10/2 Colossians 1:19

19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell.

Some people have said, "If God would just show Himself to me, then I would believe." God has shown Himself in His Son. If you desire to see God, you have but to look at Jesus, for the fullness of God dwelt in Him. God was pleased for that to be so because there was nothing impure or inconsistent in Jesus. He is God incarnate.

How else could He have rebuked the wind and commanded the waves, touched the lepers and made them whole, ordered demons to leave, or lifted a paralytic to his feet restoring his nerves and giving him muscle strength and balance? How else could He have fed thousands with a boy's small lunch, spoke healing to a manservant who was miles away, or predicted the destruction of the temple? Who turned water into wine, caused one who was born blind to see, and called the dead to life? Who else has walked out of their own grave after three days?

Who would say such things as, "I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but have the light of life" (John 8:12), or "I am the resurrection and the life" (John 14:25), or "love your enemies" (Matthew 5:44), or "no one comes to the Father but by me" (John 14:6)! Jesus said, "If you have seen me, you have seen the Father" (John 14:9). Paul was simply agreeing with Jesus when he wrote the words of the verse we meditate upon today (John 10:30).

Consider: The only appropriate response to seeing God is to worship Him.
