Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?  (John 14:9)

Monty's sermon today at the Advent Luncheon at St. Mark's was an "Ah hah" moment for me. 

The idea that Jesus was (is) a reflection of God was not new to me.  I believe that one of the reasons Christ came to earth was to reveal the nature of God to us -- look at Jesus, see God.  When Jesus looks into a mirror, he sees a reflection of God's eyes.

The revelation moment for me, though, was something else.  Jesus is a mirror for us, as well.  When we look at Jesus, we see who we are meant to be.  We were created in the image of God, and Jesus not only reveals the nature of God to us, but also reveals our own nature to us.  When we look in a mirror, we see God's eyes looking back at us.

Jesus was totally divine and totally human.  And he reflects each to us.
