2. Sovereignty (Will)
a. Goodness (Love, Grace, Mercy, and Longsuffering)
3. Power (Omnipotence)
Some trace of these qualities can be found in man, but not at all in the same degree, glory, or perfection. There is only a faint trace of these characteristics in man. For this reason, these perfections of God are termed God's communicable attributes.
Carefully study the chart on the following pages which clearly summarizes God's attributes. When studying, however, keep in mind that God is all His attributes at all times. Together, they shine with one brilliant, radiant light - full of beauty and perfection. God's knowledge, will, and power are all infinitely wise, loving, righteous, and holy.
Do you know, love, and worship this glorious and almighty God? Do you worship Him with deep reverence? There is no greater joy or deeper satisfaction to be found than honoring, glorifying, and serving this wonderful God. By nature, we do not know or love the Lord, but through God's regenerating grace, this is possible. If we love God in truth, then we love to walk in ways which are pleasing in His sight. Is this true in your life?
Omniscience - God's perfect knowledge of all things
Sovereignty - God's supreme ruling authority over all things
Omnipotence - God's being almighty and all-powerful
What were the reactions of Job and Isaiah when God revealed something of His majesty to them?
I have heard of Thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth Thee.
Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
The knowledge of self and God deepen together. The more God is exalted in our lives, the more we are humbled. Why would this be true?
