There is a song that says, “God is not a man, or a white man with a white beard; He is not a man sitting on a white cloud, or an old man; He is not a flag, and He doesn’t belong to any government, nation, or religion … »
God is good, God is love, and that is what we often forget, because we want Him to be the way we imagine Him.
God created the universe, this planet, and you because He is LOVE. God loves you so much that He calls you His «child.» God is your Father. He is like a castle with walls that protects you when you have problems, and like a shepherd who looks for you when you are lost, alone, or sad. He is always willing to listen to you when you want to talk, to comfort you when you cry, and to smile with you when you feel happy.
One day, a disciple of Jesus, named Philip, told Jesus, «Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.»
Jesus replied, «Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.» You can read about it in John 14:8, 9.
When Jesus came to earth, He taught us what the Father is like. When He helped or healed someone, when He was kind to others or when He was angry at evil and selfishpeople, He showed us what God is like.
The apostle Paul says that «Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation” (Colossians 1:15).
So if you want to know God the Father more, you will have to get to know
His Son, who is Jesus. Write in your Prayer Journal how you think God is.
