Black, White, Blue, God gives everyone’s due

Nine-year-old Brittany says,” God is light blue and white, because I think He watches us from the clouds.”

There is a sense in which God watches over His people from the clouds.

Black, White or Blue- Jesus Christ WebWhen the Lord brought Israel from the bondage of Egypt into the wilderness, He led them with a pillar of cloud by day and pillar of fire by night (Exodus 13:21).

The heavens speak to us every day, if we have the eyes to see. The Psalmist wrote: “The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiwork” (Psalm 19:1).

Chris, who is ten years old, said the she always thought that God was tan. “I guess it is because the colour of my skin is tan,” she said.

Chris, thanks for your honesty. Instead of reading the Bible and asking God to reveal Himself, it is easy to assume God is just like us.

“I think God is gold in colour, because He shines like gold. I think God is so beautiful and his son, Jesus, is beautiful, too!” Justin (8) said.

The Zeal

What would you think of someone who rented a safe deposit box to store asphalt? If people

sought God with the same zeal they seek and hoard gold, their lives would change radically.

That is exactly what Jesus proposed when he said that we should seek the Kingdom of God first and let Him fill in the details of your life on Earth.

“God is a rainbow colour because He loves all people,” says seven-year-old Hunter.

When you stand before God’s throne, Hunter, you will see a rainbow surrounding it (Revelation 4:3).

God’s Promise

We know that the Rainbow is a sign of God’s promise not to destroy the Earth again by flood. But in heaven, the Rainbow represents more than God’s promise to Noah. It is a part of the glory cloud that surrounds the Lord Jesus.

“I think that God is all colours, because all the people of the world are in different colours,” says Jane (10). “God could be black, white, peach and maybe light brown. He is God, so He can choose.”

Try multi-coloured, says eleven-year-old Carter.

“I do not think that God is of any race or colour. I think He has a little bit of every colour in Him, because He loves us all the same.”

Nina, 9, answers the question this way: “People saw a bright light when Jesus came.” Hunter, Jane, Carter and Nina are on the same trail, because pure light contains all the Colours of the rainbow.

Apostle Matthew referred to Jesus when he quoted Prophet Isaiah: “The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light” (Matthew 4:16).

Jesus himself said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12).

“God is every colour because he is a spirit, and he changes colours,” says Taylor (10).
But Austin, who is also ten years old, says: “God does not have colour. He is so glorious that He does not need one. When we go to heaven, we will not care about His colour.”

Author C S Lewis said that all our questions will seem short-sighted and small during the first moment in heaven. They will be eclipsed by an overwhelming vision of God’s infinite glory.
Think about what Dave (9) said: “God is not a colour. God is spirit.”

Memorise this truth: “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:24).

Ask this question: Do you know Jesus as the light of this world and the next?
