Your Rhapsody of Realities Devotional for Today Sunday 21/08/2016

Theme: As You Look You’re Changed
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, PhD, DSc

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…(Hebrews 12:2).

Everything the Father is and has is in Jesus. Colossians 2:9 says, "For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily." He’s the expression of the totality of divinity. Now you can understand why He said, "…he that hath seen me hath seen the Father…" (John 14:9). In the eleventh verse of the same chapter, He said, "Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me…" (John 14:11).
