Message: “Compassionate, Gracious, Slow to Anger, Abounding in Love (Psalm 103:1-17, John 1:9-18)” from David Carey Dixon

Compassionate, Gracious, Slow to Anger, Abounding in Love (Psalm 103:1-17, John 1:9-18)

Compassionate, Gracious, Slow to Anger, Abounding in Love (Psalm 103:1-17, John 1:9-18)

As we start up a new academic year, we are meditating on the perspectives we need for facing new challenges. One of our greatest needs is to renew our vision of God as He revealed Himself in Scripture. There is an Old Testament phrase that God used with Moses as His "self-definition": "Yahweh, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness and faithfulness" (Ex. 34:6). This description is repeated eight times in the Old Testament, but only in one fragment in the New. We will explore its meaning as we seek to refresh our own personal relationship to the God of the ages and understand how this description assumed human form in Jesus Christ.
