The Character of God
When we think of God the Father, we often become confused. Many of us have pictured the God of the old Testament as stern, mean and vindictive, wanting to do away with His enemies in a sweep of his hand. Then they look at the New Testament and see a different picture, a loving God, who tenderly cares for his people, even to the point of sending His son, to die on the cross for our sins.
So, what version of God the Father is correct? The stern Father of the Old Testament, or the Loving God of the New Testament?
The Bible declares, He is “the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). God is unchanged and unchangeable. He declares, “I am the LORD, I do not change” (Malachi 3:6). “He is the Father of lights, with whom is no variation or shadow of turning” (James 1:17). And finally He is “the incorruptible God” (Romans 1:23).
This series is designed to get us to rethink our understanding of God and His dealings with humanity.. Satan has done a terrific job of getting us to look at God through sin filled hearts, instead of looking at God the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ who is the perfect reflection of the Father.
