This week launched my newest online Bible study, "To Know Him, A Study of Psalms", which the theme being on our identity. I introduced the study on FB live this week by teaching over Psalm 145. The main passage I taught on from this Psalm was verse 8."The Lord is gracious, compassionate, slow to anger, rich in love, good to all…" ~ Psalm 145:8
During the Bible study we looked at not only who God IS, based on this verse, but what that means He is not
If He is compassionate …then that means He is compassionate to ME. To YOU. Which also means He is not un-compassionate, or cold-hearted toward us.
If He is slow to anger… then He is slow to anger with ME and with YOU. Which therefore means He is not mad and angry and pouncing on every imperfection. He’s slow to anger. He’s patient with me. He’s gentle with me.
If He is rich in love… then He really loves ME. And He really loves YOU. Which means that He is not out to hurt us. He’s not annoyed, frustrated, hateful, and He hasn’t given up on me or you. Yes, He will point out the ways I need to change, He will convict me of my sin so that I’ll repent and turn to Him, but He will do it with love and patience as He kindly points me, toward a new way.
This correct view of God and how He views me, changes how I view myself. And when I accept His love and kindness and truly understand how patient He is with me, how can I not be loving and kind and patient with others? With my husband? With my kids? With that family member? With my frustrating co-worker? This truth about God and who He is changes how we view ourselves and therefore how we treat others!
