What is God like?

February 14th, 2008

Recently someone asked me the question, “What is God like?” My first thought was gee that is a nice and easy question to answer…hmmm perhaps not!

As I thought about it for a while two Bible verses came to mind – Colossians 1:15 and John 10:30. They are as follows…

“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation.” (Colossians 1:15 NLT)

“I and the Father are one.” (John 10:30 NLT)

If you are wondering what God is like today, then look at the life of Jesus Christ. Take a note of His teachings, His compassion, His love and His commitment to you and I. When you study who the Bible says Jesus is and what He has done, you will see what God is like.

If you have a Bible I would encourage you to have a read through the New Testament book of Luke. If you don’t have one, one is available here at Bible Gateway.
