IS SPIRIT

• Jesus taught us that God cannot be contained or limited by physical forms or buildings

4. GOD IS ETERNAL

• It is mind boggling to think that God has always existed

5. GOD IS ALL-KNOWING – (Omniscient)

• He knows all things past, present, and future

• His knowledge is not hindered by locked doors, darkness, or distant places

6. GOD IS ALL-POWERFUL – (Omnipotent)

• He can do anything He chooses to do

• No army, no government, or civilization can frustrate His purposes

7. GOD IS PRESENT EVERYWHERE – (Omnipresent)

• No matter where you go in the Universe…God is there

This morning, we will look at the last 6 of the character traits of God so that we can truly have a better understanding of Him when we worship Him

Pray

Trans: The next character trait about what God is like is that…

8. GOD IS SOVEREIGN

The word SOVEREIGN means “independent; self-governing; and not ruled by any other entity”

Regardless of the current situation; regardless of the turmoil, confusion or chaos in our world

The God we worship is One who does all things according to His own will and purpose…He is independent and not ruled by any other entity

• Isa 46:10 I declare the end from the beginning, and from long ago what is not yet done, saying: My plan will take place,and I will do all My will.

• Dan 4:35 All the inhabitants of the earth are counted as nothing, and He does what He wants with the army of heaven and the inhabitants of the earth. There is no one who can hold back His hand or say to Him, “What have You done?”

• Eph 1:11 We have also received an inheritance in Him, predestined according to the purpose of the One who works out everything in agreement with the decision of His will

He is, has been, and always will be in control of all of history…He is Sovereign

9. GOD IS UNCHANGING

In His character, in His ability, in His purpose…God never changes

• Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever

He has never been nor ever will be less good, less loving, less true, or less powerful

The God that Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob worshipped and relied upon is the same God we worship and rely upon…He is unchanging

10. GOD IS GOOD

God is always good…no matter our nature of sin…no matter how depraved mankind is…no matter how badly our character deteriorates

God’s character is always and forever will be good

• Psa 34:8 Taste and see that the LORD is good…
