Why do Christians say 'God is the living God'?

The Bible teaches that God is the living God.


Christians use the word ‘living’ to describe God for many reasons; here are a few:

Christians believe...

  • God is real, he will go on living for ever and ever and ever.

  • God is full of life and power.

  • God doesn’t stand still doing nothing; he is active.

  • God is loving; he thinks and works.

  • People can trust God, he is the Creator and the Giver of life.

Christians believe God is not standing still doing nothing – he is living; he is busy doing things, listening, watching, loving, caring, giving, working, thinking and speaking.
