Jesus- A good man or God?
My Brethren, that is the question I pose to you today! We live in a society in which we base our judgement on logic and visual reasoning. In this day and time, we need to have a discerning ear and learn to be led by the Holy Spirit. Not everyone who has the title "Rev" next to his/her name is truly called of God. It is a shame that many so-called men/women of God cast doubt on the Virgin Birth. Brethren, if the Virgin Birth wasn't real, then the death of Jesus was in vain and we are still in our sins. No, a thousand times NO!
When a dispute arises on who the father of the child is, they go by the blood. The blood lays aside all doubt on who the father is. The same with Jesus. His Father was GOD ALMIGHTY!!! His blood is the main foundation of our Salvation, undefiled by sinful flesh. Yes, there is no doubt that most everyone would agree that Jesus was a GOOD MAN, but my friend, he was more than a GOOD MAN-- He was God come in the flesh and he died for your sins and mines !!! (John 1:1,14)
To better understand this, let's look at the following-" And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good?there is none good but one,that is,God...(Matt 19:15-17) for the sake of time, I have deliberately cut short this verse to make a point. I want to focus on the word "GOOD." Why did Jesus refuse to be called "Good?"
Many have used this to say that we are no good and just a worm, because if Jesus did not call himself Good, how dare you do otherwise? Then how come the word says we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (II Cor 5:21) Based on this, this has to go a little deeper upon further study. What Jesus was, basically, saying was that he was God almighty, not just a good man. This man had the wrong approach when he came to Jesus.
Friends, how we approach God mattters. Jesus is our mediator and we need to learn to be identified with him. So, in this day, I challenge you to became acquainted with his deity and watch him make a difference in your life.
