Q:

How big is God? Is He bigger than the moon? I'm in first grade, and my mother said to ask you.


A:

I know it's hard to imagine, but God isn't just bigger than the moon -- He is bigger than the whole universe! God is bigger than all the stars you can see at night -- and even the ones you can't see.We know this because God created the whole universe -- and He couldn't make something that is bigger than Himself, could He? No, of course not. The Bible says of God, "The heavens, even the highest heavens, cannot contain you" (2 Chronicles 6:18). The stars and everything else that God has created remind us of His power and greatness -- and they remind us also that God is everywhere.Can we see God, like we can see the moon or the stars?

No, we can't -- and the reason is because God doesn't have a physical body. You and I do -- but He doesn't. God is a spiritual being -- and that means He isn't limited to one place or one time. No matter where we are, God is already there. That is one reason why you can pray to Him, and can know that He hears you.The most important fact I can tell you about God, however, is this: God loves you. God made you... God knows all about you... and God loves you! He loves you so much that He came down to earth and became a man -- and that man was Jesus Christ. Why not thank God right now for His love for you? Then ask Jesus to come into your heart, so you can begin to follow Him and live for Him the rest of your life.
