Pause with me for a while and think of this question: What physical attributes do you want your dream man or woman to have? A beautiful face, deep-set eyes, a nice physique? Let’s face it, mahilig tayo sa mga magaganda at mga guapo (we like looking at beautiful people). But let me ask you another question: What about your dream God? What does He look like? Have you ever imagined how Jesus looked like in the flesh? Sorry to disappoint you, but Jesus didn’t come down looking like Brad Pitt.
In fact, it’s quite the opposite. If Jesus came down on earth today, we might not even recognize, much less give Him our time of day. The Bible doesn’t give us a lot of clues as to what Jesus looked like. But there’s a passage in the Old testament that gives us some idea. The prophet Isaiah says of Jesus: “He has no beauty or majesty to attract us to Him, nothing in His appearance that we should desire Him.” (Isaiah 53:3-4) By the world’s standards, Jesus was not good-looking. He was not matinee-idol o movie-star-material.The Bible said that Jesus was “a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces.” But even if He’s not handsome in the world’s eyes, that didn’t stop Him from fulfilling the very purpose why He came here on earth–to save us from our sins and let us experience abundant live.
During His time on earth, His being plain-looking didn’t stop people from approaching Him. Throngs of people would come to Jesus to listen to Him preach. Even outcasts would talk to Him. Because even though He might not be as attractive as Brad Pitt, these people were drawn by Jesus’ heart—His kindness, His compassion, His honesty. Jesus truly cared for people. And that is what makes a person truly attractive.Do you sometimes wish you were prettier or more handsome? Is their a part of your body you want to change? You don’t have to measure yourself according to the world’s standard of beauty. You are special the way you are. You are a unique individual created in the image of God! No one is the world is exactly like you and no one else can accomplish what God wants to accomplish through your life!The Bible says man may put a lot of importance on the outer appearance but God looks at the heart. Instead of fretting about your looks, why not try to cultivate qualities that matter to God? Qualities like wisdom, kindness, self-control, love, compassion. Do that and you’ll be on Jesus’ list of most attractive people!
