Understanding the Patience of God

No study of God and His wonderful nature would be complete without understanding His patience.  When you consider the ungodliness of this world, from the beginning until now, one should certainly be impressed with the patience and long-suffering of God.  However, God being long-suffering to the sins of this world is often puzzling to many people, including Christians.  This was true of Jonah.  He ran away from his duty to preach to Nineveh, because he expected that if they repented, ...

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 ...
