  5. 21. Transcendence means that God is far &quot;above&quot; the creation in the sense that He is greater than the creation and is independent of it. Immanence means His nearness, kind, caring, protection and being close to us Incommunicable means certain attributes of God that are not communicated to us, this does not mean that they are not revealed to us, but rather we do not share in any part of that attribute, this is distinctively divine Communicable attributes are those attributes which He communicates and this means shares in kind with His creatures in part.
  6. 22. The Doctrine of the self-sufficiency of God
  7. 23. Questions for our study in the self-sufficiency of God Why are we here? What is our purpose? Why does God demand our obedience? Why does God enlist our service? Why does God call us to pray? Why does God require our worship?
