"Image of the Invisible God" - Day 26
Colossians 1:15 The Son is the IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD, the firstborn over all creation.
What does God look like? At one point in history, people could finally look on the face of love. Could you imagine? While we don't have perfect photographs of Jesus, we do have a record of his deeds. If you ever wonder what God is like, but have a hard time grasping at the "invisible God", then just look at Jesus as God. Through the hands of Jesus, God healed the sick. Through the ears of Jesus, God listened to the Samaritan woman at the well and answered her questions. Through the feet of Jesus, God carried his message throughout many towns. Through the painful separation of his soul from his body, God saved the world in the death of Jesus. And by his power, God chose to arise from the dead in the resurrected body of Jesus. How many dead people do you know who just choose to come back to life after a while, and are actually able to do it? Our God can! Let's give thanks to God for revealing himself through so many ways in Jesus!
