It is important to let the whole Bible, the Old and New Testaments, inform our understanding of God. The Bible describes God acting in loving and merciful ways, but it also describes harsher actions like wrath and judgement. All of God’s actions come from His perfect character. God is holy, set apart, one of a kind, pure, nonesuch, unequaled, rare, the greatest, matchless, not safe, and very good. And this God wants to be in the center of our flawed and messy lives.
