Discovering "I Am" - Eternal Attributes of God



Greetings to all readers! Today, I want to share with you some powerful reflections inspired by the sermon on December 9, 2023. The central theme: the eternity of God and His revelation through the powerful "I Am."


In the quest to understand God, we encounter various attributes that define His divine nature. Here are some of them:


  1. Holy: God reveals Himself as the supreme being, completely holy. Without holiness, no one can contemplate the Lord.

  2. Omnipotent: His power is limitless; He created the sun, the stars, and everything that exists, including man, out of nothing.

  3. Omniscient: He knows all our thoughts; nothing escapes His understanding.

  4. Love: The very essence of God is love, and the ultimate expression of this love was sending His son to die on the cross for us.

  5. Immutable: God does not change; His nature remains constant.

  6. Omnipresent: His presence encompasses every place.

  7. Eternal: God has no beginning or end. He has always existed and will exist for all eternity, a challenging concept for our temporal understanding.


Contrary to everything in the universe, God was not created. He is; He existed from eternity and will exist forever. When Moses asked for His name, the response was astounding: "I Am Who I Am." This eternal name proclaims His existence without limits of time.


"Before the mountains were born, before you gave life to the earth and the world, from beginning to end, you are God" (Psalms 90:2 NIV).


"But you, Lord, sit enthroned forever; your renown endures through all generations" (Psalms 102:12 NIV).


"Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary; no one can measure the depths of His understanding" (Isaiah 40:28 NIV).


All these verses, and many more in the Bible, speak of the eternity of God. "I Am Who I Am," that's how He introduced Himself to Moses. How has He revealed Himself to you? Do you understand that He is not limited by time? He existed before you were born, is with you now, and will continue to exist when you leave this world.


The key lies in the choice we make while we are on this earth. Will we spend eternity with Him or separated from Him? The decision is made here and now.


I hope these reflections have inspired you as much as they have inspired me. Until next time!
