Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father'? (John 14:9)
So often, we have difficulties knowing God through Christ. Yes, we said that we know God when we know Jesus' character. Yet often, we tend to look at more tangible ways such as through touch and look. In our present time, we could not know how Jesus actually looks like, but yet Jesus said that anyone who has seen Him has seen the Father. Knowing Jesus is to understand His character more than seeing His physical being.
Christ’s character, holiness, kindness, love, and mercy reveal God’s character. Although our amazing, awesome God is beyond our complete comprehension and understanding, we have a tremendous gift in what He is revealed of Himself in Jesus.
Lord, continue to help me look at how Jesus treats humanity and through His character that I would be more and more like Him.
