Have you ever read the Gospels and wanted to look at who Jesus was?
Is our confidence in Him tied to more of what He has accomplished than what we understand Him to be? If we only look at what Jesus did, there is not much room for growth, but if our knowledge of who He is grows, then our confidence in what He says will grow exponentially. Beholding Jesus, looking upon Him, and discovering more about His character is transformational. What our soul longs for is not satisfied by knowledge of the things Jesus has done, but rather that we see Him for who He is.
The Gospels paint a profound picture of Jesus’ character, motives, and interaction with His creation. God’s Old Testament I AM claims are mirrored through the Gospels.
