No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us (1 John 4:12).
I’ve often wondered about that first statement that no one has seen God. Why, the Old Testament is full of sightings of God. But I believe the point that is being made is that God has no form. He is not shaped like a human being or anything else, for that matter. Of course, He can take whatever form He wants, whenever He wants to. People in New Testament times have “seen” God, but being in the New Testament times means we live on a higher plane spiritually. The fact that God lives in us changes the whole dynamic of life. I believe the point being made is that if God lives in us, then when we love one another, when we look at each other, we see God. The more we see God in someone else, the more His love is perfected in us.
The most frequent references in the Bible where God is mentioned, He is referred to as fire. He is made of fire. It says He is fire from the waist up and fire from the waist down. Fire burns away the dross. Fire heats up passion. Fire defeats our enemies. I don’t know about you, but I want the baptism of fire! So if we want fire, what do we have to do? Love our neighbor just like God loves us. After all, He’s living in there!
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
