Do you sometimes question whether Jesus is really the Son of God? Are there questions that arise from time-to-time in your mind about His divinity? Do those questions come and go depending on your situation, mood, or discussions with others?
If you have questions about Jesus, God, or Christianity in general, you are not alone. It is common to wonder if we are following the right path. But those questions are less about God and more about us. After all, we often question whether we have made the right decision in many circumstances.
Questioning in an effort to understand is noteworthy. We should seek the truth, regardless of what it is we have heard. In fact, if we sought the truth more often, we would spread far fewer rumors and there would be less gossip. Seeking the truth about Jesus is worthy of our time.
The Scripture of the Jewish prophets foretold the coming of the Messiah. The gospels proclaim Jesus as the Messiah as eyewitness accounts. The Apostle Paul proclaims Him as the Messiah throughout his letters to the various churches. God, the Father, proclaimed Jesus as the Son of God and put the Spirit of God upon Him.
We have heard the story of Jesus’ conception and birth. We have heard of Jesus’ baptism by John the Baptist. In both cases, the Holy Spirit is there. God executed his plan through the Holy Spirit to send Jesus into this world. The Father confirmed the Son through prophecy, spoken word, and action by the Spirit.
I pray we all seek to know the truth about Jesus. I pray we believe He is the Son of God. I pray each one of us see God at work through history to send his Son into the world as our Savior. Seek the truth. Read the prophecies. Hear the proclamation. Understand the Spirit’s work. Accept Jesus as your Savior.
“Here is my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen one in whom I delight;
I will put my Spirit on him,
and he will bring justice to the nations.”
