Seeing Jesus clearly is not a matter simply of his physical makeup, but of the character and spirit of who Jesus is.

What does Jesus look like? Take a minute and Google images of Jesus. (We’ll wait on you!)
There are thousands of images: young, old, long hair and beard, curly hair and smiling, red, yellow, black, white, brown. The more important question is, “What does Jesus look like to YOU?”
The Greeks came with a simple request, “We would like to see Jesus.” So would we! Look today into the eyes of the Risen Christ - in the homeless person, the little child, your bff’s.
On your journey today and in the days to come, look for Jesus. You might be amazed at what you see.
