I plan to share with you readers a series of writing titled “Lightweight Answers for Heavyweight Questions”(in short, LWA for HWQ Series) until it goes on.
I pray that the Holy Spirit will lead us as we discuss on the Bible topics so we can broaden and deepen our understanding of the Word of God and grow in the knowledge of Jesus and us attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ until He comes again.
Let me first start with the heaviest topic: “Who is God Himself?”
I learned the systematic theology in theological schools many semesters and this topic is the most difficult courses I ever had. But I would not let you go the same way I did.
The simplest answer from the understanding of the Bible:
“He is an Infinite Being Who exists in Three Persons(Father, Son, Holy Spirit) with no beginning or end of existence and Who is omniscient(all knowing), omnipotent(all powerful) and omnipresent(all present) and Who creates all things by His Son and Who shows His love by sending His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ into the world that you and me might have an eternal life through His Son and Who is to come again to rule in righteousness and peace.”
We read in, 1 John 4:9
“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.”
Lord, let us not say “we know everything about the Infinite God.” We only know about You as much as the Bible says.
You have shown Your Being to us in the Person of God the Son, Jesus Christ, the image of the Eternal God and now we know Him and love Him. Amen.
