How can I know that a person really exists? Maybe I see that person’s name in a telephone book. Maybe I read about them in a newspaper. But when I finally meet that person and talk with him, I can be sure that he really exists.
We cannot see God. So how can we know that He really exists? How can we know that He loves us? We read in the book of Exodus that God led the Israelites with pillars of cloud and fire. And God’s glory was in the Holy tent and later in the temple.
Then at just the right time, God came to earth as a man. This man was His Son, Jesus. Jesus walked among people. He ate with them and taught them about God. John 1:14 talks about God coming to earth. “The Word became a man and lived among us. We saw his divine greatness — the greatness that belongs to the only Son of the Father. The Word was full of grace and truth.”
Does God really exist? Yes, He does. More than two thousand years ago, He came to earth in the form of a man. Why did God do this? Because He loves us so much and wants us to live forever with Him! God is real, and His love for you is real. I hope you will tell someone about God and His love today.
