And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. (1 John 5:20)
Today's Morsel: There are three religious groups that believe in one God. Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. And of those three groups, only a few realize that Jesus is God. Howbeit is there not in every man that knowledge? As Paul told king Agrippa, this thing was not done in a corner. This revelation of truth wasn't hidden. Jesus revealed Himself to all His disciples, and they in turn revealed Him to the world. They all knew He was God. Paul told Timothy, "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory" (1 Timothy 3:16). Matthew even reached back to reveal Isaiah's prophecy as to who Jesus was. "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS" (Matthew 1:23-25). Who do you say that Jesus is? And Jesus said unto them, "Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins... " (John 8:23-24). No one can forgive sins but God. And the Apostle John wrote, "And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life." Do you realize who He is?
Sing: Light of the world You stepped down into darkness, open my eyes let me see. Beauty that made this heart adore You, hope of a life spent with You.
