God does not have a body like a person that we can see and touch.

God is invisible to us because He is a spirit. Unlike a human being, He does not have a body. Even though we can't see God, He is everywhere, just like the air is everywhere. We can't see the air, but we believe it is there because we breathe it, see it move tree branches, and feel it blow our hair. In the same way, we can't see God, but we can see the things He does. God made everything in the earth and in outer space. He made you!

God isn't like us. He knows everything, can do anything, and is everywhere at once. Even though we can't see God, He wants us to believe that He is real. Believing God is real so much that you obey Him is called faith. God tells us about Himself in the Bible. If you read the Bible, you will know more and more about God without needing to see Him.

Bible Truth

"Ever since the world was created it has been possible to see the qualities of God that are not seen. I'm talking about his eternal power and about the fact that he is God. Those things can be seen in what he has made. So people have no excuse for what they do" (Romans 1:20).

"No one has ever seen God. But if we love one another, God lives in us. His love is made complete in us … God lives in anyone who agrees that Jesus is the Son of God. That kind of person remains joined to God" (1 John 4:12, 15).

"Without faith it isn't possible to please God. Those who come to God must believe that he exists. And they must believe that he rewards those who look to him" (Hebrews 11:6).
