The Incommunicable Attributes of God – Independance

Whilst reading CJ Mahaney’s Humility, he advised that we should all learn about the Attributes of God and especially the Incommunicable Attributes – the parts of God we don’t have.

So the first Attribute is:

INDEPENDANCE

God does not need us or the rest of Creation for anything, yet we and the rest of Creation glorify Him and and bring Him joy.

  • God does not need anything from Mankind.
  • God was never created and never came into being – he always was.
  • God is someone totally unique.
  • God actually delights in his people and rejoices over them.

I’ve got all this from Wayne Grudem’s Bible Doctrine, which is packed full of stuff, even though it’s a abridged version of the massive Systematic Theology!
