A. W. Pink begins in his usual forthright manner by defining the Godhood of God. He puts it this way: God is omnipotent and absolutely sovereign, doing according to His will in heaven and on earth where none can stay His hand. In short, Pink asserts that God is God. Referring to a popular but false view of God, he affirms that God is much more than one who has given man the power of choice and consequently cannot compel man to do His bidding. Pink goes on to describe the true God of Scripture, pointing out how God’s ways are infinitely higher than ours. He concludes with an exhortation to the reader: “This is the first lesson we have to learn: that God is the creator, we the creature; that He is the Potter, we the clay.” According to Pink, this is also a lesson we must continually re-learn.
