God Revealed

John 1: 16 For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.

The Old Testament was full of dim images and shadows of God. Religious rituals and sacrifice served as a connection to God. In the New Testament we have God coming in really human flesh through His Word, His Son, Jesus the Christ. Now we see the full embodiment of God. We see His light as He revealed Who Hs is and His nature. We see His love and compassion. As wee study the words spoken by Jesus and the life examples He walked we see God and we learn how we are to be in that image by speaking and walking as Jesus did. The word “Christian” means “little Christ.” and, as young children imitate their parents we are to do the same. Our question is are we studying the written words and the examples of Jesus to be able to make them through the power of His Holy Spirit, a real part of our own lives?
