Is Jesus Your Lord and God?

Is Jesus your Lord and God?

And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. John 20:28

The disciple Thomas became famous for asking Jesus a lot of questions, which he inherited the nickname “Doubting Thomas”, but after Jesus was resurrected and he revealed himself to Thomas, he called him his Lord and God. Jesus did not rebuke him, instead said that Blessed are those who don’t see but still believe. Is Jesus your Lord and God?

Jesus has revealed his divinity throughout the Bible, when the disciples asked to see God, he told them since they have seen him, they have seen God (John 14:9) and Jesus told them that he and God are one (John 10:30).  Paul also revealed to us that Jesus is the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15) and Jesus is God manifested in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16)

Many times we feel that God is so far away and he could never understand our lives, but this is actually opposite. God became flesh in Jesus and dwelt among us (John 1:14) He lowered himself below the angels (Hebrews 2:7) so he could be with us and save us from our sins. God knows your pain (John 11:35) and the temptations of the flesh (Matthew 26:41). But despite it all Jesus was willing to sacrifice himself to save us from death. He gave himself as a ransom for us all (1 Timothy 2:6)

The old testament prophecies reveal a child will be born unto us (Jesus) and he will be The Almighty God and The Everlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6 KJV). And he will be called Immanuel, meaning God is with us.

So I ask you is Jesus Your Lord and God? Remember Jesus said nobody comes to God except through him, and there is no salvation without Jesus Amen

    Thomas was also the one who said, “Let’s go and die with Him” as Jesus was heading to Jerusalem. I’m thinking he was just such a disappointed realist. Also, I like your Gravatar bio about how being a Christian is a relationship with God: “And this is salvation, to You, the One true God, and Jesus Christ Whom You have sent.” (John 17:3) Have a wonderful holiday!
