What Are You Like God?


by John C. Westervelt


     In Asbury’s contemporary church service, I sing a song about a God of the galaxies.  I marvel at what goes on across His galaxies as viewed by a telescope in space.  I reach out hoping to know this awesome God.  I consider the miracle of man and all of life on earth, and I recognize that this is only possible because God arranged for energy from the sun and photosynthesis on the earth.

     Searching for answers, I read my Bible.  There I discover that God has been a part of man’s journey down through the ages.  David, a man after God’s own heart, tells me that God is like a shepherd.  This is an answer to my question, “What are You like God?”

     As I read about Jesus’ encounter with people as recorded in the Gospels, I visualize a winsome man of love.  He expresses a tough or tender love depending on my need.  I fill my mind with pictures of Jesus and those He touched with His words or His hands.

     Jesus said to Philip, “Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father.”  This is an answer to my question, “What are You like God?”


John 14:9, Psalm 23
