What does God look like? I know He's supposed to be a spirit and all that, but doesn't the Bible also say that we will see Him when we get to heaven?


The Bible doesn't answer all our questions about heaven -- but yes, it does say that in heaven we will be in God's presence forever, and we will behold Him in all His glory. In heaven, the Bible says, God's servants "fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever" (Revelation 4:10).

This doesn't mean that God will have a physical body, or that He will be confined to one place then -- any more than He is right now. Remember: Heaven isn't like earth, only slightly more beautiful. Heaven is far more glorious than anything we can ever imagine, and in heaven we will be living in a whole new dimension. The Apostle John described heaven this way: "It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel" (Revelation 21:11).

Don't lose sight of the greatness of God. He created everything by His power -- from the farthest galaxy to the smallest subatomic particle. The Bible says, "Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made" (John 1:3).

But don't lose sight, either, of the love of God. He created you, and He loves you and wants you to come to know Him. He loves you so much that He sent His Son into the world to open heaven's door for us. Is your hope in Him? Make sure of your eternal destiny by giving your life to Jesus Christ today.
