“There is but one only, living, and true God”

I have been really busy the last few weeks which meant that The Rankin File was the component of my life that was put on the back burner. Saturday I had written a cranky blog post  about people showing up at corporate worship on Easter Sunday after neglecting the weekly worship of the living God all year, but after reading it, I felt it would be best for all concerned if I just hit the “delete” button; so I did. I suppose that knowing when to speak and when to be silent is a trait that I have not yet mastered, but, by God’s grace, I am working on it.

Today I would like to simply leave you with these words from the Westminster Confession of Faith which reminds us that there is only one true God, and that we owe our all to Him:

“There is but one only, living, and true God, who is infinite in being and perfection, a most pure spirit, invisible, without body, parts, or passions; immutable, immense, eternal, incomprehensible, almighty, most wise, most holy, most free, most absolute; working all things according to the counsel of his own immutable and most righteous
will, for his own glory; most loving, gracious, merciful, long-suffering, abundant in goodness and truth, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin; the rewarder of them that diligently seek him; and withal, most just, and terrible in his judgments, hating all sin, and who will by no means clear the guilty.” (Westminster Confession of Faith, Chapter 2, “Of God, and of the Holy Trinity,” paragraph 1)
