Q & A with Pastor Jon – “What is God like?” The Attributes of God part 3

Q & A with Pastor Jon is a teaching time utilized to answer questions that I have been asked over the course of my ministry. Remember, these are my personal study notes and not a manuscript of the sermon. They are provided as an outline each week for our Tabernacle Church family. The church provides a live stream of the service each Wednesday at 6:30 on Facebook. We also provide the services through YouTube. You can find Sermon Notes, Family Devotional Guides, Prayer List, and other resources at our Church Website.

“The foundation of all true knowledge of God must be a clear mental apprehension of His perfections as revealed in Holy Scripture. An unknown God can neither be trusted, served, nor worshipped.”

A.W. Pink

God is Omnipresent

Jer. 23:23-24

Ps. 139:7-12

  • In every place
  • At every time
  • Here with us
    • Great comfort
    • All powerful, yet all personal

God Is Righteous

Ps. 145:17

  • God always acts in accordance with what is right and is himself the final standard of what is right. (Wayne Grudem, Systematic Theology)
  • His righteousness is synonymous with His justice
  • His righteousness and justice is natural expression of His holiness
  • The righteousness of God is the divine attribute that describes God as acting always in a way that is consistent with his own character. (Fred Zaspel – https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/essay/the-righteousness-of-god/)
  • Redemptive Righteousness
    • Romans 1:17
    • 1 John 1:9
    • 1 John 4:10
