Great Aspects Of God

Exodus 3:10-15

This is the account of where God called Moses to be the deliverer of Israel out of Egypt. You will remember that Moses is on the back-side of the desert and no one is present but he and God. God has told him to go unto Pharoah and tell him to let the people of God go. Moses is hesitant. Then the conversation changes to the children of Israel, and Moses asks God what name he shall use in convincing the Israelites to go with him. God then makes the statement that has been repeated thousands maybe even millions of times since.

(Exo 3:14) "And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."

In the N.T. we see where Jesus used this same name several times. "I am the bread of life"; I am the door"; I am the way, the truth, and the life", "I am the True Vine; The Good Shepherd"; just to mention three or four.

Have you ever stopped to think why God did not continue in the phrase in Ex. 3:14? Why did He just say, "I AM THAT I AM"? Why did he not go ahead and state what HE WAS? You see, there is no beginning and no ending to God. There are no boundaries. There is no height nor depth limit. God is without boundary. Had he stated what HE WAS that would have limited Himself to that particular claim. "I AM THAT I AM". What is He? He is whatever you need. Whatever He says happens.

There is no limit to what He is. "I AM THAT I AM." We can't explain God. We can't describe Him except what He has given us in the Bible. I want to give you some things about God that all of us have experienced many times and often overlook or forget about.

I. The Goodness Of God

II. The Glory Of God

III. The Gift Of God

Do we know His greatness? Have we tasted of His goodness? Do we know of His glory? Have we received His gift? Why not come today and allow us to introduce you to the great I AM. He wants you to come now. Will you obey?
