Jesus Revealed God To Us
2 CORINTHIANS 4:4 ICB 4 The devil who rules this world has blinded the minds of those who do not believe. They cannot see the light of the Good News -- the Good News about the glory of Christ, who is exactly like God.
What is God like?
Before Jesus of Nazareth came on the scene, the human concept of God was a bit fuzzy. (It still is for those who have not understood this truth.)
But Jesus perfectly revealed to us what God is like. He was (and is) Heaven's perfect representative.
COLOSSIANS 1:15 ICB 15 No one has seen God, but Jesus is exactly like him. Christ ranks higher than all the things that have been made.
COLOSSIANS 1:15 WEYMOUTH 15 Christ is the visible representation of the invisible God, the Firstborn and Lord of all creation.

The scriptures above should have made it clear that God is like Jesus. Now let's look at a verse summarizing the life of Jesus on earth.
ACTS 10:38 NKJ 38 "how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
Notice that Jesus went about DOING GOOD -- not doing bad. Not hurting people, but helping people. That is what God is like.
SAY THIS: God is good and likes to help people.
