Week 1: What Is God?

 What Is God?

Psalm 86:8-10 and 15

Among the gods there is none like you, Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.  All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord; they will bring glory to your name.  For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God....  You, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

Answer

God is the creator of everyone and everything.

Prayer

Sovereign, mighty, and wise God, we believe you created and order everything for your glory and the good of those who love you. Please teach us to adore you and to be glad that you are our King. Help us to give you thanks in all things. Amen.
