Lesson 2: What is True About God?


What is true about God?

God is the Creator. He made us and everything else. All that he made shows us how wonderful and how powerful he is. In the Bible God tells us all we need to know about him and about what he has done.

John 5:39
“You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life;
and these are they which testify of Me.”

The Bible tells us that God is not like us. He is a spirit, and does not have a body. God never had a beginning. We grow up and learn new things, but God never changes. He has always been the same, and has always known everything. We can only be in one place at a time, but God is everywhere all the time.

In Psalm 139 the writer tells how amazing God is. He sees everything we do, and he is always there to comfort us, even when we wonder why we go through hard times.

Psalm 139:7-10
“Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.”

The Bible says that God does all his holy will. That means that his plan is perfect, and he is so powerful that he does everything he has planned to do.

We need food, air, and sometimes we need people to help us, but God never needs anything. He is always what he always has been, and he does not have to learn new things, or wait to see what will happen in the future.

Once we know what God is like, our job is to worship Him. We take time to learn about him, to sing about him, and to think about how amazing he is. We pray to him and tell him how much we need him. We joyfully read his word every day. On Sundays we worship together with other believers in church.

We should honor God by every thought we have, by every word we say, and by everything we do. This is what we were created to do.

Psalm 29:2
“Give unto the LORD the glory due to His name; Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.”
