We believe, by faith, that Jesus is the Son of God but there isn’t a lack of physical evidence either. In response to Thomas’ doubt in his resurrection demanding to see physical before he would believe Jesus replied, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." John 20:29
Jesus didn’t just believe that he was the Son of God with all the power of God he actually was. The bible records that Jesus had all of the biblical attributes of God. While pundits are going to claim that the bible is irrelevant and inaccurate it should be mentioned that way of thinking is inaccurate in itself. We’ll get to that at a later time but for right now we’ll stick to the bible as the ultimate authority on identifying Jesus as God incarnate.
|Attributes of God||Found in Christ|
|Omniscience (all-knowing)||John 16:30 the apostle John affirms of Jesus, “Now we can see that you know all things.|
|Omnipresence (all-present)||Jesus said in Matthew 28:20, “Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”|
|Omnipotence (all-powerful)||All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me,” Jesus said in Matthew 28:18|
|Eternality (no beginning or end)||John 1:1declares of Jesus, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”|
|Immutability (unchanging)||Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.|
What this means to us is that the Christ we’ve invited into our lives is the most powerful being ever. Having the power to know all, see all, overcome all and exists through all there isn’t any area of our lives that he can’t have a significant impact on. The question is, are we able to accept his Lordship by faith or do we, like Thomas, require physical proof before we believe? Regardless there is a blessing for believing, just a greater one for not requiring proof first.
