For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”2 Peter 1:16-17
The Father and the Son
Jesus Christ is God’s Son. God has all authority. He sent His Son Jesus to the earth to be a sacrifice for the sins of His people. The sins were so great that nothing else would do. So Jesus became the Lamb of God, The one who was slain for our iniquities. This pleased the Lord, not in a way that made him happy, but instead pleased him to carry out his plan. So he spoke about his son and said, This is my Son, with whom I am well pleased.
You cannot be a Christian without believing in the authority of Jesus Christ, the Son and God the Father. It is the foundation of the faith. Praise Him today for His authority and that God sent Jesus to earth for your sins!
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for my salvation that only comes from you! You have all authority and you are the authority in my life. Amen.
