Jesus Is God
 

Think about these questions. Have you heard of Jesus? What do you know about Jesus? The following will help you to know who is Jesus.

1. Colossians 2:9
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form

This scripture says that Jesus is God in the flesh. All that you see in God you see in Jesus. That means Jesus is God.That means Jesus should have all the qualities of God in Heaven. We are going to see that in the following 3 passages.

2. Mark 4:35-41
35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, "Let us go over to the other side."
36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him.
37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped.
38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, "Teacher, don't you care if we drown?"
39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
40 He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?"
41 They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!"


C: Jesus has the power to control the wind and the waves.

Q: Who has the power to control natural forces? God. That means Jesus is God.

He is All-powerful.

3. Mark 1:40-42
40 A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, "If you are willing, you can make me clean."
41 Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!"
42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.


Jesus can HEAL any disease. He has power to heal any man.

Jesus like God is full of compassion. He loved the nobodyís. He touched the leper. He has compassion on the poor.

4. Luke 7:36-39, 48-50
36 Now one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, so he went to the Pharisee's house and reclined at the table.
37 When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume,
38 and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.
39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, "If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is--that she is a sinner."

48 Then Jesus said to her, "Your sins are forgiven."
49 The other guests began to say among themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?"
50 Jesus said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."


This woman was a very sinful woman because the whole town seemed to know about her sin.

Yet Jesus showed love and compassion to this woman. Jesus loves sinners!

Who alone can forgive sin? Only God can. Jesus forgave this woman like God. Who is Jesus? Jesus is God. He forgave this womanís sins. He can forgive all of your sins.

5. 1 John 3:5
But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin.

Jesus came to take away our sins! Your sins and my sins.

Did Jesus do any sin in his life? No. In whom do we find no sin? God alone. Then who is Jesus? I believe he is God.

Only someone who is without sin can save somebody who is in sin.

To be God, He must be without any sin. Anyone who has even one sin cannot be God.

What about other gods? Are they without sin? Are they perfect? If they are not perfect can they be God?

Even though they may done much good is not enough to be God. Because they are not perfect they cannot be called God.

6. Deuteronomy 5:7
"You shall have no other gods before me.

God commands us not to worship any other Gods but one, because in the Bible there is only ONE God and not many gods!

7. Acts 4:12
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."

Jesus is the only name by which the whole world can be saved. There is no other name!

Only through Jesus name you will be saved, you will go to Heaven.

8. John 14:6
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Jesus is saying He is the WAY, The ONLY WAY. Means there is no other way to Heaven. You can try but there is no other way.

Jesus is the TRUTH, the complete TRUTH. All religions have some truth, but the complete truth you find in Jesus.

Jesus is the LIFE. Only through Jesus we have eternal life.

CONCLUSION:

Today what did you learn about Jesus? Who is Jesus? What about other gods? Do you want to follow Jesus? If YES, then you have to follow him only. You canít worship him and other gods at the same time.

What do people call those people who follow Jesus? Christians. What will people call you if you follow Jesus? Christian. You have to get comfortable with that.
