Jesus Is God

by Rick
Today’s Scripture: John 17
Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” – John 20:28
A friend’s cat came home one day proudly carrying a chipmunk in its mouth. My friend grabbed the cat and forced it to drop the chipmunk. She then picked up the poor animal, stroked it gently, said some soothing words, and put it into a box for recovery.
After an hour or so, the chipmunk seemed alert, so my friend reached in to check, and the chipmunk bit her finger to the bone! Why? Because my friend couldn’t communicate with chipmunks! While this lady had saved its life and meant it only good, the chipmunk didn’t get the message.
That’s why Jesus became a man–to communicate with us and be the bridge between God and man. Jesus Christ is God. He claimed to be, and those who knew Him best said He was. He did the things that only God can do. But He was also man. The Bible says He was God in the flesh, God’s son, a descendant of David on the human level, but the Son of God.
God has been here, and that’s the good news. Jesus said, “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9). Friend, let me tell you something: If you believe that, it will change your life!
Lord, I bow my heart to You and confess that You are my Redeemer and my God. Amen.
To Ponder
Every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (see Philippians 2:9-10).
