So guys, Easter has come and gone. I’ve really been musing a lot lately on exactly what I believe about Jesus Christ. This is an extremely important process for me, since it is at the root of all the decisions that I make in life, and these beliefs shape my world view. As such, for the next few days, I will be doing a series of posts entitled (Forgotten) Foundations of the Faith in which I will be revisiting some of my core Biblical beliefs concerning Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It will certainly be a reminder and encouragement to me, and I hope to you as well.
(Forgotten) Foundations Of The Faith – Part One:
I believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the Godhead – Specifically, the GODHEAD as described in the Holy Bible. That is to say, I Believe JESUS CHRIST is indeed GOD. The “GOD” of the Christian is actually more accurately called the GODHEAD. That is to say, God comprised of three (3) persons: The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit. This is confirmed in 1 John 5: 7, which states: “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.” While John 1:1 states: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Jesus Himself admitted to being God in several instances, one of these is documented in John 10:30, in which He said ” I and my Father are One”. Again, He revealed His deity in a telling statement documented in John 8:56- 58 “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.” Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?” Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
Accepting the deity of Jesus Christ is pivotal to any other understanding of the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ. If Jesus Christ is not God, then there is nothing that He can do for you, neither is He to be worshiped. However, since He is GOD, we can now look to Him to be Lord and Saviour as the Bible describes.
Look out for Part 2- I BELIEVE THAT GOD BECAME FLESH (i.e. a human being)
