The Image of God

George said, "God is short and fat."
Nick said, "No, He's tall and lean." 
Len said, "With a long white beard." 
"No," said John, "He's shaven clean." 
Will said, "He's black," Bob said, "He's white." 
Rhonda Rose said, "He's a She." 
I smiled but never showed 'em all 
The autographed photograph God sent to me.

--Shel Silverstein

God did indeed send an autographed image of Himself - Jesus Christ.

"Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation." (Col. 1:5)

I will appoint Him my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth." (Psalm 89:27)
