The God we worship is a personal god. Day in and day out, He reveals Himself to us through the infinite number of ways that we can meet Him. You see, God exists beyond time and space. When we read the Bible or pray, we are reading about the Infinite One who has already come to meet us in our time of need. Whether you believe in Christ or not, He offers you a personal relationship that no one else can. For many people, this might seem like such an obvious thing to say about God. After all, it’s something that every single Christian believes, right? But how many times have we heard people speak negatively about their experience with God? That’s because true connection with God isn’t something that happens automatically – it takes hard work and constant self-examination. And if you’re ready to begin your journey towards true connection with your Creator, keep reading!
The God we worship is a person who wants to know us personally.
The idea that God exists beyond time is a surprisingly new concept to most people. In fact, many people believe that God doesn’t exist at all outside of themselves! Because people are so focused on the creation of themselves, they tend to forget that they are created in the image of a Creator who is far beyond the limitations of space and time. This fact is crucial to understanding the nature of God. God wants to know us personally. He loves us, and He desires to know our desires, our hopes, our dreams, and our fears. But the problem is that we (humans) don’t know ourselves very well. We tend to be blind to our own shortcomings and limitations. We are also so busy creating our own lives, we tend to miss out on the opportunity to learn from our Creator.
Belief in a personal god is not the same thing as belief in God.
Belief in a personal god is a foundation of faith. People who claim to believe in a personal god but also claim that this god doesn’t exist are missing the point. The concept of a personal god is simply a way of explaining the difference between the human and divine perspectives. Humans, who exist in a limited context, see things in terms of our own limitations – but God sees everything from the infinite perspective of infinity. When we pray, God doesn’t just understand the words that we speak. He sees our thoughts and our desires, but we don’t see these things because we are too busy focusing on our own existence.
The God we worship is a holy and righteous person.
God is holy. He cannot be tempted by evil. He cannot be jealous or envy others. He cannot be angry. He cannot be a person who is proud or self-righteous. He cannot be a liar or a cheat. He cannot be a thief. He cannot be selfish or greedy. He cannot be disrespectful towards others. He cannot be wasteful. He cannot be a person who is lazy or who is too busy living their own life without looking outside of themselves to see the needs of others. Yes, God is holy. And yes, he is just. God is a righteous person.
The God we worship is a person who wants to know us personally. The God we worship is a caring person. The God we worship is a holy and righteous person. So, what does all this mean? The God we worship is a personal god. He exists beyond time and space. He wants to know us personally. He is holy and just. He isn’t too busy living His own life, but rather He sees us as important and worthy of His time and attention. So what does this mean for you? It means that you have the opportunity to meet a person who only wants to know you and love you. You have the opportunity to experience unconditional love, and it doesn’t cost you a thing. You have the opportunity to experience all of these things without any effort on your end, because God is a personal god. You don’t need to earn God’s love. It’s freely given.
