What is God Like?

What is God like?

Ever asked that?  Or been asked that by someone else?

It’s not a new question.

Meet Philip.

On the night before he was crucified, Jesus is comforting his closest friends.  At one point, Philip asks,

“Lord, show us the Father (God) and we will be satisfied.”

Translation:  What is God like?

Jesus replied,

“Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.”

Jesus is the visible, tangible image of the invisible God.  He is the complete revelation of what God is like. Jesus explained to Philip (and the rest of the disciples) that to know him is to know God.

The search for God ends in Christ.

“The Son is the image of the invisible God… The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being.” – Colossians 1:15; Hebrews 1:3

What is God like?

Look at Jesus.
