An Unclouded View

Can we see God In our lifetime? What was it the little fellow said? Something like: ” Why is God invisible? Why doesn’t He have skin on, so that we can see Him?” Doesn’t He actually have skin on? Do you recall Jesus’ Words in John 14:9? He said: “ ….he that hath seen Me hath seen the Father.” That was wonderful back there when Jesus became one of us. God lived in Christ, in a body, as a sinless human being. However, Jesus has returned to Heaven. So…. we can’t see God today, right? Wrong! We can’t see God in His essence but we can see Him in His revealing of His character and purposes. Paul made this clear in Galatians 2:20. What He said about himself also applies to all who are born again. He said: “….Christ liveth in me.” Christ lives in the Christian! Why, then, is He not seen more? The sad answer is that too often our “self” life clouds the view of Him! What can be done to remove the clouds? The answer is simple enough. The Holy Spirit still reveals Jesus through the Word. When the Word shapes us, increasingly influences us, governs our lives, our thinking, our behavior, our character, the clouds will give way and people will discern God showing His Presence by His working in and through us. In that prayerful hymn: “O to Be Like Thee!” by Thomas O. Chisholm, he gave us insight into what it means to let others see Jesus in us: “O to be like Thee! full of compassion, loving, forgiving, tender and kind, helping the helpless, cheering the fainting, seeking the wand’ring sinner to find. O to be like Thee! O to be like Thee, Blessed Redeemer, pure as Thou art; come in Thy sweetness, come in Thy fullness; stamp Thine Own image deep on my heart.” Selah! Spend time with Jesus, order your steps in His Word,  be guided by His Spirit and soon the clouds will roll away!   Ron
