Most People Don't Ask This Question

Q. 4. What is God?
A. God is a Spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in his being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth.

When I look at who God is, I have the God of the Bible identified. He is not a vague something transcendent, but he reveals himself through his mighty deeds of redemption and his Word. He reveals himself in his creation and his law. He reveals himself in his incarnation and in his governing of all history. We know that he is a Spirit from Jesus telling us that God is Spirit and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. He is without human limits of time-space, nor is he in a process of changing as a man. He wisdom and power are easily thought to be without limit, but his moral attributes are also without limit. He is everything that is good and right. It is popular in recent years to indict God for the evil in the world, but his mercy is extended and he awaits for our repentance.
