The accusation that Jesus had made Himself the Son of God led...

Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill him, because he not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was his Father, making himself equal with God,
John 5: 18.

The accusation that Jesus had made Himself the Son of God led to His crucifixion at a later date. It is clear that the leaders of the people understood precisely what the Lord Jesus meant by the expression “Son of God”.

Jesus had called Himself the Son of God on many occasions, or confirmed it when the disciples designated Him as such (cf. John 5; 9:35; 11: 4; 1: 49; Matthew 16: 16). Jesus, however, never meant that God had given Him the title “Son of God” at any stage of His earthly life or adopted Him as Son, for He would have been no more than an exemplary or perfect human being.

The Lord Jesus declared that He had been the Son with the Father back in eternity, indeed that He was Himself God equal in essence with the Father. But since then people have differed concerning this claim of His.

True believers see Jesus as the eternal Son of God who became Man to lead us back to God. Jesus Christ came from God. God the Son left the glory of heaven. He is therefore the only One who can reveal God to us out of immediate, personal experience. In Him alone can we recognise God in His true being of love, patience and grace.

And through His atoning death Jesus is the only way to God.

Everything depends on how we stand with regard to the Son of God. The four evangelists present Him to us, so that we can decide. And His resurrection that is testified convincingly confirms that Jesus is truly the Son of God (cf. John 20: 30.31; Romans 1: 1 – 4).

Today‘s reading: 1 Samuel 25: 18 – 31 · Philippians 3: 8 – 16

Its amazing that some people who need deliverance do not realize their need; rather they look for others to deliver while they remain in their bondages.

LIVING RIGHT

A child of God is the light of the world. Light is the direct opposite of darkness. Everybody welcomes light with a shout of joy. Where there is light, hidden agendas are revealed. Jesus expects us to prove Him right by living according to His description of us. The implication of being called a child of God is...More
