Doctrine of God

This Summer, I am challenging the church to have an uncommon summer as we seek the Lord, serve the Lord, and have fun together.

Because our beliefs impact our lives and how we live is determined by what we believe, we are teaching through the core doctrines of our church.  We are digging deep into our faith to live it fully.

On Sunday, my message talked through key truths about the Doctrine of God.   Many people believe in God.  Some even claim to hear from Him and follow Him.  But, is this the God of the Bible or a God of their own making?

Through our study on Sunday, we were reminded that God is the creator of the world and that His divine design is where we find our identity.  We get to know ourselves more by getting to know Him more.  We don't look for our identity from within ourselves or from peer groups around us, we find our diving design and identity by looking up to God.  

Believing that God created the world perfectly and designed us intentionally has implications for our day.  Culture may say that our identity is fluid and that our feelings about ourselves determine our truth, but that denies God as our creator.  We don't create our own identity.  We were created in the image of God to live to honor Him.  This is our ultimate, primary identity.

God is not only the Creator, He is the Ruler of the Universe.  From everlasting to everlasting, He rules and reigns.  His Words are true, best, and never expire.  As believers, we submit ourselves to His rules because His rules rule our loves.  Don't twist the truth.  Don't deny the truth.  Submit to His truth because living outside of His Word and His Will is never best for you.

God is so powerful that He can speak our world into existence and He is so sovereign that He rules over all and His rules are always right.  But the Good news about God doesn't stop there.  He is all of these things and He wants to relate to you and me.   At His core, God is relational, loving, and good.  As we see the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit in Scripture and in our lives, we know that God is always with us and working to accomplish His perfect plan.

This week, live with a big view of God.   Live knowing that God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and always present.  Live with a big view of God and trust Him to do amazingly more than you could ever ask or imagine!
