MEMORY VERSE:

 

1 Timothy 3:16

_(AMP) And great and important and weighty, we confess, is the hidden truth (the mystic secret) of godliness. He [God] was made visible in human flesh, justified and vindicated in the [Holy] Spirit, was seen by angels, preached among the nations, believed on in the world, [and] taken up in glory._

 

A good number of bible verses and testimonies about the personality Jesus, who lived over 2000 years ago, testify that He is indeed God made flesh. Since we’re humans, it is understandable when there are diverse opinions on a subject in Scripture. That, notwithstanding, never makes Christianity a false world view, but rather plunges the thirsty in heart to search deep into the Holy Scriptures for the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to him (John 5:39).

 

The truth of the deity of Jesus is a foundational truth to the Christian faith. A denial of this truth (foundation) makes the building (worldview) shaky, since it is the foundation that determines how strong a building is.

 

Discussing the Bible with a friend who doubted the deity of Jesus, I made him read 1 Timothy 3:16 from his version of the Bible. After reading, he was surprised that the description of the personality referred to as “God” in that verse, was a perfect description of no one but Jesus. He was speechless for a moment. It was obvious his unbelief in Christ’s deity was challenged

 

It is no surprise because, even some Jews find it hard to confess Jesus as Lord and the One true God because  that will mean Jesus is Jehovah, Adonai, Yahweh. That will mean he was the ONE that appeared to Moses in the burning bush, fed the Jews with manna, gave the ten commandments, and so on. That’s too much for the Jew to accept, but He is indeed God.

 

(For further Reading: Colossians 2:9, John 14:9, Acts 10:36)

 

PRAYER: I acknowledge You Jesus as the One true God, the basis on which my faith is built in Jesus’ name Amen.

 

*INSIGHT:* The truth of the deity of Jesus is a foundational truth to the Christian faith. A denial of this truth makes the building shaky.
