23 ACTS 17: From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. 27 God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.

32 IS THERE A GOD? The Bible tells us: Isaiah 43: Who the true God is: the triune God 2. Who one’s Savior is: Jesus Christ

33 “How do you start this thing?”

34 WHAT IS THE TRUE GOD LIKE? holy/just (punishes sin) unchangeable omnipresent (present everywhere) omnipotent (all-powerful) eternal (no beginnings or end omniscient (all-knowing) loving

35 His Word in My Life What does the awesome natural wonder you mentioned earlier tell you about God? OR What do the following tell you about God? A spring garden in bloom Our bodies’ ability to develop immunity

36 His Word in My Life Agree or Disagree – People could come to saving faith if they would only look closely at nature and listen to their conscience.

37 His Word in My Life Agree or Disagree? The Bible is the light of salvation for everyone who reads it.

38 WHAT IS THE TRUE GOD LIKE? Our God is TRIUNE = Three persons in one Godhead or Deity Deuteronomy 6:4 2 Corinthians 13:14 Genesis 1:26

39 DEUTERONOMY 6:4 4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.

40 DEUTERONOMY 6:4 4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. GOD

41 GENESIS 1:26 26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

42 MATTHEW 28: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

43 2 CORINTHIANS 13:14 GOD 14 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Son Holy Spirit Father

44 THE PERSONS OF THE GODHEAD FATHER SON HOLY SPIRIT GOD is not is not is 1.The Father, who is the Creator (one who made us all 2. The Son, who is the Redeemer (one who bought us back) 3. The Holy Spirit, who is the Sanctifier (one who sets us apart) Note: All of the above descriptions of God – holy, eternal, etc. – apply equally to each person of the Trinity.

45 His Word in My Life Agree or Disagree – We have one God but sometimes he acts like the Father, sometimes He acts like the Son, and sometimes he acts like the Holy Spirit.

46 His Word in My Life Agree or Disagree – Essentially all people believe in the same God. They only call him different names and worship him in different ways.

47 His Word in My Life Question: We said that there are three persons in the Trinity and that they all do divine things. Can we distinguish between the work of the Father, the work of the Son, and the work of the Holy Spirit?

48 His Word in My Life Question: Would it be proper to address a prayer to only one member of the Trinity?

49 His Word in My Life “God is three and one at the same time – just as a triangle has three sides but at the same time is only one thing.” In what way is this a useful illustration of the Trinity? In what way is this not very helpful as an explanation of the Triune God?

50 His Word in My Life Why is it a comfort knowing that we have a Triune God? Hint: “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD (Isaiah 55:8)
