Who is God?

Part Three?

Introduction: 

About four weeks ago, I began a teaching called, “Who is God?” There have been two lessons on this subject as we have studied together the names of God. In the names of God, the lessons have been centered on God’s character, His personhood and His identity. We have studied specifically the Hebrew names of God so we can correct any false theology that we might have believed in the past. I will not review what we have studied because that information is on our web page.

Let us begin part three of this series today as we continue to discover who God really is and come to know Him very personally.

Outline: Who is God?

  1. He is our Sovereign leader.

1 Samuel 1:3

Now this man used to go up year by year from his city to worship and to sacrifice to the Lord of hosts at Shiloh, where the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were priests of the Lord.

Application:

  • Who is the true, honest and real leader of your life?
  • Who goes before you in everything that you do?

 

  1. He is our Sanctifier.

Exodus 31:13

13 “You are to speak to the people of Israel and say, ‘Above all you shall keep my Sabbaths, for this is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I, the Lord, sanctify you.

Application:

  • Who are you dedicated to, really?
  • Do we live like we are holy people?

 

  1. He is our Shepherd.

Psalm 23:1

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Application:

  • Do you allow the Lord to shepherd you?
  • What needs do you have that our Shepherd can only meet?

 

Conclusion:

  1. God is our leader.
  2. God is our sanctifier.
  3. God is our shepherd.
