"O LORD God of hosts, who is like You, O Mighty LORD?" (Psalm 89:8) God reigns sovereign and supreme, even in strange times such as these. When anxiety and fear tempt us to set our faith on the shelf in favor of more "practical" approaches to life, Christians should be reminded that nothing is more "practical" than believing what the Triune God has revealed about Himself ...Keep Reading
We have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed. (2Cor 4:7-9) Ah, LORD God. Triune King of all creation. Yahweh: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.Glorious and Majestic in all t...Keep Reading
This is the last of God's attributes in our teaching series, and it's a good one to end on. If we've learned anything throughout this series, it is that God is unique and there is none like him (Jer. 10:6). He is infinite, majestic, sovereign, holy, and indeed, wholly other.

God's holiness is the only attribute of his that is affirmed in a threefold repetition in Scripture and that is done twice (Isa 6:3; Rev 4:8). He is declared to be the "Hol...Keep Reading
God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son,Jesus Christ our Lord 1 Corinthians 1:9 When it feels like the world is disintegrating, when people and circumstances around us are unstable, unpredictable, overwhelming, or threatening, we come face to face with the fact that we are not really in control of our lives or situations; not for a moment. It can...Keep Reading
"The LORD is merciful and gracious; slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love." - Ps 103:8 While all of God's attributes should evoke a sense of awe, humility, and wonder, reflecting on God's graciousness provides something much more personal for the believer. If God is all His other attributes but is not gracious toward us, we are left in a great state of fear and al...Keep Reading
"Shall not the Judge of all the earth do what is just?"Genesis 18:25 The justice of God consists in the fact that God will give to each person what they merit, either punishment or reward. He treats every person fairly by giving them what they deserve.When God entered into a covenant with Adam, he gave Adam the ability to obey the requirement of perfect obedience in order...Keep Reading
