Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness....."
So 26 verses into the Bible we see that God isn't singular. There is a Triune God, three persons but One God. There is God the Father, Jesus is the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit. I touched on this yesterday but it is important.
Jesus didn't just come into being that night in Bethlehem. Jesus is Eternal so He has always been and will always be!! Jesus just took human form 2000 years ago. Jesus was right there with God when He created the world and everything we know! How awesome is that!! Then when He came down, He probably was like woah look I made that :)
It puts into perspective another aspect of Jesus' life. He is part of the Creator and He came down to Earth to live with the created. That's wonderful news for us. We have a God who knows us by name and wants to be with us!! We can't choose our earthly family but we have a Heavenly Father who has chosen us.
So Jesus not only was there when the world was formed but when you were formed as well. He knows you inside and out so why not get to know Him the same way? How amazing would that be to state that you know Jesus that intimately?? Well guess what...WE CAN KNOW HIM!! Because of His Work on the Cross, we can have an intimate and personal relationship with our God. Not only does He desire that but also delights in it too.
It's one week til Christmas...how has studying Jesus' names impacted your view on Christmas this year? How can you incorporate more Jesus into your celebration this year?
With His Love,
