We have no idea what Jesus looked like.  The gospels are vague. However, Isaiah says this:

 

“He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.  He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrow, and familiar with suffering.  Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”                                                                     ~ Isaiah 53:2-3

 

This is a prophecy that was written centuries before Christ.  What if this is how Jesus really looked?  How does it sound? Doesn’t sound very attractive.  BUT people were drawn to him!  Why?  Because of the kind of person he was in the INSIDE!  He was spiritual! 

God wants to “conform us to the image of his Son.”  So…. it doesn’t matter if you are unattractive…it doesn’t matter if you have wild hair… it doesn’t matter if your voice is funny.  WE HAVE SPIRITUAL POWER TOO!  We can have an affect on people just like Jesus – if we choose to!

Sunday, March 24th we will talk about  – “Choices”.
