“He is the image of the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15).
With the incarnation of Christ, God became more real to the world. Partial glimpses were seen in a variety of offerings–creation, Israel, the voice of the prophets–but it was in Christ the world was offered the full revelation of God. Humanity desperately needs Jesus to be real in their lives. He becomes visible when we shine as his light and exude the fruit of his Spirit.
