My Lord and My God!
My Lord and My God!
All of God’s word is our guide through this life. It is God’s eternal testimony to us to point out truth and falsehood. It is vital to pay close attention to everything God teaches us in the Bible because there are so many false teachings floating around in this world. The apostle John warns us in 1 John 4:1-3,
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.
Churches that claim that Jesus was just a good teacher, philosopher, or miracle worker need to be avoided. Others never talk about our sinful condition — but only how much God loves us and how to be successful in life.
All of God’s word emphasizes that Jesus is our Lord and God — true man and true God — whose sacrifice on the cross has paid for all our sins. The apostle Thomas fully realized that when he first saw our risen Savior’s wounds and said to Jesus in John 20:28,
My Lord and my God!
When Isaiah describes our Savior coming to deliver us from our sins, he said in Isaiah 63:16,
You, O LORD, are our Father,
Our Redeemer from of old is Your name.
Jesus Himself said in John 8:58,
Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.
Jesus is not “a god”, as some claim. He is the LORD God. Revelation 17:14 points out that,
He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.
So, we joyfully say, “Hallelujah! Lord Jesus, You are our risen Lord and Savior.”
A Christian devotional to glorify the LORD of lords and GOD of gods.
Pray for our country.
The LORD made this day, let us rejoice and be glad in Him.
The word of the LORD is tried;
He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones;
Praise is becoming to the upright.
How blessed are those who dwell in Thy house!
They are ever praising Thee.
Just as a father has compassion on his children,
So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Glory in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the LORD be glad.
Not that I have already obtained it, or have already become perfect, but I press on in order that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
