This One who is life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen Him. And now we testify and proclaim to you that He is the one who is eternal life. He was with the Father, and then He was revealed to us (1 John 1:2).
From invisible to visible, from spiritual to physical, God became visible. Jesus was revealed unto us.
Actually, from the very first of beginning, He is glorious, He is invisible, He is eternal, not like us who are just human. But 2,000 years ago, He came down here, and He is the Word that became human, full of grace and truth that lived among with people. He is glorious, but He humbled Himself to be like one of us, to show off the glory of God (John 1:14). And He proclaimed all over the world the glory of God, the life and light of God, and His love, and grace. He became visible for us.
And as He came down here, they saw Him. Now, we can feel Him, we can directly feel God’s presence as we ask for it.
Before Jesus was born, God was actually apart from His people. They can’t see Him, can’t touch Him. An invisible One. How can people trust Him? Most of the people fear Him.
But God sent His only and beloved Son, to be the visible God, to be the image of God. Jesus showed the mercy of God that people hadn’t seen for them to see hope, and for us to see that we have the God that sacrificed Himself on the cross with so much love to save us.
He revealed Himself so we can see Him and know His true love. We may not see Him literally, but we can feel Him as He told us to have faith. He wants to connect with us, a God-human relationship.
