I noticed him watching his Dad and his uncle. We had seen him a few times as a teen, then he married, entered the service of his country, raised a family and we've seen him more this past year than in all the years in between.

He commented on how much they resemble each other. Not just in looks. Mannerisms appeared in both, which would be genetic, as they were separated for thirty-seven years. Although reunited a quarter of a century ago, distance kept us from visiting more than once every few years.

Yet, they resembled each other. Enough for people to notice.

Do people see the resemblence to Christ in us? Enough to notice?

That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: (1 Corinthians 1:5-6)

His parents were in the temple during His childhood. It was His custom to be in the synagogue on the sabbath. He was actively involved in the services, long before His public ministry began.

And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. (Luke 4:16)

Do people see His mannerisms in us? Will He see His ministry in us?

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. (Matthew 25:34-36)

When did we see Him in one of the least of these, His brethren? Are we waiting to serve Him in heaven without seeing Him here?

We need not wait for the reunion. Let others see Him in us, now.

Thank you for taking time to read and comment on the blog. Comments should take into consideration this verse: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 KJV)
