Who Is This God?

We must always remember Who it is Who commands us.

Deuteronomy 10:14-16

“Behold, to the LORD your God belong heaven and the heaven of heavens, the earth with all that is in it. Yet the LORD set his heart in love on your fathers and chose their offspring after them, you above all peoples, as you are this day. Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no longer stubborn.”

Who is this God Who requires so much of His people?

There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind respecting the question of Who stands back of the Law of God. He is Creator, Sustainer, and Owner of all created things. Simple observation of the cosmos tells us that this God is powerful, wise, good, orderly, and unchanging.

Further, He is completely free and independent of His creatures; He has no need of the cosmos or of the men who inhabit it (Acts 17:25). He is immense, omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. He lacks for nothing. All the holy and eternal being and power of God stand behind His Law. Men must not doubt for a moment His intention of seeing this Law obeyed—not because of God’s desire to dominate or tyrannize His creatures, but because of His determination to bless them by teaching them the ways of love.

He promises that the Law He has commanded is for our good. He is able, as we see from the creation around us, to cause that Law to accomplish its desired intent.
