God is great and has all authority. He is all-powerful, all knowing, all loving and ever present. God is good, loving, compassionate and faithful to His people and promises.
James 5:14-16, Matthew 8:17
God the Son:
In Jesus, God became man. He was completely human, but at the same time, completely God.
