Who Is God, Anyway?
We don't know what God looks like or how big he is. What we do know about God comes from the things we know he has done.
God made every one and every thing, including each and every one of us.
God made order in the world. Because of God's desire for order, morning always follows night (we never have three nights in a row with no days) and mother cats always have kittens (never puppies).
God made all kinds of things. We still have not found and named all the kinds of plants there are in the world, nor have we found and named all the creatures who live in the ocean. We still haven't found all the stars, either. Only God knows each and every one, because he made them.
The world is beautiful because God seems to like beautiful things. We could live in a black and white world with only six kinds of trees and five kinds of birds, but God likes the beauty of variety and color.
God gives us many gifts. He gives us our homes, our parents, our health, and everything we need for daily life. He especially gives us the gift of laughter, of getting the joke and seeing the silliness around us when we think life is becoming too hard.
God cares about us. He wants to hear our prayers, and he sent his only son, Jesus to live and to die for us, so that we might lead good lives, filled with thankfulness to him.
God sends us his Spirit, who calls us to do what God wants us to do, and who fills us with God's presence with every breath, so that God can live in our hearts.
The Apostles' Creed, Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed are the formal statements of what we believe about God.
Together, God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit are called the Trinity, or the triune (three-in-one) God.
We learn about God in his book, the Bible. And we like to sing, "Awesome God," by Rich Mullins, because our God is truly an awesome God.
