God Made Visible

God Himself is invisible yet everywhere we look we see proof of His existence.

The evidence of God is all around us and His indisputable evidence came in the form of Christ.  “In the beginning the Word already existed.  The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God.” (John 1:1,2).

So why didn’t Jesus come to us at the beginning?

Can it be that, God wants us to choose to come to Him?  It’s a bit like when a child gives us a hug.  If we tell the child to come and hug us, it’s our decision and they are being obedient, but it may not be their choice, but when the child turns with no prompting and runs to throw his/her arms around us our heart melts knowing their love is genuine.

God continually asks us to choose Him.  Right from the start He gave Adam a perfect world and He also gave him free choice, but Adam and Eve disobeyed Him.  Then He sent the prophets to lead us, but the world kept rejecting Him.  That’s why He decided to come in person as Jesus, someone who could talk to us at our level, as one of us.  “He came into the very world He created,” (John 1:10). “So the word became human and made His home among us.” (John 1:14) This was God in the most visible form, the ultimate proof, the living word, “… and His light brought life to everyone.” (John 1:4). Jesus was proof beyond all doubt that God did exist, that God was visible and most of all that He loved us beyond all measure.  “No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is Himself God, is near to the Father’s heart.  He has revealed God to us.”  (John 1:18)

We have a choice, we have the instructions and the light, “I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life.  They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.” (John 5:24).   “I am the light of the world.  If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (John 6:29).

Where do we find the light?  The light is in the Bible it’s like a torch that illuminates “The Word”, but unlike a torch it get’s brighter every time you switch it on and follow it.

God bless you all
