Behold your God! Isaiah 40:9
Here is the miracle of Christmas: God became man in Jesus Christ. He is the image of the invisible God, the exact representation of his being (Heb. 1:3).
God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in Christ (Col. 2:9). We have the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 4:6). The full wonder of all that God is has been revealed in Jesus, so he says, “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9).
How can you know God? Where can you find God? Who is he? What is he like? These are the greatest questions of life, questions that will shape your eternity. And God has not left you to make up your own answer.
When you want to know who God is, look at Jesus Christ. And when you look at him, you will see holiness and compassion and justice and truth and mercy and kindness and patience and love. Look at Jesus Christ and you will see the heart of God: “The Word was made flesh and we have seen his glory” (John 1:14), and John says, “Here is what we saw: He is full of grace and truth.”
If someone were to tell you that they hate God, ask them to tell you about the god that they hate. Then talk to them about Jesus, who is the image of the invisible God, his exact representation.
Think about the answers to these questions: How can you know God? Where can you find God? Who is he? What is he like?
