Jesus, the Son of God; His Deity Portrayed.

Friday, March 22, 2013

Good Morning All,

Below you will find a study taken from the Series, Portraits of Christ, from my Symphony of Prayer Newsletter I write monthly for the congregation of my home church.

We are embarking on a new series entitled Portraits of Christ. This study is an introduction of the lessons we will look at on the Character and the Work of Christ through the Gospel of John and the Titles of Christ through Isaiah’s Messianic Prophecies. Each of the 21 chapters of John contains a portrayal of some aspect of the “Character & or Work of Christ.

This lesson we will look at Jesus, the Son of God; His deity (humanity) portrayed. John 1:1-14

Devotional: Introduction

The Deity of Christ John 1:1-2

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.

The Word Becomes Flesh: John 1:14

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 10:30 I and My Father are one.”

John 1:1-2 describes the deity (humanity) of Christ. Jesus the precious Son of God literally put on the Robes of Humanity for you and for me. He came down from Glory, walked this earth to fulfill the Will of His Father to give us abundant life, a life rich in God’s Grace and Truth! Have you begun this abundant life’s journey? You can by inviting Jesus the Son of God to reign in your heart and life.

Closing Thoughts

To re-cap our study we have embarked on a new series that will be divided into 2 areas of study: Part 1: The Characteristics of Christ through the Book of John and Part 2: The Titles of Christ through the Messianic Prophecies described in the Book of Isaiah.

John’s Gospel takes us on a pictorial journey describing the characteristics and work of Christ; it is through this study that we will hopefully be able to learn from Christ, how He lived & responded in the face of adversity and apply the same truths to our own everyday lives and be the Men and Women God would have us be in our homes, work places and the communities in which we live.

Next Lesson: Portraits of Christ/Jesus the Divine Teacher. John 3:2-21. This study will teach us principles of Discipleship and Spiritual Vision.

    Thank you for the devotion and the thoughts. I am indeed a Christian and so is my husband! We have NO doubts where we will be spending eternity! I don't want my husband to leave me, but I will be at peace because I know he will be with our Lord and Saviour! That gives me comfort!!
Our emoticon are one, but mine will be emoticon when the Lord calls him home.
