Powerful words

Words matter.

What we say, Jesus taught us, shows us the state of our heart. So, we should be mindful of the words we use.

There are no more important words about Jesus than these:

“Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.” (John‬ ‭8:58‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

In these words Jesus, the man born of a woman, provides a statement as to His very being: He is God.

The perfect God-Man.

Without mixture. Without sin. Humble. Always obedient.

The ONLY fitting sacrifice for us.

Thanks be to God. Jesus was able.

He made to way to God possible, not through our attempts at religiosity but through Him alone. He is the only way.

Thanks be to God. Jesus did.

Now, for we who are IN Christ Jesus, there is no condemnation.

Thanks be to God for these powerful words.
