“Jesus is the most accurate translation of the Bible… Any idea that we could have had of God that is unlike Jesus would not be true about God! In Jesus the forgotten Father of the human race introduces Himself to us again as our only true Father. There is only one true faith…what God believes about us!” (Francois du Toit...from his book, The Logic of His Love, pg 3)
I love this quote because it shows
me Jesus came to reveal the face of God, the truth about God, the real
nature of God..and He revealed that He is Love! He heals the sick, hugs
the children to his heart, feeds the hungry, talks with prostitutes,
welcomes cheating tax collectors, raises the dead, forgives his
murderers, doesn't retaliate, doesn't judge, freely gives up His life
for all, calls us friends and tells us God is our Father who welcomes us
always, who throws parties for sinners, who joyfully gives us the
kingdom inheritance! Jesus showed us the face of God, and it's a
smiling face! He showed us the heart of God, and it's a tender heart!
He showed us the nature of God, and it's a kind nature! He showed us
who God really is: our loving Father!
