Episode 3 in the “What Is God Like?” series.
Many people ask who God is and what is he like. What does it say in the Bible? And they sometimes get confused!The Bible is actually about a God who consistently and progressively reveals Himself to people. He doesn’t give us a set of theological concepts about himself but he interacts with people through their lives and experiences so they discover who he is for and to themselves. From their experiences we can discern what he is like (who He is) for all us – today!
Today’s episode considers a holy God who is fully committed to sharing his holiness with us. God’s holiness does not push us away, but rather draws us nearer, and make us more like Him. Discover the attractive holiness of God as we look at this together.
The Bible gives us a picture of a God who is vast, powerful, almighty, above and beyond us and our experiences, whilst other parts show us the God who is loving, caring, compassionate, intimate & close.
Even for Christians, it’s possible to get these two ideas of God wrongly emphasised. We have a Transcendent God. We have an immanent God. In this episode of What Is God Like? we are going to look at how we relate to this God who is both far off, and yet close to us, intimate and engaged in every aspect of his creation.
This is vital to our faith and to our every day lived-experience with God I hope this helps and encourages you.
Every blessing, Philip
