Some ideas from reading an interview of Tim Chester on his book, You Can Change.
In one of the questions, he mentioned that God is great, God is glorious, Good is good and God is gracious. These are some of the common characteristics of God which as a Christian I learnt quite often at church, fellowship, Bible Study and Sunday School.
What I enjoyed reading from this interview is that Tim took it one step further. He stated one of God’s characters and how it should impact the way we live.
- God is great – so we don’t have to be in control
- God is glorious – so we don’t have to fear others
- God is good – so we don’t have to look elsewhere
- God is gracious – so we don’t have to prove ourselves
