My daughter gave me a bookstore t-shirt featuring what easily could be a true-to-life sketch of the rough ruggedness of an Old Testament prophet or a New Testament apostle.
And I thought, The Lord made His prophets and apostles look something like this guy. Would the Lord come to Earth looking like something cleaned up, perfumed? Nah. Jesus was a burly-man.
Jesus came to Earth not majestic or pretty . . . Isaiah 53:2-3. It's sad, disgusting, the things people do to shrink Jesus.
Now He looks like nothing we've ever seen, as in Revelation 1:12-18.
Awesome . . . beyond measure.
I need to meditate on Jesus as He is, the Logos of the Trinity . . . firing up, looking forward to Sunday.
