The Scriptures proclaim Jesus to be God. Here is an example:
…God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself… ~2Co 5:19
Also, God’s name shows me Jesus is God: YAHWEH-OSHEA. I’ll talk more about this on another day.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus ~1Ti 2:5
I’m so glad that Jesus is human. It makes it so much easier to talk to Him.
This is probably a very different concept for many people, so here are a couple of examples from the Bible that show where I am coming from:
…before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour. ~Is 43:10-11
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law…~Ga 3:13
God says in the example from the Old Testament that He is the only saviour. But the second example from the New Testament says Christ has redeemed or saved us. What gives? My conclusion is that Jesus is God! It all fits so perfectly.
Thank You, Lord, for revealing Yourself in Your Word. Thank You for being who You are, and making it easier for me to relate to You. ~Amen.
