God is Spirit . ( John 4 v 24 )

A person asked me ,''show me God''? , idolatry is creating a god you can see,,but the Christian God is invisible. People  want to see, but one cannot see Him who is invisible  We are told  that  God is Spirit, ( John 4 v  24 ), Milne writes,'' no form can ever be made of the absolute one''. Leon Morris, writes, ''God's essential nature is Spirit '', and so it follows, that all His worshippers must worship Him in spirit and in truth..And that is also why our  Saviour told a very religious person,that one needs to be born again . ( John 3 v 7 ) Our Saviour  said ,that''Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit'' (Jn 3 v 6 )  How does  that Spirit birth happen ?, in John 1 v 12 -13  , we read,'' To those who received Him ( Jesus ) ,to those who believed in His name, He gave  the right to become children of God.Children  born not of human descent , nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God''. It means that God is not only with us, but is in us, And when that happens ,''we cry ,''Abba''  Father. The Spirit himself  testifies with our spirit that we are God's children . ( Romans 8 v 15 - 16 )                                                                                                                                                                                           How great is the love the Father                                                                                                               has lavished on us,that we should                                                                                                             be called children of God. And that                                                                                                           is what we are.                                                                                                                                                 ( 1 John 3 v 1 )
