Is Jesus Christ God’s Son?

The easy answer is yes, Jesus is the Son of God, but at the same time, Jesus is God. We need to understand when answering this question that the Bible describes God for us in a way that we can grasp.

Isaiah 55:9 says, “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” However, relationships and family order are things we can grasp and understand, and God has used those things to reveal Himself to us. Get your Bible and let’s look into this a little deeper.

(Please take note that you will need your Bible for references.) The number one way to have a strong family is to make sure each member of the family is in the proper position.

They have their own individual roles as well, but position-wise they are next in line because they are one. (See Ephesians 5:31.) The children come after that and then any extended family. Within these positions are responsibilities for each party.
