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 is not like us. He knows everything, can do anything, and is everywhere at once. Even though we can't see God, God 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.
Go back to:
- "There are things about God that people cannot see – his eternal power and all the things that make him God. But since the beginning of the world those things have been easy to understand. They are made clear by what God has made. So people have no excuse for the bad things they do" (Romans 1:20, NCV).
- "No one has ever seen God, but if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is made perfect in us. . . . Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God has God living inside, and that person lives in God" (1 John 4:12, 15, NCV).
- "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him" (Hebrews 11:6).
