Why does anyone wear a mask? To hide their appearance. Why does anyone hide? So as not to be found. God choose to hide himself...for a time...in the human person of Jesus Christ. Why would God do this? God hides so as not to be found where the majority of people seek him. Humans often seek God in meaning, affirmation, fame, success...and whatever else we have determined to be of worth to ourselves. He will not be found there.
Instead he reveals himself where is not sought, Jesus Christ. It's a game of "hide-and-seek" but with much higher stakes...your eternal life. Jesus said to his friend, Philip, "Don't you know me...even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone one who has seen me has seen the Father." When God is unmasked, when you understand the person of Jesus and his mission...he gives you his victory. Join us as God is unmasked before your very eyes.
