100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #47 | with Daniel Whyte III
TEXT — John 1:18: “No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”
Perhaps the most pressing question regarding the Bible is not whether or not the Bible is true, but whether or not the God the Bible speaks of is real. Did He really do all that the Bible says He did? Is He really like what we read of in the Bible? John 1:18 tells us that nobody has ever seen God. It is easy for us to think that if God wants us to believe in Him, He should make Himself visible so we could talk to Him, touch Him, hear Him verbally and see Him with our own eyes. Yet, God remains invisible.
We often speak of the sun rising and the sun setting. In reality, the sun does not move. The earth turns and gives the appearance that the sun is moving. We describe the sky as blue. But any astronaut will tell you that the sky does not have a color. Just because we see something does not necessarily give us reason to believe it.
What about invisible things? You cannot see gravity, yet it works everyday keeping you on the ground. You cannot see radio waves, yet when you turn on the radio in your car, you hear people talking and music playing. What I am saying is that you cannot base your belief in something on whether or not you can see it. Whether God is visible or invisible does not really tell us anything about His existence.
Is it possible to believe in an invisible God? Is it reasonable to believe in an invisible God? I believe that it is. Let me show you three reasons why.
1. One reason why you should believe in an invisible God is because of the signs in nature that point to Him.
2. Another reason why you should believe in an invisible God is because of the intricate design of your very own body.
3. A third reason why you should believe in an invisible God is because of the life of a famous person named Jesus Christ.
