There’s no-one behind a curtain. No hidden agenda. Not with God. Don’t be distracted by the noise, critical comments from the cynical class. They’ll promise the world, but there’s no vision of God with them. You can’t see God if you’re looking away. Look. He’s shown Himself. Jesus Christ is the exact representation of God. He’s our snapshot.

If our Message is obscure to anyone, it’s not because we’re holding back in any way. No, it’s because these other people are looking or going the wrong way and refuse to give it serious attention. All they have eyes for is the fashionable god of darkness. They think he can give them what they want, and that they won’t have to bother believing a Truth they can’t see. They’re stone-blind to the dayspring brightness of the Message that shines with Christ, who gives us the best picture of God we’ll ever get.”
