2022-3 Sermon Series
We all have a particular idea or image of who God is and what He is like.
For some of us, He is distant.
For some of us, He is a sovereign Lord who directs our lives as He wills.
For some of us, He is a judge.
For some of us, He is an angry punisher.
For some of us, He is closeby and speaks regularly.
Even if you don't believe He exists, that is also an idea or image of who God is and what he is like.
The premise of this study of the Gospel of John is that we can know what God is like by looking at Jesus.
It's not that there are not other ways to know (about) God - through nature, or our personal experience.
But in Jesus we find the full revelation of who God is. Jesus is the "exact representation" of God's being (Heb. 1:3).
If you really want to know what God is like, then Jesus is the one to turn to.
Why is this important?
Because many of us have images of God that do not match with the image presented by Jesus.
When our image of God does not match the reality of who He is, we miss a lot.
As we understand who Jesus is, we know more about who God is.
And we are invited to "become part of the drama that has him as the central character".
