What is God like?

May 26, 2020 by Dr. Jack Graham

No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made him known.

–John 1:18

I heard about a little boy who was in Sunday school one day, and he was working away on a piece of paper – just drawing and coloring. So the teacher noticed how diligently he was working on this particular project, and she asked him, “Son, what are you doing?”

“I’m drawing a picture of God,” he said, to which she replied, “Well, son, no one has seen God.”

“That’s right,” he told her, “but they will when I get through!”

If you were portraying God to the world, what would He look like? Unfortunately, the world has a fuzzy picture of God. And as a matter of fact, even many Christians are confused as to whom God is like. But Jesus came to show the world what God is really like, and He did so by living a life that was a perfect model of God’s goodness and love.

If you want to have a look at God, look at Jesus. Read the stories of Him in the Scriptures. Watch how He interacted with the poor and the downtrodden. See how He stood up for truth in a world that was filled with so much false belief.

Know Jesus, and you’ll know what God is really like!

NO ONE HAS SEEN GOD, BUT JESUS HAS MADE HIM KNOWN. SO IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT GOD IS REALLY LIKE, LOOK TO JESUS!
