Jesus Was Revealed as God’s Son
1 John 5:6- And Jesus Christ was revealed as God’s Son by his baptism in water and by shedding his blood on the cross not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit, who is truth, confirms it with his testimony (NLT).
Quite often we are told by our Muslim friends that Jesus was only a prophet. Sometime they even tell us that it was never expressly written in the bible that Jesus is the Son of God. I guess our theme text above settles that argument.
My dearly beloved brethren, we know that Jesus Christ came from God and He is God. He is in the trinity where there is God the father, God the son and God the Holy Ghost. This same Jesus was with God in the beginning creating the world (John 1). In John 3:16 we are told that God loved us so much that he sent Jesus to come to the earth to die for our sins and to give us eternal life; which is the same kind of life that He has. That is why we can boldly say that as he is so are we in this world (1 John 1:17).
It is important that we understand this because it will go a long way to determine the quality of life that we live on this earth. Jesus is indeed the son of God. The one who came from God and is God. As a result of his death, burial and resurrection, his name has been highly exalted above every other name both in the heavenly and on earth. We have been given the right to use this name to bring down every powers or authority both on this earth and in the heavenly.
Walk with this understanding and you will never have a need to fear.
