If You Want to Know God, Look at Jesus

December 27, 2020 Save Article

PRAY OVER THIS:

“[God] has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who [Jesus] being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.”

(Hebrews 1:2-3)

PONDER THIS:

Two thousand years after His birth, there’s never one minute on earth that millions are not studying what Jesus Christ said. Think about it: a person who lived in a tiny land 2,000 years ago, yet His birth divides the centuries from “B.C.” to “A.D. “

He never wrote a book. Yet libraries could be filled with the volumes written about the Lord Jesus. He never painted a picture, yet the world’s greatest art, music, and literature have Jesus Christ at their center. He never traveled far from His birthplace, yet His testimony has gone around the world. He only had a handful of followers and a ministry of only three short years, yet 2,000 years later, we still say, “Jesus, Your name is wonderful.”

He had no formal education, yet colleges, universities, and seminaries are built in the name of Jesus Christ. To know Him is to love Him. To love Him is to trust Him. To trust Him is to be radically, dramatically, eternally transformed.

Human speech is too limited to describe Him, the human mind too small to comprehend Him, and the human heart can never completely, totally absorb who Jesus Christ is. He was God, manifest in the flesh.

PRACTICE THIS:

If you want to know God, come to know Jesus. John 1:18 says, “No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.”
