Jesus is the brilliance of God’s glory.
“No one has ever seen God,” says John 1:18. Neither has anyone seen the sun. Yet, we can observe the radiant light of the sun. In the same way, God gave us Jesus to see with our eyes and our heart as the radiant light of God’s glory. Let this design remind you that Jesus, the living Word of God, is the radiance of the glory of God.
“Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.” (Hebrews 1:1-3)
