Knowing God By Seeing Jesus
We often think of God’s attributes in a fractured way. We may think that when God is being just, God is not being merciful; but we do not worship and serve a fractured God. God is all that He is all the time. He doesn’t change or shift depending on the attribute we see. God is one. So when Jesus said, “I and the Father are one” (John 10.30), was He saying that He was God? That’s certainly the way it was received by those who heard him. But He was also saying that He and the Father are one in will, in purpose and in nature. This Sunday from John 10.22-42, we will consider God’s unity/oneness – and what the means for us, His sheep.
