When you think about God, do you have a picture in your head?

If you do, what do you picture?

Where did that picture come from?

Here is a preview of the video.  (You can find the whole thing online, but I encourage you to support the ministry if you like their materials.)

Scripture from the video:
Exodus 3:14 
And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

Deuteronomy 4:15-18
You saw no form of any kind the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire. Therefore watch yourselves very carefully, so that you do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape, whether formed like a man or a woman, or like any animal on earth or any bird that flies in the air, or like any creature that moves along the ground or any fish in the waters below.

John 4:24  God is sheer being itself – Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.

John 10:10  I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest.

Discussion Questions
Why do you think people, including some writers of the Bible use human physical references like “hands,” “feet,” “eyes,” and “he” to describe God, when other Scriptures state that God is a spirit and has no form?

What do these characteristics of God mean: truth, love, grace, mercy, justice, compassion? 

Does he have these characteristics or is He these?  Like ‘He is truthful’ or ‘He is truth’?

Is what we believe or what we do more important to Jesus?  How do you know?

What does Jesus mean by “life in the fullest”?

Do you believe that if you live the way Jesus taught us to live, being in tune with the song, that you will have life in its fullest?

Jot down one thing you got from this video and discussion:
