3) Jesus Is Both God And Man – Jesus was with God, being at His Father’s side, and was God from the beginning (John 1:1-3,14,18). To become a man He was conceived by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:20; Luke 1:35). It is wrong to deny the humanity of Christ (1 John 4:1-3) and it is wrong to deny the deity of Christ (Colossians 1:19; 2:9). Like the apostle Thomas, we must be able to say of Jesus, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28) Jesus is the perfect mediator between God and man because He is man and He is God. By proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Saviour, we are declaring that Jesus is God, the Second person of the Holy Trinity (Isaiah 43:11; 45:21; Hosea 13:4; Jude 4).
