What are we really saying when we confess “that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God” (John 20:31)?
God keeps His promises.
God kept saying through His prophets that the Messiah would come. And at the right time He did.
Jesus (and not someone else) is the Messiah.
God had never previously revealed His name. But the very first verse of the New Testament announces: “The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah . . . .”
Jesus is both human and divine.
Mary was His mother. But no human father was involved in His conception (Luke 1:30-35).
“Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.” He died, but God raised Him.
So . . .
When we confess Him as the Christ, the Son of God, we are saying a lot more than we may realize.
And the wonderful thing is, it’s all true!
