“Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, Who hast done great things; O God, Who is like unto Thee” (Psalm 71:19)?
Think about some of the characteristics of God:
Our God is HOLY – If God’s holiness was the same as ours, we would be in trouble. God is so holy that the angels sing a never-ending chorus of holy, holy, holy.
Our God is RIGHTEOUS – We would have no understanding of righteousness if it were not for God. I am grateful that He became sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Christ! You and I have the opportunity to become righteous because our God loved us enough to send Jesus Christ to die for our sin.
Our God is LOVE – Without God we would never understand what love really is. The Bible makes it clear that we did not invent love, but that we love God because He first loved us. There is none that can compare to God in the area of love.
Our God is TRUTH – We live in a world system that finds it far easier to lie than to tell the truth. If we as Christians are not careful, we can get sucked into that same philosophy that it is okay to tell a “half-truth,” as long as we are not hurting anybody else. The heart of our God is truth. God cannot lie! Every promise in this great book we call the Bible will happen, exactly as God says it would!
Our God is JUST – God is not an earthly judge that can be bribed, or influenced by our attempts to justify our sin. Our God is Heaven will always be fair and just. He will never make a decision based upon what the popular opinion says is right. He will never consider what the majority, or minority think. He is just, and He will always make the right decision.
Our God is PERFECT – I am so thankful that we do not have a “man-made” idol as our God. He has no flaws, or imperfections about Him. He is the only One that can make this claim. This perfect God is my Heavenly Father!
Our God is POWERFUL – We live in a time when man thinks he is so powerful that he does not need God. We witnessed the awesome power of God in the six, twenty-four hour days of creation! The world invented evolution because they don’t want to admit there is a POWERFUL God Who could have created all this in six-seconds if He wanted!
