Getting a handle on God isn’t an easy thing to do. On one hand, He’s unsearchable, unknowable. On the other hand, He wants us not just to know about Him, but to know Him for ourselves. How do you do that?

Let me ask you … what does God look like? I mean, when you think of Him and pray to Him … what picture comes to mind? A white-haired old man with a long flowing beard? Or … what?

Honestly, it’s something I’ve struggled with over the years. On the one hand I know Him as God, the Father – my Dad. But isn’t it just the easiest thing to do to put Him in some small box and miss the whole point of who He is?

Colossians 1:15 No one can see God, but the Son is exactly like God. He rules over everything that has been made.

Quite literally back in the original Greek language in which it was written, it says that Jesus is the exact imprint of God. It alludes to the way that coins were produced back in those days, by striking a die onto the surface of the metal, to create an exact image.

The best way to think of God? The best way to picture Him?

It’s really quite simple. Look at Jesus. He is the exact image, the exact representation of a completely invisible God.

This powerful, loving, miracle-working Jesus who tore down man-made religion, who poured God’s love out on the poor, the needy, the marginalised, the least of the least, on the ones that you’d never have expected Him to.

The more you look at Jesus … the more you’ll see God.

In fact, “Jesus” is “God” written in a language that you and I can understand.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
