Guy Roberson

The apostle John wrote: “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!” (I John 3:1). The Father not only sent His Beloved Son to save us from sin, death and hell (I John 4:10), rescuing His enemies (Rom. 5:8) from wrath, He showed ...

Understanding God’s Wisdom

Guy Roberson

The apostle Paul wrote: “Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!  How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! (Rom. 11:33).  The word “depth” (bathos) describes a great or extreme degree of anything.  When this term is used as a quality in relation to God it describes His inexhaustibility, His profundity, and His inscrutability.  The term “riches” ...

Understanding God in His Holiness

Guy Roberson

The great prophet, Isaiah, wrote, “To whom will you compare me?  Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these?” (Isa. 40:25).  R.L. Dabney wrote, “Holiness is to be regarded not as a distinct attribute, but as the result of all God’s moral perfection together.” The word holy calls attention to all that God is. It reminds us that His love is holy ...

Understanding God: His Goodness

Defining the “goodness” of God can help us to focus on His nature.  “Viewed generally, it is benevolence, as exercised with respect to the miseries of His creatures.  It is mercy, pity, compassion, and in the case of impenitent sinners, long-suffering patience.”  Dictionaries define goodness with synonyms like moral excellence, worth, kindness, and disposed to the well-being of others.  The psalmist expressed the goodness of God in ...

A Personal Relationship With God, An Essential Requirement

In Genesis 1:26, 27 we read, Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness….So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”  Because our heavenly Father made us, He knows us better than we know ourselves.  He created man in order that He might have a personal relationship ...

Understanding God: His Unchanging Nature

The word “immutability” comes to us through Middle English from Latin immutabilis, meaning “unable to change” (Merriam-Webster).

This doctrine of God’s quality of not changing (His immutability) is clearly taught throughout Scripture.  God said through the prophet Malachi “For I am the Lord, I do not change” (Malachi 3:6). “He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is ...

God Has Placed “Eternity in Man’s Heart”

Solomon said that God set eternity in the hearts of men (Eccl. 3:11).  Solomon experienced every earthly pleasure possible and made this tremendous statement.  “Eternity” refers to a deep abiding awareness of something beyond this life.   In every human soul is a God-given awareness that there is “something more” than the darkness of this world.  Michael Eaton said, “Our consciousness of God is part of ...

Can We Know That God Is Real?

We realize there will always be those who will deny the existence of God and no amount of proof will convince them otherwise.  The psalmist said, “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God” (Psa. 14:1; cf. Psa. 53:1).  With many today, however, they do not stop with their denial of the existence of God but are now blatantly and forcefully scorning and ...

Does God Exist?

When the question arises concerning whether God exists or not the Bible points to the fact that people have seen sufficient evidence for His existence but have suppressed the truth about God.  “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for ...

Do You Stand In Awe of God’s Word?

When was the last time you stood in awe of God’s Holy Word?  The psalmist wrote, “Princes persecute me without a cause, but my heart stands in awe of Your word.  I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great treasure.  I hate and abhor lying, but I love Your law.  Seven times a day I praise You, because of Your righteous judgments.  Great ...
