God with Skin On
So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father's one and only Son.
Some children were asked the question, "What is God like?" Ashley, age 10, said, "God is like a never-ending story that you want to read again and again. When I hear about Him, I want to know more. Although I can't see Him, I feel Him. He is perfect and pure. I know He has felt pain and has suffered greatly to take away my sins." Well said.Adrian, age 8, said, "God is cool. Awesome. Powerful. Nice. Big. Huge. Wonderful. Loving. Exciting. Caring. Giving. And the best." Adrian has some great insight into God's attributes.But I think Caleb, age 10, had the best answer. He said, "God is like Jesus, because God is Jesus." That is right. If you want to know what God is like, then take a long look at Jesus, because Jesus was God in human form.Jesus was not a mere representative of God; He was God himself among us. He was not a glorified man, but God in human form. As it has been said, "Jesus was God with skin on." He walked our planet and breathed our air and felt our pain. He was so wise that He could predict the future events of the world. He was so humble that He could get on His knees and wash His friends' dirty feet. He was so powerful that He could calm the wind and waves with a word. He was so approachable that children climbed into His arms.There has never been a man who strode across the human stage quite like Jesus. He stands apart from all others. And because of Him, we have access to God. C. S. Lewis summed it up beautifully when he said, "The Son of God became a man to enable men to become sons of God."
