No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father's side, has made him known. (John 1:18 NIV)
It does not speak too well for our Christian testimony when God tells us that He has sent His Son to be His final revelation in this world - and we act bored about it! What a gracious gesture it was on Godís part. And the living God and Creator continues to speak to the men and women of a lost race: In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son (Hebrews 1:1-2).
But it leaves us with some questions to answer. Why is Christianity so boring to so many in our day? Is Jesus Christ still dead?
"Oh, no," we are quick to reply. "He is a risen Savior." Perhaps, then He has lost His power and His authority?
"Of course not," we respond. "He ascended to the right hand of the Majesty on high." Then that means He has left us to our own devices? Are we now on our own?
"Not exactly," we answer with caution. "We really have not been in very close touch with Him lately, but He is supposed to be our great High Priest at the heavenly throne."
Prayer Forgive me, Lord, for my failure to worship and wait before You. You are my life, my strength, my everything!
Thought Climatic in God's self-revelation is the Son - the appointed heir of all things, the creator, the radiance of God's glory, the exact representation of "God being." Christ is all that and our redeemer. In Him we may abide day by day. Are we?
