Identity: Who is God? Who are we?

God is All Knowing, All Present and All Powerful, and then we see that we are all “fearfully and wonderfully made” out of his love and grace. Each of us has unique abilities and gifts because we are wonderfully made. Each of us is loved by God and is important to God. This is essential to understand because this lifts up those who are down and depressed…but it also tears down the prideful by reminding them that while they are indeed unique and valuable, they are not of more worth than anybody else in the eyes of God. This passage also discusses that we are fearfully made, which might be better translated in today’s English as meaning: Awe-Inspiring. Because of our gifts, we have the ability to do so much good work…but we also have the ability to do so much bad. The choice is ours and ours alone. The main key point of this first sermon is to help the church know my theology on God and humanity as we move forward together as Assurance.
