Who is Jesus?
John 1:3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Jesus, the Savior of the world, the One who was sent to redeem mankind, is the Creator of mankind. How so? If there is only one God and He exists as three persons (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) and He has existed from eternity…then how is Jesus not the Creator?
The apostle John comes right out of the gates with his theology. No lineages, no birth story in a manger in Bethlehem – right to the point – Jesus is God. “In the beginning was the Word (Jesus, the logos), and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” (emphasis and parenthetical point mine) Wait, it gets even more clear: “All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.” Don’t believe John? How about Paul? “For by Him (Jesus), all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible…” (Colossians 1:15).
How does it change your view of God to think about how the God who created us is the very same God who came to save us? Our Creator is our Redeemer. The One who holds all things together is the One who gave His life that we might be with Him. How’s that for love? Does it change how you see Jesus? He’s not just some baby we celebrate on Christmas or just some guy with a beard who taught good moral lessons. It all began with Him. And it all ends with Him.
