The Apostles' Creed, Son of God

Jesus was an amazing teacher. I’m not referring to his style -- though at times it was direct and other times very nebulous. I mean his teaching was amazing, but being a good teacher doesn't mean that we should follow him. The reason that Christians build their lives around Jesus and his teaching is because of who we believe he was and is, the anointed Son of God.

In the next part of the Apostles’ Creed, “I believe…in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord…” there are two concepts. The first is that Jesus is the Christ, or the One that the Father anointed (which is the translation of the word “Christ”). The second is that He is God’s Son. Both of these concepts are essential to us as believers, because if he isn’t the Son of God, then his sacrifice didn’t atone, and he has no power to forgive: and if God didn’t anoint him, then he acted alone.

So, come Sunday and consider what it means to believe in Jesus, the anointed Son of God.
