How would you feel if someone said to you, “You’re just like your dad!” It may depend on what your dad is like, right? If your dad was handsome, and had the brains of a Nobel prize winner, you might be happy that people think you are like him. No matter who your parents are or what they do, you will most likely pick up many of their traits, whether it be their appearance or behavior.
In John 14:9 Jesus says, “…Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father…” If you asked Jesus if He was a lot like His Father, he would have answered, “Absolutely!” Jesus is our access to the Father (John 14:6). He is the visible image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15). The more you learn and know about Jesus the more you come to know about the Father.
We might not be the spitting image of our dad or mom, or even act much like them. But Jesus shows us exactly what God is like. Take opportunity through the scriptures to learn more about Jesus and you will know more about God. Reflect this week on how much you know about God because of what you have seen in Jesus.
