God’s attributes…

God’s attributes
(Stephen Charnock, “The Attributes of God”)

Power is God’s hand or arm.

Omniscience is God’s eye.

Mercy is God’s heart.

Eternity is God’s duration.

Holiness is God’s beauty.
Without holiness . . .
His patience would be an indulgence to sin,
His mercy would be a sentimental fondness,
His wrath would be a madness,
His power would be a tyranny,
His wisdom would be an unworthy subtlety.
Holiness gives balance to all of God’s attributes.
