The deity of Jesus Christ has been a long standing argument in many religious circles. Some believe that He is one of the prophets while others believe that He is one of the angels of God. It seems to boggle their mind how God can become man. We have to get it straight that the incarnation of Christ is true. When Jesus came down to this earth He told His disciples, “If you have seen me, you have seen the Father (God).” The book of Hebrews says that Jesus Christ is the express image of the Father. Like a rubber stamp you will not be able to make out clearly what is written on the stamp.
However, if you put it in some ink and press the stamp on a plain sheet of paper the inscription can be read clearly. Jesus has been given a much better name than the angels. The angels are instructed to worship Him as they worship God. He is as everlasting as the Father is. He is truly God.
“Having become by so much better than the angels, as he hath inherited a more excellent name than they.” - Hebrews 1:4 (ESV)
LESSONS/ LIFE APPLICATION:
It will be unthinkable for the president of a nation to abandon his official residence and privileges and go down to an obscure village and live there. It is likely that after some time, people will doubt that He is really a President. Such was the humility displayed by Jesus Christ. We are to display such humility to others in order to reach them with the gospel.
Father, I pray that I will see you in Jesus Christ as clearly as you are without any shadow of doubt about your deity. Amen.
MEMORY VERSE FOR THE WEEK:
You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more that Your companions. - Hebrews 1:9 (ESV)
