Qualities God Shares with People -- #1 Personal

If those are qualities unique to God, what about these qualities God shares with people? Let’s focus on four primary aspects.

The first quality God shares with people is that
God is personal, rather than impersonal.

When Moses encountered God in Exodus 3:14 -- "God said to Moses, 'I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

When God announces his name to Moses, God shows that he exists as a person. Even responding to a question reveals personality. The living God speaks!

God possesses personal traits like self-consciousness, intellect, will, and self-determination. He thinks, feels, chooses, and enjoys relationships with other personal beings like us. God is personal, rather than impersonal.
