This study was taught by Sim Forder, one of our pastors, at our Sunday evening service on the 4th September 2022. You can listen on this web page or save the audio for later listening.
About this series
Our God is not unknowable, or evasive. In fact, He wants us to know Him. He wants us to know what He is like. He has revealed Himself to us, and has given us His Word. So what is God like? That’s the question we’re going to answer in part. In part, because we’re going to look at just 7 of God’s attributes. But by the end of this series, we will hopefully have a better understanding of who He is, and, what He is like.
About this study
God is love. That’s a description, not a definition – for if we reverse that and say love is God it would be, as one author noted, sentimental pantheism that is incompatible with Scripture. We shouldn’t try and limit God to being love, in the same way we don’t limit Him to being light (which we also read in the Bible). But while love is not all that God is, it does affect all that He does. God cannot act without love, for He is love. And this study looks at 5 aspects of the wonderful fact that God is loving.
- How has God demonstrated His loving nature in what He has given you?
- How has God demonstrated His loving nature in what He hasn’t given you?
- What would be a reasonable response to His love toward you?
