Who is God to you? Everyone has their own definition of God, some good and others based on their own understanding not so good. Webster-dictionary defines the noun G-O-D as a perfect being that is worshipped and the one who created and rules the universe. But if someone would’ve have asked you out of the blue who is God to you what would your answer be?
The best definition of who God is? is in the Bible and though it describes Him in many different ways but the most accurate and straight foward one is in (1 John 4:16) God is Love. But let’s dissect that “L” word a little, the word Love has been overused so much that sometimes we forget what it means. People do it all the time, for example I love this movie, or I love these new sneakers, or what about I love the weather today and let’s not forget the most controversial one of all “I love you“. How many times have you or someone you know said this powerful phrase to someone else or vice versa. How would you show someone that you love him/her? Its more than just saying the phrase our actions have to prove our love. God has proven His love for you and I every day that we wake up. No one says that we are guaranteed to get up when we close our eyes, God makes it clear in (Proverbs 27:1) “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth, basically saying there’s no such thing as tomorrow. When we seat down and eat is also proven love from our beloved Creator, and the list goes on and on from as simple as breathing to being near death on a hospital bed from an inoperable sickness and all of a sudden the disease has disappeared and you’re on the road to recovery there’s no limit to God’s love in fact this His infinite goodness is shown in (John 3:16) ” For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Can you imagine being a parent and you have only one kid, just one and you tell your son/daughter to go die for a whole bunch of people that dont know who you are so that maybe one day they will know us because we love them, and yes the Son of God has risen on the third day and He seats at His Father’s right side but still that’s nuts right? That is the Love of God, that is who He is. We are not meant to understand but to believe.
