Jesus Has Always Existed

“She brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger….” (Luke 2:7).

“…This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well-pleased.” (Matthew 3:17).

“…This is My beloved Son…hear Him!” (Matthew 17:5).

Luke 2:7; Matthew 3:17; 17:5


Ponder This

Jesus never had an identity crisis. He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). Jesus never said, “I am ONE way to God.” He didn’t say, “I am A life.” Jesus said, “I am THE way, I am THE truth, I am THE life.” And God says, “He is My dear Son.”

In the Gospel of John, Jesus said, “Before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58). Not “I was,” but “I am.” He is the great I AM. He didn’t have His beginning at Bethlehem. He never had a beginning. He has always existed.

The One who created the universe not only has this whole world in His hands, but He has the past, the present, and the future in His hands.

Practice This

Do you know Jesus? Do you adore Him? Take a moment to worship Him. “Sing, choirs of angels! Sing in exaltation. Sing, all ye citizens of Heaven above! Glory to God, all glory in the highest. O come, let us adore Him. O come, let us adore Him. O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!”
