For Further Meditation
For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell. — COLOSSIANS 1:19
The Word of God plainly teaches that our Redeemer is divine. These divine offices are ascribed to Him:
Creator (Col. 1:16) . . . Mediator (1 Tim. 2:4,5) . . . Head of the Church (Col. 1:16-24) . . . Savior (2 Peter 3:2) . . . Judge (2 Tim. 4:1) . . . Preserver (Heb. 1:1-3) . . . Life-Giver (John 10:28) . . . Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36) . . . Resurrection and Life (John 11:25).
Divine character is ascribed to Christ. Ordinary men are sinners by nature, but Christ Jesus is not an ordinary man. He is:
Holy by Birth (Luke 1:35) . . . Righteous (Isa. 53:11) . . . Faithful (Isa. 11:5) . . . Truth (John 14:6) . . . Just (John 5:30) . . . Guileless (1 Peter 2:22) . . . Sinless (2 Cor. 5:21) . . . Spotless (1 Peter 1:19) . . . Innocent (Matt. 27:4) . . . Harmless (Heb. 7:26) . . . Obedient to God (Heb. 5:8-10) . . . Obedient to Earthly Parents (Luke 2:51) . . . Zealous (John 2:17) . . . Meek (Matt. 11:29) . . . Lowly in Heart (Matt. 11:29) . . . Merciful (Heb. 2:17) . . . Patient (Isa. 53:7) . . . Long-Suffering (1 Tim. 1:16) . . . Compassionate (Matt. 15:32) . . . Benevolent (Acts 10:38) . . . Loving (John 15:13) . . . Self-Denying (2 Cor. 8:9) . . . Humble (Phil. 2:5-11) . . . Resigned (Luke 22:42) . . . Forgiving (Luke 23:34).
Confession: Jesus Christ is worthy. Thank God for this Worthy One. Thank God for this Divine One. Thank God that One who is the Creator would come to earth from glory to be the Mediator, the Head of the Church, the Savior, the Judge, the Preserver, the Life-Giver, the Lord and Savior. And thank God, this Worthy One is my Lord.
