“Good morning. This is God.”

Who is God? How does God describe himself? On Mount Sinai God allows Moses to witness his glory for a moment. And while Moses stands in a crevice of the mountain, he hears the holy Voice say, “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness…” (Exodus 34:6). This description of God is echoed many times in the Bible, and each Sunday we’ll take a fresh look at who God is.

 

September 25

The Lord Is Forgiving and Just

Exodus 34:1-10

Is God just? We hope so, don’t we? We hope God’s justice will one day set right all this world’s wrongs. But if there was only justice, who could stand before the Almighty? Fortunately, God has also revealed his forgiving nature. Then the question remains, “How do we step into that forgiveness?”

The Lord Is Compassionate

Psalm 103:1-14

Do you imagine God as all business? Impatient? Eager to catch you messing up? Meet the God who cares deeply, whose heart goes out to those who suffer. Get acquainted with the God who regards us with tender affection, who is compassionate. “He remembers that we are dust” (Psalm 103:14).

The Lord Is Gracious

Psalm 86:11-17

The world can be a cruel place, can’t it? We must constantly be on guard for identity thieves, porch pirates, and online scammers. When your accounts have been emptied, when your life is threatened, and even when you’ve been unfaithful, there is one who remains on your side. That’s how gracious God is.

The Lord Is Slow to Anger

Numbers 14:1-19

Do you know someone with a short fuse? Maybe it’s you! The Bible says that love “is not easily angered.” But some things are worth getting angry about. Well-measured anger can be a healthy response in some situations. Nine times in the Old Testament we find that “the Lord is slow to anger.” Is that how you experience God?

The Lord Is Abounding in Love

Nehemiah 9:1-3, 6-20

Who is God now? That’s a hard question if you and your people have just spent the last seventy years in exile. So, they listen again to the story they had almost forgotten. They hear how God brought their ancestors out of Egypt. They learn that God keeps his promises. The Lord is loyal to his covenant and abounds in love.

October 30

The Lord Is Abounding in Faithfulness

Lamentations 3:17-23

At life’s darkest moments, we wonder who God is, don’t we? Is God the author of my pain? Or is God on my side against it? The prophet Jeremiah wondered these same questions. And in the end he dared to hope in God’s great faithfulness.
