  • God is a spirit. He is not a material being nor is not confined to one location. We are called to worship God in spirit. The worship of God the Father must be done with the understanding that His Spirit dwells within and that we are accepted by the Father because of the death of Christ for the punishment of our sins. Furthermore, God is Spirit not confined to a single place therefore we are able to worship God at any location that we may be. Last, God is a spirit that is unseen therefore our worship is out of faith of the unseen.
  • We are to worship God in truth. Worshiping God in truth starts with the understanding Jesus is the only way to the Father. If we are to worship God in truth it must be done through the redeeming power of Christ blood. We must also worship God in accordance to His everlasting attributes and in the manner by which he prescribed in His commands.
  • The name God uses to describe himself is “I am who I am.” This name communicates that He always has and always will be present. The Expositor’s commentary explains it as, “I am truly He who exists and who will be dynamically present then and there in the situation to which I am sending you.” Moses had the confidence that God would not leave Him. The Holy Spirit is evidence in our own lives that God will never leave us because of what Christ did on the cross for our sins.
  • God is omnipresent and contains complete wisdom and knowledge of all that is created. We have the comfort that the God who dwells in us will guide us and help form us into the image of His Son Christ Jesus.
  • 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith Chapter 2: Of God and of the Holy Trinity


Discussion Questions

  • What does it mean that God is a Spirit?
  • If God is a Spirit why is He described as having physical features of humans (eyes, hand, etc)?
  • Is God the only spirit?
  • If God is a spirit then why did Jesus come as a man?
  • Why should we be careful to only think of Jesus as a physical being?
  • What does it mean to worship God in truth?
  • What can we learn about God from His attributes?
  • Can God’s attribute’s conflict with one another?
  • Psalms 139 says that God knows everything about us so why do we think we can hide sins from God?
