Jesus is the Messiah. He is God. He has revealed God. There is one God.
These theological truths are at the heart of our Sunday Morning Bible Study this week as we begin seeing the whole story of the Bible come together. John, the Gospel writer, begins this account of Jesus by stating that “He was” before time began and that all is created through Him. John uses the word “Logos” which to the Jewish readers conveyed the idea of the Holy Scriptures, while the Greek readers would think of universal and eternal reason. The word Logos only begins to encapsulate who Jesus/God is…but it is a great start.
Throughout this Gospel, we see that Jesus is the Messiah, that He and God are the same, and that He is God become flesh. John states that theological truth in John1:14 and repeats it throughout his writings. If you want to know God, then look to Jesus for He is the “One and Only.”
Knowing God means that we have a relationship with Him. It requires that we follow and obey Him. Such was the case in Matthew 4, when Jesus invites Andrew, Peter, James and John to follow Him and make the bringing of others to Him as their primary focus.
If you want to know the secrets of the universe, the meaning of life, the answers to the life after death…then look to Jesus. He provides the way by which we become “His children” and will inherit eternal life which is indescribable.
Things to Ponder:
What is your focus in life? Is to make money, have a good time, or share the hope of Jesus with others?
Throughout this day, think about how you can express your faith in Jesus through actions or words.
Who does Christ want you to interact with today?
