Today’s word for August 1, 2011

I will proclaim the LORD’s decree:
He said to me, “You are my son;
today I have become your father.
Psalms 2:7

The major doctrine which characterizes all monotheistic religious systems is the assertion that God is one. There are no other gods besides God, Creator of the universe. What distinguishes Christianity from other monotheistic position is that God is a both one and triune God in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is something that has been very difficult to understand for those who want to analyze everything under the approach of reason without stopping to think that reason is only one side of the coin, the other side being faith. In any case, although the term Trinity itself does not appear in the Bible, many portions of the word show and support this doctrine. Those who adverse the Trinitarian position claim that God does not and cannot bear children. It’s plain arrogance to say something about God that God has not revealed to man through his word. To deny that God has the Son is to deny all of God’s work carried out to save man from condemnation.

And you, who do you say is Jesus Christ? For you, is Jesus a prophet, a guru or God made man, the Savior of mankind? The author of the Epistle to the Hebrews under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit puts it this way: “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.” If this description do not clarify the matter, it means you have a thick blindfold over your eyes that keeps you from capturing the glorious reality of our wonderful Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God and his redemptive work. If you can understand it, only to God be the glory!
