Give me a G

In my Bible alphabet blog series G stands for God.

Duhh... you might be thinking, of course G stands for God in a Bible alphabet. You don't need to be a scientist to figure that out. But let's make sure there will be no confusion about the identity of this God.

He is the God of Israel! He is the God who shows favor and love to Israel and the Jewish people. This might be politically incorrect, but it is Biblical.

He is the God of creation. He created the vastness of the universe and the smallness of humanity. Because He has the overall picture, He alone is able to give us purpose and meaning in life.

He is the God of love, because no matter what we have done (or failed to do) He is waiting for our friendship. Only His love and forgiveness can truly fill the emptiness that we often try to fill up with substitutes (whether chocolate or drugs).

He is the God of peace who wants His followers to live in peace with everyone. His peace, which transcends all understanding, will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

And by the way...

He is not the same God as Allah, because he has a Son who is called Jesus Christ, the Messiah, Savior of the world.

  2. Yes, God is the creator who created this world with the Word (his son Jesus) and who creates peace in our hearts when we trust fully in Him. :) God is good, in the true meaning of good.

  5. He is the God of hope, and the God of all mercy who comforts us. He is the Artist Godm our Abba Daddy God, and the one who sent his son into the world for us. Emmanuel, God with us.

    Thanks for this moment to stop and savor with you, aspects of our mighty God.

    Oh, I had a chance to meet a friend from Holland last weekend. He was out here visiting. I can't remember what city he was from, but it makes me smile now to think of it since you are from the Netherlands too.
