God is with us
God is with us

Nothing is impossible with God. Jesus came to us, born of a virgin.

His name is “God is with us”. That is message of hope in God’s new plan. His goal is that we will have a intense relationship with Jesus. 

May I experience His presence every minute of every day. He is Immanuel.

While he was trying to figure a way out, he had a dream. God’s angel spoke in the dream: “Joseph, son of David, don’t hesitate to get married. Mary’s pregnancy is Spirit-conceived. God’s Holy Spirit has made her pregnant. She will bring a son to birth, and when she does, you, Joseph, will name him Jesus—‘God saves’—because he will save his people from their sins.” This would bring the prophet’s embryonic sermon to full term:

Watch for this—a virgin will get pregnant and bear a son; They will name him Immanuel (Hebrew for “God is with us”). Matthew 1:23

What does it mean that in Jesus, God is with us? What are God’s attributes?

When we talk about the attributes of God, we are trying to answer questions like, Who is God, What is God like, and What kind of God is he? An attribute of God is something true about him. While fully comprehending who God is impossible for us as limited beings, God does make himself known in a variety of ways, and through what he reveals about himself in his Word and in his creation, we can begin to wrap our minds around our awesome Creator and God.

God is unlike anything or anyone we could ever know or imagine. He is one of a kind, unique and without comparison. Even describing him with mere words truly falls short of capturing who he is – our words simply cannot to justice to describe our holy God.

God possess attributes that we can know (even in just in part) and he’s given us his Word as a means to understand himself. We’ve complied a list of 15 of God’s attributes; some are what theologians call “incommunicable” (qualities possessed by God alone) and others are “communicable” (qualities that both God and we possess, though only he possesses them perfectly).

Here are 15 attributes of God, what they mean and why they matter:

  1. God Is Infinite – He is Self-Existing, Without Origin
  2. God Is Immutable – He Never Changes
  3. God Is Self-Sufficient – He Has No Needs
  4. God is Omnipotent – He Is All Powerful
  5. God Is Omniscient – He Is All-Knowing
  6. God Is Omnipresent – He Is Always Everywhere
  7. God Is Wise – He Is Full of Perfect, Unchanging Wisdom
  8. God Is Faithful – He Is Infinitely, Unchangingly True
  9. God Is Good – He Is Infinitely, Unchangingly Kind and Full of Good Will
  10. God Is Just – He Is Infinitely, Unchangeably Right and Perfect in All He Does
  11. God Is Merciful – He is Infinitely, Unchangeably Compassionate and Kind
  12. God Is Gracious – God Is Infinitely Inclined to Spare the Guilty
  13. God Is Loving – God Infinitely, Unchangingly Loves Us
  14. God Is Holy – He is Infinitely, Unchangingly Perfect
  15. God Is Glorious – He is Infinitely Beautiful and Great
