Series: The Greatest Commandments
Category: The Mission, Gospel, Creation
Speaker: Jason Williams
In this sermon, we continued our journey to answer the question, "Who is God?" We began by looking at how God reveals Himself in the Bible as one God in three persons: Father, Son, and Spirit. In the Gospel of John, we saw that the Father, Son, and Spirit have eternally existed in a loving and honoring relationship within themselves. God did not create us because He was lonely or needed relationship; He already had relationship before He created us. He created us as image bearers to reflect His character and qualities in the world through how we live in relationship with Him and one another. Our very essence and purpose are intertwined with our ability to forge deep, meaningful connections with God and others. Through loving and honoring others, we mirror the communal nature of God Himself and fulfill our ultimate purpose in the world.
