Thought for the week by pastor Diana Rutherford

 'But the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.'

John 1:18

This fabulous verse comes from the Gospel of John. John holds nothing back but declares the full truth about Christ. 

He is the one and only Son of God. Even although we are children of God and have been washed in His blood; there is only One who has come forth from the Father. 

Not only does Jesus Christ hold a unique position with God. He is God. Like a true son, He has taken on the very likeness, attributes of God, the very character and nature of God. He is the son of the father. 

He has a relationship with God that is different from everyone else. There is no one else who knows God better than Jesus Christ. He cannot be compared to any other religious leader because He is the only one who can truly say He is begotten of God. 

And the most fabulous news for us in all of this is that He is willing to share His knowledge of God with us. 

So let us take advantage of this wonderful opportunity that is given to us in our Christian faith; Christ has opened a door for us into the eternal realm so we may come and truly know and love God.
