Scriptures: Isaiah 6:1-9, 1 John 4:7-21
Pastors for hundreds of years have struggled with the way to explain God's complex character. He is both just and merciful. He is both holy and loving. Sometimes it can be difficult to explain these things. They may seem like contradictions, but they actually fit together beautifully in the tapestry of God's character. Dr. Merritt's two part series, Fire and Ice, walks through a rich study of the character of God. Fire represents the God who is holy. The Bible teaches that this element is foundational to all other beliefs about God. Ice represents the God who is loving. From this element comes the most important gift ever offered: salvation.
