Theology 101: God Is... So, We Are... (9.10)

Read Ephesians 4:7-16

“God’s promises are in stone… sometimes literally.” ~Asil Treblig

God is gracious, peaceful, full of goodness, generous, sovereign, loving, inclusive, relational, forgiving, all-knowing, all-powerful, a promise keeper, glorious, merciful, just, peaceful, and the Master Builder…

So, in Christ we are saints, full of faith, immeasurably blessed, chosen, adopted, redeemed, forgiven, wise, understanding, hopeful, heirs with Christ, sealed with the Holy Spirit, a reflector of God’s glory, saved, unified, and built up…

1. God Is a God of Covenants.

· He always has been.

2. God Is in Covenant with Us Now.
