Theology for Kids: Who is God?

Who is God?

We cannot fully understand everything about God, but the Bible teaches us that we can know Him (Jer. 9:23-24). The only reason we can know who God is and what He is like is because He has told us. If God did not do this, we would never be able to know Him. Who is God? God is the maker of the “heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1:1), He makes everything in the universe work (Neh. 9:6), and He rules over the entire universe (Psalm 115:3). The Bible says that there is one God (Is. 44:6). You might notice that the world is filled with many “gods” but these are idols that people have made. Even though there is only one God, He exists in three Persons – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (2 Cor. 13:14). We can call these three Persons the Holy Trinity.

We can know God
Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord” (Jeremiah 9:23-24)
God is the Creator
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1)
God make everything work
You are the Lord, you alone. You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and you preserve all of them; and the host of heaven worships you (Nehemiah 9:6)
God rules over everything
Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases (Psalm 115:3)
There is one God
Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel
and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts:
“I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god” (Isaiah 44:6)
God exists in three Persons
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all (2 Corinthians 13:14)
