Who is Jesus anyways?
Ever wonder about Jesus and how He could be God? Let’s be for real, we have all thought about it in some capacity. When we start on our walk of faith with the trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), we question the possibilities. It’s human nature.
From my studies I have gathered that you can’t put a limit on God or His capabilities. Think about it: if He created the universe and split the Red Sea for Moses, why couldn’t He come to earth as a human?
Why would He want to subject himself to our broken world and die a horrible death though?
God loved his creation so much He would die for our love in return. How many God’s do you know that have that story? As humans, our sin is what separates us from the perfect and holy God. So in order to save us from death, He came to earth to rescue us.
God of Abraham (or God of the old testament, or God of the Jews, or God of the Universe) made a covenant with Abraham choosing his offspring to be the chosen people of God. In a way to reach all people God sent his son Jesus to earth to be an offering, a way for all Jew and Gentile (non-Jew) to create a new covenant.
So…basically the bible says that God is spirit and God sent his son Jesus, and that Jesus is God, and Jesus is the son of God, and Jesus left us the Holy spirit when He departed. Lot’s going on here (that’s where the trinity comes in: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Three in one.).
Why not come to earth and become the most famous person in history? Jesus changed the course of history. Creating a new way to heaven. It was a direct path through him to the father.
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me.” - John 14:6
He liked to lay it down hot and heavy…. I like it.
Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. I know we can’t grasp this, but Jesus brought God’s character, majesty and very essence of God to a human body even though God is spirit.
“God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” - John 4:24
True worship is a matter of the heart. It demands more than just outward motions, it is an inner submission of oneself to God. At the same time, Jesus willingly stripped himself of the privileges of deity (God). Christ in human form was both God and man - two distinct natures united in one person.
Don’t believe that? That’s ok, but if you believe in God, you need to understand Jesus. They go together and if you want to align your belief in God with the Bible written word of truth, learn about Jesus and his purpose.
When I started my walk of faith, I connected with God, I did not connect with Jesus. During my faith journey with God, I have learned more and more about the person of Jesus. As I write this to you now, it is only in my study and writing that I find answers. I’m just sharing my findings with you. I’m still seeking, I'm still learning and I’m still asking God to reveal his character to me.
I’m opting in and I’m committed to spending the rest of my life seeking who and what God is. I’d love to be the one to invite you into this.
