Isn't He Beautiful?

Is it audacious or idolatrous to depict an image of Jesus?   I know many believe it to be so.  I believe we experience grace when we appreciate an artist's rendering of Jesus.   The many likenesses prepare the way for the day we experience Him face to face, a face we will never tire of seeing.   They tell His story to those who struggle with His words.  We are reminded that God did become Man for us.  We see loving eyes, tender expressions, and the terrible beauty of His sacrifice.   Don't worship the image, however, worship the One who redeemed us for Himself.   He is worthy of all glory, honor and praise.     My latest upload to Youtube is "Beautiful  Jesus" by Jeremy Riddle and features the lovely voice of TaTa Vega.
