12-18-2015 Jesus, More Than Meet The Eye

Peter reminded Christians of Jesus, “whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory” (1 Peter 1:8 NKJV). Peter was there when Jesus said, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed’” (John 20:29 NKJV). The Bible describes everything about Jesus Christ we need to know to love Him, His: character, personality, compassion, doctrine, motive, knowledge, power, wisdom, dedication, and purity. Everything, that is, except His physical appearance. The churches of Christ in the New Testament, Christians, never had statues, pictures, or any physical representation of Jesus Christ; only what was revealed in written Scriptures. According to Jesus’ statement, and Peter’s letter, the Holy Spirit intended that everyone look inside Jesus to be like Him.
