Some people are fond of speaking of God as omnipresent, everywhere at once, present in every blade of grass, existing throughout the entire universe. But they never seem to consider that in the process they depersonalize God and that they are advocating a kind of pantheism.
Yet the Bible reveals a God is a
person and acting in time and space. You can think of God presenting himself as standing alongside a road talking to a man named Abraham about his plan. This aspect of God is revealed in the pages of your Bible.
Now if God is a person, then it is logical that he has a personality and character. In fact, that is precisely what the Bible reveals to us. So the question naturally follows: What kind of person is he? What is he like? God himself tells us what we must know about him. Let’s begin by reading his words to Jeremiah.
