God does not have a Santa Claus Beard

Draft from 3 years ago, never clicked submit

Christians spend their life on Earth worshipping and obeying a deity they have never seen with their physical eyes.  But the hope is that one day God will return and completely reign on Earth.  in the Book of Revelation it is made clear that the ultimate reward for those who follow God will be to be with Him.  So what will He look like?

Pop culture has tried to create a visual of what God will look like.  I remember as a kid watching an episode of “The Simpsons” where Homer meets God.  God’s face isn’t shown but we do see a VERY tall man with a beard that droops to his feet.  I’ve seen other similar images of God and also just the thought that God is some nebulous being with no real form but a booming voice.

To see God in heaven will be more than just seeing a nebulous being. I will see the fullness of love (1 John 4:8), and joy (Psalm 16:11).  What does that even look like?  I’m not sure, but I’m excited to find out!
