Getting To Know God
His name is...
The Creator - The Light - The Glory - Aseity
Confidence And Strength
The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
The Bible teaches that apart from God, we can’t do anything. As people, we are depraved, corrupt, and condemned. To claim confidence and strength apart from God is a lie. God is eternally self-existing and self-sustaining, meaning that all strength and ability comes from the effects of His glory. If we want to escape depravity, corruption, and condemnation, we must leverage God and who He is. He has graciously made Himself available to us through the exclusive channel of Jesus Christ so that we can enjoy the benefits of His essence. Hence, we are able to have strength and confidence, where otherwise, it would be impossible.
