THE GOSPEL IS OUR ONLY HOPE
(THE CHARACTER OF GOD)
For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities— all things were created through him and for him.
He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in welldoing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. For God shows no partiality.
“I, I am the LORD, and besides me there is no savior.”
“But I am the LORD your God from the land of Egypt; you know no God but me, and besides me there is no savior.”
We know there are depths to God that we will never grasp or understand, but we have been given pictures of who God is through His Word. Colossians 1:16 gives us the picture that God is our what?
It also shows us (see the last three words) about our relationship to him. What does it tell us?
Romans 2:6-11 lets us know that we will be held accountable for our actions and will receive based on our seeking. What is granted to those who seek good things?
We see the picture that God is our creator and we were created for Him, and that He is our just judge and finally in Isaiah 43:11 and Hosea 13:4 we see that we need Him because He is our what?
These thoughts and prayers are just a guide to get you started in your conversation with God. Think of them as conversation starters rather than a check list to quickly pray.
Thank the Lord that He created you for a purpose and that you belong to Him.
Thank Him that He is a righteous judge and treats us mercifully when we do not deserve it.
Thank Him that He alone is our salvation.
Wrestle with how you should respond to those aspects of God today. It may be in a song, or a poem or a picture, etc. Just respond to God.
