The character of God


God's Character #1

 Oxford dictionary defines Character as The mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. When God created us in His own image and likeness so that when can be like Him and do the things He does. But through the weakness of Adam and the disobedience of Eve, we lost that an everyday we are becoming more like the devil. You see this with how we treat each other, how you can't trust your baby girl with her uncle, how people respect you for sleeping with many people this was not the plan of God us. This is one of the reasons God had to send His own begotten son to the world not to judge it but to save it. Jesus on the earth lived a life that God wants us to live; He lived a life He was created for.

 That's why you hear Him say I and the Father are one, I only do what I see the Father do, how many of you can stand boldly and say God is my Father an I do what I see Him do? Jesus did not die for our sins only be He did so that as He is in Heaven so are on the earth. As Loving and forgiving as He is, so are we to be on the earth. Brethren we need to start praying in a way that we let God work in our lives and through our lives. We need to see Him more in our lives than our own flesh. Let's stop worshiping God because we in troubles or we need new material things that's called doing the right thing for the wrong reasons, worship God because you want to grow in Him and you want Him to grow in You. Lots of people shout greater is He that's in me than the one in the world but you should see how the react when the get flu or headache, they even forget that they were healed 2000 years ago on the cross. As long as you breathing you have a chance to be like God, Jesus said if you believe you do lots of good works than Him. Be blessed.

God's character # 2

Brethren our God is a giver and if we want to be like Him, we should be givers too. But the most important thing about being a giver is your motives. Before you think of giving someone something, ask yourself why you want to do it. Be Honest with yourself and if you feel that the reason of your giving is against the word of God, Pray and ask God for forgiveness just get your heart in the right place and give. You don't have to withhold the gift because of your bad motives but repent and do the right thing. I want us to check the motives of our God for sending Jesus Christ to the world. The bible says in John 3: 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

 The reason God send His son to the world was because of His Love for us, so Here the bible tells us that God demonstrated His Love for us by Giving us His son, so if you want to be like Him your 1st reason for giving should be Love, Give out of Love. Even in the church give your tithes or services to the church because of the Love you have for God, His house and His people. God didn't give us Christ to show off or to brag but He gave because of Love. The reason we don't give or tithe is because we Lack knowledge, I actually wanted to say we lack Love but I can't say that because the bible says the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. So we have the Love of God within us, but since we don't know that we fail to use it to touch the lives of people around us. We fail to give in church, when we do give we give because we want God to give us good measure pressed down, shaken together and running over.

We don't give because we Love God but we give because we want God to multiply what we've given. God gave you Jesus because He Loves you, Jesus gave Himself up because He Loves You, He even gave you His spirit because He Loves You. Do you tithe because you Love God or You want God to multiply your tithe? The 2nd thing we learn from this verse is why did God send His son, He gave His only begotten son so that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life, Here we learn that God didn't give His son for selfish reasons. So you brethren don't give because of selfish reasons, don't tithe or give offerings for selfish reasons but give so that there may be bread in the House of the Lord. Give because you want to change the lives of people around you. Don't give to the church so that you can go around telling people that see that red suit our bishop wear, that's my money right nope that's stupid and God will never bless you for that. Give out of Love and give to change lives.
