Sundays are a good time to ponder who God is. He is worthy of service and worship. We have been taking a look at God’s attributes each Sunday. Links to previous weeks are below. Most definitions are taken from Tim Challies’ visual theology chart of the attributes of God.
Remember, God’s attributes are not parts that make up a whole. Everything good that there is, is 100% contained in God. He is 100% beauty, 100% aseity, 100% omniscient, etc. He is complete in Himself.
Moral attribute: God is good to those in misery and distress and he is good to those who deserve punishment.
Attribute of purpose: God is able to do all his holy will. (This is also known as God’s sovereignty).
God has no size or shape and is present in all places with his entire being.
1. Aseity, Beauty, Blessedness
2. Eternity, Freedom, Glory
3. Goodness, Holiness, Immutability
4. Invisibility, Jealousy, Knowledge
6. Mercy, Omnipotence, Omnipresence
7. Peace, Righteousness, Perfection
