Even those who lived in the first century wanted to know who Jesus’ was. But Jesus’ answer often seemed vague and veiled.
Read: John 10:22-33
This encounter occurred near the end of Jesus’ life. The people are curious about his identity; they want to know if he is the Messiah.
Jesus says the proof is in the pudding. Well, maybe not in those words, but that is what he meant. It is here that he declares that he and the Father (God) are one. And for this, the people moved to stone him.
In essence, Jesus is saying that the works he did, the miraculous signs he performed, bringing the realities of heaven to earth are all signs that he is God.
Whatever you believe about Jesus, it must include that he is God in the flesh simply because that is what Jesus declared. As I meditate on that, I am filled with awe. Colossians 1:4 says through Christ, peace was restored between God and all of creation. That means me.
And that is Good News! What keeps you from embracing Jesus as God Incarnate? What must happen for you to be able to do that?
