Your View of God

How do you view God?

Do you see God as Judge..... waiting on you (or someone else) to do something wrong so that he can punish you (or them)?

Do you see God as Scorekeeper.....keeping a careful record of all the good and bad things you (and those around you) have done?

Do you see God as Handyman......waiting in the wings to swoop in and fix all your messes or get you out of a jam?

There are a vast number of things we believe about the character of God that simply are not true...or are only half of the truth. "Judge, Scorekeeper, and Handyman" are popular misconceptions about who God is. These are not the only misconceptions we have about God and his character that twist and limit our relationship with him.

Over the next few weeks we want to look at the true Character of God...God who loves you (yes you) and those around you (every one around you) so much that he did everything he possibly could to secure you (and all the rest of us too) a place with him in heaven.

John 3:17 God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Serving Him,
