What Does God Look Like?

Then Jesus cried out, “The one who believes in Me believes not in Me, but in Him who sent Me. And the one who sees Me sees Him who sent Me. I have come as a light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me would not remain in darkness. John 12:44-46 HCSB

As an educator, I was taught that when a child draws a picture of something and you are not sure what the child has drawn, it is best to say to the child, “Tell me about your picture.” This gives the child the opportunity to tell you what he has drawn rather than you guessing incorrectly and making the child feel as though he or she has not drawn a beautiful picture.

Jesus has drawn for us a good picture of what God looks like. Many people say they do not believe in God because they cannot see Him, but Jesus clearly says, “the one who sees Me sees Him (God) who sent Me.” If you want to know what God is like, study the person and words of Jesus. God is loving, caring, compassionate, understanding, and forgiving. He cares for the outcasts and the underprivileged. God is more concerned with one’s heart and mind than with outward appearances. If you know Jesus, you know God.

Challenge: God wants to have a relationship with you. He wants to reveal Himself to you through His Son, Jesus. Take time to study the life of Jesus and you will discover God, who loves you more than you can imagine.
