I’m doing my first ‘public speaking’ this week. Yeep! Did I mention that I break out in hives and get SUPER nervous when I speak in front of people?!? Yes, I know! Not real great for my call to ministry. But I have faith that God will provide me with the knowledge AND the ability to share his word.
I’m posting my outline for services, discussions(basically my notes)
THE NATURE OF GOD
Why do we need to know the nature of God?
1. It’s important to our relationship to God and the fullness of our faith.
2. We are ALL called to be ministers. How can we minister to others if we cannot even begin to describe God?
I. Infinite-without limits
1. God is spirit
a. God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth. John 4:24
b. A physical body and location do not limit Him
a. Wherever His creation is, God is there also
b. God is big enough to control the universe and nearby enough to hear every prayer we whisper
1. All power
a. God is capable of doing all things within his Will
b. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Gen 1:1
1. All knowledge
2. The knowledge of God is without limits
A. Abilty to use knowledge to make the best decision
1. God relies on nothing to sustain Him
V. Holy Love
A. All creation, our existence, and our redemption are the result of God’s love
B. God’s Holiness is his deep concern for what is right. His love is his deep concern for men’s good- Edwin Lewis
Wish me luck. Better still-Pray for me, Thank you!
