Who IS God?
what is God?
Where can we get trustworthy information about God?
GOD IS THE ALL-POWERFUL, all-knowing, and all-loving Creator of the universe, who desires a personal relationship with each individual and works actively in the world to bring about His purposes. The Bible is the primary source of our knowledge about God.
three Persons in one God
God is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe — the source of all life, meaning, and purpose.
God is the Trinity, which means that God exists as three distinct persons — the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit — yet is one in essence and nature.
Although not a perfect analogy, sometimes the Trinity is explained by a comparison with the three parts of an egg — the shell, the yolk, and the white are all one egg.
The word Trinity does not appear in the Bible, but the concept of three persons in one God appears in numerous verses.
One such verse is Matthew 28:19, which says: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."
This verse uses the singular word "name", but applies it to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit combined.
How can we know God?
God is holy, righteous, and just, and He requires obedience and faithfulness from his followers. God is loving and compassionate, and He desires a personal relationship with each individual.
Our understanding of God comes primarily from the Bible, which is the inspired and authoritative Word of God. God has revealed himself to humanity through his Word and through the person of Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God and the Savior of humankind.
God is actively involved in the world today, working through His Holy Spirit to transform lives and bring about His purposes.
There is power in prayer, so believers should pray regularly for God's guidance, provision, and protection.
Beautiful Bible verses about God
Here are some beautiful Bible verses about knowing, believing, and trusting God.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." -- John 3:16
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." — Proverbs 3:5-6
"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." — John 17:3
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." - Matthew 6:33
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." — Romans 8:28
God Reveals himself to Moses
An amazing answer to the question "Who is God?" can be found in the book of Exodus, chapter 3, verse 14, where God reveals His name to Moses:
"And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."
This name, "I AM," signifies God's eternal and unchanging nature. It suggests that God is self-existent and self-sufficient, needing nothing and no one outside of Himself.
Also, throughout the Bible God is described as a loving Creator who desires to have a relationship with His creation. He is described as a Father who cares for His children, a Shepherd who guides His flock, and a Savior who offers redemption to those who trust in Him.
THE importance of "I AM"
The name "I AM" (in Hebrew, "YHWH" or "Yahweh") is one of the most important and significant names of God in the Bible.
The Hebrew word for "I AM" is derived from the verb "to be," indicating that God is the ultimate source of all existence and life. He is not dependent on anything or anyone for His existence but is self-sufficient and self-existent.
This means God is not subject to the limitations of time, space, or any other created thing, and that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
In the book of Isaiah, God declares, "I am the first and I am the last; apart from me, there is no God" (Isaiah 44:6). This statement affirms that God is the only true God, and there is no other deity or power that can compare to Him.
For Christians, the name "I AM" has special significance because Jesus also used this name to describe Himself. In the Gospel of John, Jesus declares, "Before Abraham was, I am." (John 8:58), claiming to be the same eternal God who revealed Himself to Moses. This claim caused many of Jesus' hearers to accuse Him of blasphemy, but it also confirms that Jesus is the same eternal God who created the universe and sustains it by His power (Colossians 1:16-17).
