Study 2 Objective: To Discuss What God is Like and Why it is Significant to the Believer...
Christ said, “All things have been delivered to Me by the Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him” (Matthew 11:27). The way to know God is through His Son.
Are we able by ourselves to reflect fully God’s image?
Can you think of ways in which God provides for mankind?
How can we understand the image of God and come to know Him?
Scripture reveals what God is like, and this is significant to the believer because we are created in God’s image.
From the Statement of Beliefs of the Grace Communion International/ Worldwide Church of God UK:
God the Father
“God the Father is the first Person of the triune God, of whom the Son is eternally begotten and from whom the Holy Spirit eternally proceeds through the Son.
The Father, who made all things seen and unseen through the Son, sends the Son for our salvation and gives the Holy Spirit for our regeneration and adoption as children of God.
(John 1:18; Romans 15:6; Colossians 1:15-16; John 3:16; 14:26; 15:26; Romans 8:14-17; Acts 17:28)
