Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? John 14:9 (NIV)
I often wonder what people think when they look at me. I have always been a bit self-conscious about the way I look and how I present myself. They say an average of 13 people
On my best day of my entire life, I will still not even come close to the greatness that Jesus showed when he walked on this earth. Jesus tells us in John 14:9 that “anyone who has seen me has seen the Father”. I so want people to see the Father in me.
God has slowly but surely been washing off the wickedness in my life. I still have a very long road ahead of me to see victory over some of the things that I have subjected myself to in the 40 years of my life. My sanctification is happening before my very eyes each day with the help of Jesus, great friends, and a loving/praying family. I look forward to the day where everyone knows me for who I really am and I can be happy with the results.
Don’t fool yourself. The true epiphany in life is when your character meets up with your reputation. When you are who you say you are and the person everyone thinks you are.
