I like the way, the following idea, is expressed: ‘Jesus reveals in personal form the character of God – His righteousness and His wonderful saving love.’ If Jesus had not revealed God to us then we would never have known what God is like – really like. Our misconceptions would have kept us away from Him.’
It’s so true, in my view, that the greatest problem facing the world today is the misconceptions many have about what God is really like. There are the extremes; that there’s no god, or there are many gods, or a god of punishment, revenge and conditional love.
Perhaps, this situation has developed because we don’t fully demonstrate in our own lives the true characteristics of God which Jesus has revealed to us – what do you think?
