January 31, 2016 - God’s Identity - Exodus 34:6-7

posted Feb 8, 2016, 11:54 AM by Grant Garber
Some are guilty of stealing God’s identity by misrepresenting Him.
  • A prosperity God
  • A universalism God
  • A fast food God – so you can “have it your way”
  • A limited God
  • A political God
  • A legalistic God
Most of us want a God who serves us rather than a God we serve!
  1. I Am a Compassionate and Gracious God.
    • He is compassionate in that He loves and cares for us as a mother would her children. 
    • His grace means He comes to the aid of the weak.
    • Compassion and grace are not what God does but who God is.
  2. I Am a Loving and Faithful God.
    • He is a God who loves us with a love that never fails.  He is a God who loves us and is committed to His Word.
  3. I Am a Forgiving and Just God.
    • He forgave us, but then He invited us to live with Him. 
    • Forgiveness occurs for those who repent, while punishment remains for those who refuse to repent.
    • God doesn’t punish the children for the father’s sin, but the point is that children suffer because of parent’s sinful decisions.
Pastor Jim Spon | Exodus 34:6-7
