Who is God?

God has a right to all authority because of who He is. He is God, the Creator of all the heavens and of the earth, the supreme author of all existance. He reigns over all and in Him all things exist. He is Lord, the Master and Owner of all living creatures. He is the covenant maker and keeper. He is Holy. As Lord, He will never ask anything of us that is not right, good, and open to the light. He is perfect and undefiled. Lastly, He is Redeemer, the one who bought us from sin's slave master so we could experience abundant life. He bought us to set us free. What, then, shall we say in response to this? As it is written in Romans 8:31, “If God is for us, who can be against us”?
