Preparing for Worship: if there was only one word.

The English language is filled with descriptive words… …which we use to describe people and objects.

The Bible is filled with descriptive words…

…which are used to describe God.

If there was only one word to describe God, what would it be?

If we were told that all descriptive words for God, from His Word and our language would be taken away except one, which one would you choose?

Amazing?

Almighty?

Father?

Creator?

Righteous?

Savior?.....

I choose “Holy.” Why? To me that one word communicates perfection…that is God.

I am glad we have not been limited to one word, because honestly all the descriptive words that we can imagine to describe can never reflect His true glory.

One of the things I will do to prepare for worship this week is to make a list of words that in some way describes God, and then reflect on what my response should be to that description.
