Advent Day 27- December 23, 2011 Friday
14 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.15 John testified about him when he shouted to the crowds, “This is the one I was talking about when I said, ‘Someone is coming after me who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before me.’”16 From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is himself God, is near to the Father’s heart. He has revealed God to us.
-God is perfectly revealed in the life of Jesus.
-God is like Jesus. Don't say Jesus is like God, although that is true. Many people can be like God in certain areas. People can be like God when they are loving, truthful, kind, etc. But God is not like any person except Jesus.
-God is like Jesus. God has always been like Jesus. There has never been a time when God was not like Jesus. We have not always known this, but now we do.
