The Son of God



Scripture: John 10:31-39
March 27, 2015

So how can you say that the one whom the Father has made holy and sent into the world insults God because he said, ‘I am God’s Son’? John 10:36

What does it mean to call Jesus the Son of God?  

Most of us have learned some doctrinal answer to this question.  But at the heart of it is a request not to see if we can repeat some memorized statement but to know what it means to claim Jesus as God’s Son.  And that takes more than reading our bibles, it also takes experiencing the presence of God in community, it takes time in prayer and in growth in God’s Spirit.

It especially means even in the face of threatened persecution, to remain steadfast in your claim of who Jesus is.

Prayer:  God I thank you for the gift of your Son in my life.  Amen.
