The Lord God Almighty Gives – Jesus Christ Gives
God has given and gives Himself to the world.
He gives Himself through His Son Jesus Christ.
Jesus is the revelation of God . . . the image of the invisible God . . . the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form . . . the exact representation of God’s nature . . . Jesus is the Son of God and the Lord God Almighty (John 1, Colossians 1, Hebrews 1).
God has offered Himself and His glory to every person.
He and His glory are beyond words. He is indescribable and inexpressible.
What is He like?
He is the most wonderful, most beautiful Person in the universe.
He is the treasure Jesus spoke about (Matthew 13:44).
There is no comparison to Him. His worth and value is infinite, inconceivable and beyond human comprehension. In Him is everything. Outside of Him, there is nothing.
He is so powerful, if someone receives Him and walks with Him while they are on the earth, they will live forever. They will fellowship with Him forever in heaven, which is filled with the presence of God, the presence of Jesus. They will never die.
God has chosen to give Himself in totality to every person, forever.
He has chosen to give every person the totality of all that they are.
He has chosen to believe in every person, more than they can comprehend.
There is one choice He cannot and will not make for a person: the choice to believe in Him.
God has given Jesus Christ to mankind eternally in three ways:
1. God gave His Son as a man, who lived on earth like us and died for the world.
2. Since Jesus died, God has given Jesus to the world, to every person, through the Holy Spirit (John 14:16).
3. He will give Jesus Christ to the saints through the Holy Spirit, forever (John 14:16).
Jesus Christ is the Lord God Almighty
Jesus Christ is Lord.
He is the Son of God and the Lord God Almighty.
Those who know Him have eternal life, which is knowing the only true God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent (John 17:3).
If they continue on with Jesus, they will live forever.
Outside of Jesus, there is nothing.
Apart from Jesus, someone can do nothing.
Without Jesus, someone has nothing. Even if they gain the whole world, they possess nothing.
Without Jesus, a person is spiritually dead. If they die without Jesus Christ, they go to eternal death.
Eternal life continues forever in heaven, a place of absolute glory.
Heaven is God’s home, full of the glorious splendor of His majesty and infinitely more.
Those who know Jesus as Lord have the divine nature and life of God.
They have the supernatural, abundant, zoe life.
They have the Almighty God living in and through them – and all around them.
Those who know Jesus can accomplish things that will last forever. They can store up treasures in heaven. They can do even greater things than Jesus did.
Tragically, anyone who does not know Jesus as Lord and Savior when they die will go to eternal death, which continues forever in hell, the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
