I have not knowingly seen Jesus nor have I seen God. So how is it possible for me to see, know, and experience God through Jesus?
But I can. I know Jesus through what I have been taught and what I have thought. God and Jesus are but two of three. Jesus gave me a helper, a friend (John14:17) that stays with me, within me. A friend that I have conversations with about life’s truths. He has opened my eyes to truths that I have thought about and believe for without thought you can’t have a belief. This friend knows of my pains, my joys, my thoughts, hopes and prayers as well as I do. My friend has helped lead me down many trails. He told me that I can’t hit the person that I had pinned to the ground (at age 12). I should let him up. And, when playing the game of life, truth always trumps friendship. But the most important truth that my friend has led me to see is the spirit and vision of Jesus and, in doing this, he has shown me God.
