Our mental picture of Jesus may be one that we’ve seen on a portrait in church or in a children’s Bible. When we see Jesus, he’s not going to fit any of our preconceived images. When we meet Him in Heaven, we will see Him in His glorified form as He was in the beginning. All we will want to do is worship.
1. We tend to think of Jesus first as our savior and a caring friend, and that is accurate. What does it add to your relationship to realize He is also the all-powerful Creator?
2. What songs of worship lead you to imagine Jesus as He will be when we meet Him face to face?
Challenge: I gave my grandmother, the one who led me to Christ, a picture of Jesus in a lit gold frame. That picture was all I knew of how Jesus looked. As an adult, I still see that picture. But, I also see Jesus with a different skin tone, a rough face, scarred for my sins, but still full of light. Close your eyes. Picture Him.
