Philip, to see me is to see the Father: To look upon the face of Christ and see the Father, has little to do with gazing upon his physical features—however noble these may be. Rather, it is to behold in every action and in his every word, the Love that is the Father’s very essence and being. Thus, the “True Face” of our heavenly Father was nowhere more powerfully manifested than when Christ hung upon the cross, forgiving and praying for those who killed him. As disciples of the same Christ, our primary mission is to follow in Christ’s footsteps and by our every word and action to also reveal the true face of our heavenly Father. Failure to do so means that we mar and distort the face of God and give good reasons for unbelievers to persist in their unbelief and rejection of God. Surely, this should urge us to renewed efforts at our conversion and transformation into Christ?
