Wednesday of the Fourth Week of Easter
Nobody of this world has seen God, so what does God look like? We have some ideas, or some images that we have seen of an old man with gray hair and a beard, and so we think this is how our God looks. Nothing wrong with that, because it is good to have some imagination, although God is nothing like we think. He is way beyond our imagination. Today Jesus tells us that: “Whoever believes in me believes not only in me, but also in the one who sent me, and whoever sees me sees the one who sent me.” Whoever see Jesus, sees also God, the Father. However, Jesus doesn’t talk about a physical appearance, because this is really not important at all. Rather, Jesus is trying to tell us that He is God, Son of The Father, and that by believing in and seeing what Jesus is like, we at the same time have an image of our God who just like Christ loves us, forgives, heals, cares for us, and brings us back to life. This is our God. There is no need to know about His physical appearance; but to know that He is our Father who loves us unconditionally is all that counts.
