004 | Invisible made Visible

"If you want to know what God is like, look at Jesus; he's the "exact representation" of God." I am journaling through the book titled The Essential Jesus: 100 Readings Through the Bible's Greatest Story written by Whitney T. Kuniholm. He wrote the above in his reflection on the following passage in Hebrews.
The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. (Hebrews 1:3)
Jesus taught and did many amazing things. He taught about love. He said "Love your neighbor as yourself" and "Love your enemies." Jesus warned us not to judge others since we all fall short of the standard and have sinned. He also taught us not to hold on to 'things' in this world, that when we die, our possessions will mean nothing. Jesus taught us to be faithful and generous in our giving to others who are in need. He taught that we all need to serve those we love and he showed us by washing the feet of his disciples at the last supper. Jesus despised religious hypocrisy. He paid attention to those ignored by society. He healed the sick and dying. He showed mercy to the weak. He railed against corruption and the powerful and He chose the underdog over the rich.

When we read about Jesus in the Bible, the incredible things he said and did, we are seeing God. If we find it hard to understand and relate to the invisible, all powerful, and infinite God all we need to do is look at Jesus. He is the invisible God made visible.
