No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
John 1:18 NIV
Made Him Known
Canada is known around the world for snow, maple syrup and hockey. You might not know that New Brunswick-based McCain Foods makes one-third of all the frozen french fries produced in the world. The Original Maple Bat Corporation, in Carleton Place Ontario, near Ottawa, produces baseball bats used by more than 100 major league players. Canada is the world’s largest exporter of green lentils – about 1.5 million tonnes annually. Using the same tools and techniques as Formula One teams, Toronto-based Cervélo builds what have been called the world’s fastest and lightest bicycles.
Over the years Christians have been accused of blind faith. While it is true that we walk by faith and not by sight, it is hardly blind faith. The Bible has withstood generations of critics that have tried to convince the world that it cannot be trusted. The Word of God points us to the Saviour, and millions of lives have been transformed by it. The Gospel is logical and Biblical apologists have proven this. It points to the God who has revealed Himself to human beings through priests, prophets and kings, and finally has stepped into our world in the person of Jesus Christ. John 1:18 tells us this: “No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in the closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.” Those who say that no one can ever know if God is real have never met Jesus Christ. In Him, God stepped into our world. It’s the heart of the Christmas celebrations – Jesus is Immanuel, God with us. We do walk by faith but not blindly. Jesus has made God known.
These have been words from the heart.
