What does God look like?

According to the Bible – the Gospel of John chapter 14 verses 8-10,

Philip said, ‘Lord, show us the Father and then we shall be satisfied.’ 

Jesus’ friends were curious like us and they too wanted to know 

What does God look like.

Jesus said to him, ‘Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? ‘Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father, so how can you say, “Show us the Father”? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?

So, now we have a very clear answer from Jesus to the question What does God Look like. You can confidently answer this question by letting your children know that God looks like Jesus.

Some painters paint God the father as an old man with gray hair and a beared. But God is eternal not someone who grows old. Therefore, it only makes sense to believe that when we see the face of Jesus we see the face of God.

On the other hand, we know that ‘Jesus is God’. Jesus is God the son in the Holy Trinity. So, again when we want to reflect upon, what does God look like, we only have to look at the face of Jesus.
