The purpose of this current module is to explore what the Bible teaches about God Himself, which is to say, what God reveals to us about God. So if you wish to gain a deeper understanding of who the Lord is, these lectures aim to benefit you. The lectures in this second module on the doctrine of God are, like the others, introductory, not exhaustive; and they’re intended to furnish you with a foundation that you can build upon in your further studies. But that is not to say that they will be easy. When we think about the God of glory, we are dealing with deep and difficult matters. And this requires reverence, humility, diligence, and much prayer that the Lord would open our eyes to behold a glimpse of His glory by faith.
It has been rightly said that what comes to mind when you think about God is the most important thing about you. This is true, and it should not surprise us. God is first, highest, greatest, and most glorious. Man was created by God and for God, and exists to know, glorify, and enjoy God. When men reverse this order, thinking that God exists for man, rather than the opposite, we end up in idolatry and a world of evil.
