Lesson 2: Rooted in my Knowledge of Who God Is What is God like? What are his attributes? It would be impossible to find God or know Him unless He revealed Himself, and He has. As we look at the fundamentals of our faith we are going to see what God is like. Please know there is no way we can describe our God in one teaching or even a lifetime. God is REAL - GENESIS 1:1 God The Trinity Read Deuteronomy 6:4 Read Isaiah 45:5 There is only one God. This is monotheism. But the Bible also says clearly that there was a man, Jesus Christ who claimed equality with God and there is Someone called the Holy Spirit who is also equal with God. Read John 6:27; 20:28; and Acts 5:3-4. Who is God? How can those facts be harmonized? This can’t mean that we have three Gods, because God is One. Read Matthew 3:16-17. Read Matthew 28:19. Read 2 Corinthians 13:14. It’s important to understand this from the beginning, because whatever is true of God the Father is true of Jesus Christ the Son and is true of the Holy Spirit. How do you describe their roles? Let’s look at the ways God is the Father. God The Father Read Acts 17:28-29. God is the Father over creation. Read Ephesians 1:3 God is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Read Ephesians 3:14-15, Romans 8:15 God is the Father of all who believe in Christ. The first thing then that we learn about our God is that He is one God in three persons–a Trinity. What are some of the other things the Bible teaches us about God?
