The Westminster Shorter Catechism says, “God is Spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness and truth.”
God is Spirit – simply meaning, God is without a physical body. We are spirit but with a body.
God is Infinite, also refers to His greatness:
There is no limitation to God’s essence, His nature or His attributes. God’s absolute perfection refers to His freedom from all limitation or defect in His characteristics.
The definition of INFINITE: “extending indefinitely… immeasurably or inconceivably great or extensive…subject to no limitation or external determination.”
There are no boundaries to God’s existence or any of His attributes. God is infinite in all His attributes.
In other words,
God is infinite in His being. His being has no limits.
God is infinite in His wisdom. His wisdom has no limits.
God is infinite in His power. His power has no limit.
God is infinite in His holiness. His holiness has no limit.
God is infinite in His justice. His justice has no limit.
God is infinite in His goodness. His goodness has no limit.
God is infinite in His truth. His truth has no limit.
Psalm 145: 3, Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.
Pause for a few moments and let your heart be filled with the beauty and awesomeness of our God. He is greatly to be praised.
