Ask Biscuit: Where Does God Live?

Here’s a question that I’ve heard from one of our youngest members: Where does God live?

That’s a good question! You might have heard someone call the church God’s House. That’s true, but it doesn’t mean God lives only in church. God isn’t like the rest of us. We can only be in once place at one time.

God is everywhere, all the time. That’s how God hears your prayers and at the same time hears the prayers of a boy or girl in Japan, or Mexico, or Iraq, or anywhere else in the world. That’s pretty awesome!

Next time you’re in the sanctuary, pick up a United Methodist Hymnal and turn to page 310. It’s a song called He Lives. The song talks about how we can talk to Jesus at any time. Look at the very last line of the chorus: “You ask me how I know he lives? He lives within my heart.”

There’s no place you will ever go that’s out of God’s reach. God will always be there to love, comfort and encourage you.

Keep the questions coming and remember by motto: Paws for Jesus!
