Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:17
What would you tell someone who asked for a definition of God? One person aptly replied: "God is the One who exists beyond all definition."
Another person, the well-known theologian Charles Hodge, suggested the best definition of God that was ever penned is in the Westminster Shorter Catechism: "God is a Spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth."
Another way of defining God is by looking at Christ, for Jesus said, "He who has seen Me has seen the Father" (John 14:9). Jesus is God personified, the Word made flesh who dwelled among us. When we hear Christ's wisdom, we're listening to God. When we see His power, we're witnessing omnipotence. When we feel His love, we know the love God lavishes on us. Christ is worthy of our praise because of who He is, and we should praise Him all day long. As British hymnist Henry Lyte wrote: "Praise my soul, the King of heaven; to His feet thy tribute bring. Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven, evermore His praises sing."
Jesus is God! O! Could I now but compass earth and sea, to teach and tell the single truth, how happy should I be!
