  1. Great post Lyn. What I like about this post is it explains that God is a “Being,” though one of “Spirit.” He is as real as you and I are in the flesh. I think at times, some fail to see God as an actual “Being,” because we cannot see Him, other than in His creations.

    I think in failing to see God as such, we miss out on a big part concerning our relationship with Him. Because we cannot see Him with our visual eyes, it is easy to forget He is there. It is easy for us to slip into not conversing with God. I know at times in my life, I have not so much forgotten God, but it was easy to make Him wait, until I got through with the “more important things in my life.”

    If we remember the things in the post we will come to understand God desires the same things from us, which we desire from others. Conversation, love, trust, and just being together in fellowship. We would not make a friend or family member wait if they wanted us? I think we don’t because they are “beings” we hear, see, feel, and touch. We need to remember we have all these things with God just in a different form. Good post and God Bless, SR

    • Excellent thoughts, SR.

      I love that He is an omnipresent Spirit, and not constrained to heaven, or to my neighbor’s house helping them when I need to talk to Him. I love the thought that I am made in His image…I look something like He does, even though we’ve never seen Him, we bear His likeness…and even moreso as we are transformed and become conformed.

      I am going to love learning in this series. I love it already.
