Have You Seen Jesus?

Published 1/2/20

Read Hebrews 1:1-4

"Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs."


Reflect

What does Scripture mean when it says, "He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature"?


Oswald Chambers said, "Being saved and seeing Jesus are not the same thing. Many are partakers of God's grace who have never seen Jesus. When once you have seen Jesus, you can never be the same, other things do not appeal as they used to do. . . . If you have a vision of Jesus as He is, experiences can come and go, you will endure 'as seeing Him Who is invisible.' "


This devotional series is all about experiencing fresh encounters with Jesus, seeing Him more clearly and letting that vision transform your life. Most of us don't need another program to attend at church, more committee meetings, conferences, or Bible software as much as we need a fresh revelation of Christ. Because when we see Jesus and encounter Him, we are changed! Our hearts are renewed, and we are energized to continue on God's path.


Second Corinthians 3:18 says, "We all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit." When we see Jesus, even a glimpse, "we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him" (2 Corinthians 3:18 MSG).

Seeing and really encountering Jesus clearly changes us--it changes the way we live, including our behavior, our relationships, and our goals.


Pray

Lord, help me to grow closer to You. You are awesome and I praise and worship You. Amen.
