No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and[a] is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
No one has ever seen God. Some have said we are always at an infinite distance and cannot fully know God. However, Jesus has fully revealed to men what God is like. How? Jesus is unique. Jesus, being the only son of God has a unique place and a unique love in his father's heart. Jesus is God. To see him is to see what God is. Between Jesus and God there is complete and uninterrupted intimacy. It is because Jesus is so intimate with God, that he is one with God and can reveal him to men.
PRAYER:Jesus Christ, as you come to the world in flesh that reveals God to us. God is no longer at a far distance, unknowable, invisible, unreachable to us. Lord, you have come to us; and you are never to be a stranger to us again. Amen
