What Is God Like?

Taking A Byte Out Of Lies

Who is God? What is He like? Six personality traits of God...

Who is God... He is Knowable.

With so many views of what God is like, how can anyone say he or she has the right view of God? First, it is clear that if something true about God can be known, it is true in all places at all times. In other words, two different people or cultures cannot have contradictory views about God and be accurate. If there is a God who is a certain way, then it would be a way that transcends individual and cultural differences. In addition, what is known about God could increase (the idea of progressive revelation), but God (as a perfect being) does not change.

God, who created the universe in all of its magnitude and creative details, is able to be known, by us. He tells us about himself, but even goes beyond that. He welcomes us into a relationship, so that we personally can get to know him. Not only can we know about him, we can know him, intimately.

Who is God... He is Approachable.

"Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight," declares the Lord.
Jeremiah 9:23,24

God invites us to talk to him and engage him in what concerns us. We don't have to get our act together first. Neither do we need to be polite, theologically correct or holy. It is his nature to be loving and accepting when we go to him.

"The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth." (Psalms 145:18)
"Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit." (Psalms 147:5) "...where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth."
Psalms 121:1,2

Who is God... He is Creative.

Everything we make is put together with existing materials or built on previous thoughts. God has the capacity of speaking things into existence, not just galaxies and life forms, but solutions to today's problems. God is creative, for us. His power is something he wants us to be aware of and to rely on.

Who is God... He is Forgiving

We sin. We tend to do things our way instead of God's way. Sin puts a hole in our soul. God sees it and knows it. God does not merely overlook this hole or sin but is prepared to judge and condemn people for their sin. However, God is forgiving and will forgive us from the moment we begin a relationship with him. Jesus, the Son of God, paid for our sin with his death on a cross. He rose from the dead and offers us this forgiveness.

"We are made right in God's sight when we trust in Jesus Christ to take away our sins. And we all can be saved in this same way, no matter who we are or what we have done... We are made right with God when we believe that Jesus shed his blood, sacrificing his life for us." (Romans 3:22,25)

In other words, God knew we would sin, it was no surprise to Him. He had a plan from the very beginning. He has filled the hole in us that was made by sin. Only He could do that. When we trust in what Jesus did on the cross, we bring our broken life to him, we become whole again. We are complete and perfect in His sight. Pretty awesome huh....!

IMbeggar is about finding new, different, creative, positive, entertaining, hard-hitting, and most importantly, accessible ways to talk about God (without being preachy, judge-y, didactic, sappy or boring… we hope). Whether you are part of the choir, on the fringe, angry-annoyed-fallen away, still searching, or just struggling to figure it all out like the rest of us… you're in the right place. We ask the questions we all ask, address the obstacles we all face, and present an opportunity to re-consider, or maybe even re-discover, God. The door is open, the choice is yours.
