The Bible says, “He hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.” (Isaiah 53:2) Or, more clearly stated, “He had no form or majesty that we should look at Him, nothing in His appearance that we should desire Him.” (RSV)
In appearance he was an ordinary, nondescript person. Yet there was in Him all of the glory, all of the serenity, all of the dignity, all of the majesty, all of the purity, all of the character of God in human flesh. But not because of outward extravagance. And when He did miracles, they were not publicity stunts. We would admire Him, but not because of outward extravagance.
Why did He come as He did? Because He wanted us to respond to Him by faith, and without faith it is impossible to please Him.
When your eye is right, it responds to light. When your ear is right, it responds to sound. When your heart is right, it responds to God, and that response is called F-A-I-T-H. Faith is the heart’s response to God. That is the reason the Bible says, “Beware lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief.” Unbelief comes out of the heart. Faith honors God and God honors faith.
