WHO IS JESUS?
WHO IS JESUS?
Tuesday, January 23rd
(The Divinity Of The Lord Jesus Christ)
TO THE BIBLE: John 14:6-7
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.””
“Is Jesus really God?” Many still ask this one question today. They believe He was just a great prophet and teacher, but find it difficult to accept that He is Himself God, but He is. The Bible says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). That “Word” that the Bible says, “was God” became flesh—Jesus—and dwelt among us: “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).
Now, the prophecy that came forth before the birth of Jesus also foretold His divinity: ““Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us”” (Matthew 1:23). It was Jesus who walked the streets of Galilee, as “Emmanuel—God with us.” When the people saw Him, the mighty miracles and great signs and wonders that He did, notice what they said “...God has visited His people” (Luke 7:16).
The Bible tells us that the fullness of the Godhead bodily dwells in Jesus. So, when you see Jesus, you wouldn’t need to look out for the Holy Spirit or the Father; He’s the complete embodiment of Deity. Colossians 1:19 says, “...it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell.” So, Jesus is the outward expression of the Godhead. When we get to heaven, we won’t find the Father, Son and Holy Spirit sitting on different thrones; we’ll only find one seated in the fullness of God on the throne, and His name is Jesus (Revelation 7:17).
So today, celebrate the divinity of Jesus, His Lordship and rulership over your life. He’s the joy of heaven and hope of the earth. He’s the Most High, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is worthy of all praise, worship and adoration.
Revelation 1:12-18; Hebrews 1:3
Dear Lord Jesus, I thank you for the awesome privilege of being identified with you. It’s a great honour to know you, serve you, worship you and live for you. I boldly confess today that you’re my Lord and Master. You’re my everything, and the reason for my existence. Amen.
