My friend Cindy is a deep thinker and I mean that in the most complimentary way. She always is pondering something meaningful and wonderful about life. She loves God and it shows.
Yesterday she got my wheels turning. In the morning, on Facebook she asked, “If you had five minutes to FaceTime with God, what would you ask Him?” In the early evening, she then posted:
“If I could FaceTime God to ask Him one question, my question to Him would be: What do you see, God, when you look at me?
“If the purpose of Christianity is to transform us into the likeness of His Son, I would want to know how much of Jesus does God see in me.
“I doubt I would like the answer, but I would still ask.”
How much of Jesus does God see in me? What a great question!
But I think she would like the answer. If you have given your life over to Jesus and have accepted His sacrifice for your sins, then I think you would like God’s answer, too.
God loves us so much. He loves us in spite of… us. There’s nothing we can do to change that. You and I are the apple of His eye. (Psalm 17:8) He delights over us with SINGING! (Zephaniah 3:17) I can’t even wrap my head around that! And since we have been clothed with Christ (Galatians 3:27), I believe that when God looks at me and you, Cindy, He sees Jesus. In fact, God’s Word says our life is now hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3).
How much of Jesus does God see in me? All of Jesus. Hallelujah!
Good News indeed.
