Look at Jesus

The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 
— Hebrews 1:3 (NIV)

Have you ever wished you knew what God the Father was like? You know, how, what, and who He loves? Whether or not he really loves, or even likes you? I have.
I have found myself several times in my life wondering what God thought of me. I have, at times, doubted his love for me. How could he love someone like me? I am a mess, a wreck, a wretch. There is just one problem with thinking about God in this light: The Bible.
All we need to do is look at what the Gospel teaches us about ourselves and about God's love for us. As I read the passage above, the thing that struck me is the reality that if we want to know what God is like, if we want to know what, who, and how he loves us, then all we need to do is look to Jesus. 
In Jesus we see just how much God loves us. YOU are Loved. Did you know that? Look at who Jesus went to in the Gospels. It was the lost, broken, and rejected. Jesus went to the failures, the ones who knew how screwed up they were, and he offered them Grace. FREE and AMAZING GRACE. This amazes me and causes me to worship God.
How about you? Have you looked at Jesus lately?
