1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: The fact of God’s existence is so conspicuous, both through creation and through man’s conscience, that the Bible calls the atheist a “fool” (Psalm 19:1-3). Accordingly, the Bible never attempts to prove the existence of God; rather, it assumes His existence from the very beginning (Gen. 1:1). What the Bible does is to reveal the nature, character, and work of God.

OUTLINES
1 WHO IS GOD?
2 HIS CHARACTERS AND WORKS

1. WHO IS GOD?

Having a right thinking about God is of utmost importance since a false/perverted knowledge of Him could lead to idolatry (Psalm 97:7; Rom. 1:21-24).

Here is a good summary of who God is: the “Supreme Being”; the “Creator and Ruler” of all that is; the “Self existent One” who is perfect in power, goodness and wisdom. God, at different dispensations, introduced Himself to His people. For example, He is the Almighty God (Genesis 17:1), I AM THAT I AM (Exodus 3:13-14), the God of ALL flesh (Jeremiah 32:27). He is the ALPHA and OMEGA (Revelations 22:13).

God is spirit, by nature, intangible (John 4:24; 2 Corinthians 3:17). God is One, but exists as three Persons- God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7). God is infinite (1 Timothy 1:17), incomparable (2 Samuel 7:22), unchanging (Malachi 3:6). God exists everywhere – omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-12), knows everything- omniscient (Psalm 147:5; Isaiah 40:28), and has all powers and authorities- omnipotent (Revelations 19:6).

We must consider it great mercy indeed for God to reveal Himself to us as the true God. (John 17:3; 1 Corinthians 8:5-6).

2. HIS CHARACTERS AND WORKS

Here are some of God’s characteristics as revealed in the Bible: God is just (Acts 17:31), loving (Ephesians 2:4-5), truthful (John 14:6), and holy (Revelations 4:8; 1 Pet. 1:15-16). God shows compassion (2 Corinthians 1:3; Lamentations 3:22), mercy (Romans 9:15), grace (Romans 5:17; Titus 2:11-12). God judges sin (Psalm 5:5) but also offers forgiveness (Psalms 130:4).

We cannot understand God apart from His works, because what God does flows from who He is. Here is an abbreviated list of God’s works, past, present and future: God created the world (Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 42:5); He actively sustains the world (Colossians 1:17); He is executing His eternal plan (Ephesians 1:11)which involves the redemption of man from the curse of sin and death (Galatians 3:13-14); He draws people to Christ (John 6:44); He disciplines His children (Hebrews 12:6); and He will judge the world (Revelations 20:11-15; Acts 17:31).

CONCLUSION: In Jesus “all the fullness of the deity lives in bodily form” (Col. 2:9). So, to really know who God is, all we have to do is look at Jesus.

QUESTIONS:
1. Give a summary description of God.
2. Mention 2 characters and works of God each.

For Further Reading: Exodus 4:31; Daniel 6:3; Acts 27:25; Romans 4:3; Hebrews 11:6.

ASSIGNMENT: Students should mention ten (10) works of God around them.
