What is God like?

Thanks for Andy Naselli for linking to D.A. Carson's message from the NEXT Conference. Excellent!

The messages from the Next 2010 Conference (May 28–31, 2010) are available as MP3s. Don Carson’s assignment was to preach on God, and his sermon describes God and then unpacks Exodus 34:1–9. Here’s his outline:

Some Things about God That Christians Have Always Confessed
1.God is triune.
2.God is the transcendent creator.
3.God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent.
4.God is holy.
5.God is love.
6.God is self-disclosing.

Five Observations from Exodus 34:1–9
1.The setting is sin.
2.The revelation is dangerous.
3.The revelation is hugely self-defiant.
4.The revelation is frankly mystifying.
5.The response is unqualified submission.
