God’s word tells us so much about Him and about us. Way back in the beginning, God made the world and everything in it. He made the Sun, all the plants, all the animals and humans. He created all of that and gave the world life! This answers the question, “Who is God?” Today we learned that God is the ______________and _____________ of LIFE. This is part of God’s character. Another part of God’s character is His faithfulness to remain in our lives. He didn’t just create us, give us life, and leave us alone. He is the sustainer of life; He remains with us always. He is faithful to be with us always because He wants a relationship with us! (Colossians 1:16, Matthew 28:20).
