A Study Of God: God’s Attributes Describing Himself (1) (John 1:1-18)

Phillip Stuckey, October 20, 2019
Part of the A Study of God series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

So far in our study of God this year we have looked at His personal names, titles, and metaphorical names. In this lesson, we want to begin considering some of the attributes used to reveal and describe God’s nature in scripture. This is challenging since God is outside and beyond our human experience (Isa. 55:9). Let us consider some of the attributes that describe God in Himself, things that are unique to His nature.

John 1:1–18 (Listen)

1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.

The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”) 16 For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made him known.
