Re: If we are all created in God's image, then what does God look like?

i think we have a pretty awesome idea when we look at Jesus Christ - John 1:1 says ..."and the Word was God" and goes on to say ..."The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:14).


so, if the Word was God and then the Word became flesh in Christ, then God is full of love for the ones that no one else loves, he's dangerous to the leaders who want everything to be about their own pride, and he is an amazing friend to 12 guys who didn't exactly have their act together.

i think it's a cool thought to think about. i guess the real question is what does grace, mercy, peace and righteousness look like?
