The Express Image

1 “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke
in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his
Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things,

by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and
the
express image of his person, and
upholding all things by the word of his power,
when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down

on the right hand of the Majesty on high;”
Hebrews 1:1-3

These three verses caught my attention the other day, but specifically verse 3. The writer of Hebrews declares that God has spoken to us through His Son, Jesus, and that Jesus is the express image of God. If you want to know what God is like, look at Jesus. He is the express image of God. That means God’s image is engraved in Jesus, like you would engrave a stamp. It is the exact copy.

When you see Jesus, you see God. God duplicated Himself in His Son, Jesus, so when you see Jesus’ love, acceptance, blessing and provision, you see God’s love, acceptance, blessing and provision. And, Jesus is still the same today as He was yesterday, and will be tomorrow and forever. The exciting thing is that when Jesus lives in you, His image is duplicated in you. Daily you can look more and more like Jesus to the world because you are the ‘spitting image’ of your Heavenly Father.

When our children were very little, people would comment and say how much our son looked exactly like me and how much our daughter looked exactly like her daddy. When God looks at you, He sees the image of His Son in you, and He smiles. He loves to see the ‘family resemblance’; and He wants to see it duplicated.

Let Him shine through you today. Let God’s love touch others you meet today. Let them see Jesus through you. It’ll change their lives forever.
