How God’s Attributes Relate to Your Wall

January 7, 2016

 

 

 

You’ll read throughout this website – and throughout the book Walls – that Walls are unhealthy mindsets that keep us from living life as God intended. Beyond that mindset, it’s important to remember that this unhealthy belief system is really grounded in a misunderstanding of who God is. To understand Walls, then, one must remember God’s attributes. Every Wall we face has at its foundation a direct misinterpretation of God’s nature. Check out this simple PDF to understand how our Walls relate to who God is:  Attributes and Walls

It’s time for a Faith Breakthrough!


Image of God at the Kitchen Table

October 9, 2015

“Tonight, we’ll face the math homework again. And it would be easy to think that focusing on the image of God means my daughter and I should skip it and just go read the Bible for a while. But that would be a mistake. Not reading the Bible, but thinking that imaging God has nothing to do with math homework.”

The image of God matters… especially at the kitchen table. Parents have the awesome responsibility of reflecting God’s very image to their children. Marc Cortez, author of the blog Everyday Theology, explains how life’s “ordinary” moments offer extraordinary opportunities to demonstrate God to our kids. Its well written, and worth your time.

Who is God?

March 29, 2015

“Who is God?” is such a good question to ask. Have you? Have you ever really spent more than a mere moment wondering exactly who He is? Some would have you believe that we can never even begin to understand who He is and what He wants for us. So they don’t ask such questions. Nor do they bother with pondering about His nature, His personality, His traits, or His attributes. Although most people claim to believe in the existence of God, they are largely unable to provide even a simple description of who He is.

Thankfully, God wants us to know Him. The Creator and Sustainer of all, and everyone, reveals Himself to us. God’s self portrait is found in His written word… our Bible. Scripture tells us that He alone is God. He has always existed. He will never cease to exist. He is one God, in three Persons. Head hurt yet?

Easier to grasp are His attributes. He is perfect. So is His love. He is perfectly just. He is holy. He is also perfectly merciful. His wisdom is beyond measure. Best yet, He never changes. And He wants a relationship with you.

Buried with guilt? So confused you don’t know which way to turn? Try something different this time: turn your attention to Him and study the God who created you. As you open His word and read about Him, you’ll find that many of His attributes are easily identified. For your convenience, the link below provides some descriptions of God’s nature. This short listing will help you better understand who He is, and how He can help you break through the barriers that keep you from Him.
