John 1 is one of the most important chapters of the Bible simply because it teaches so clearly that Jesus is God! Read the first verse slowly, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” Then jump to verse 14, “and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” Jesus is God! Big deal, you might say. “What does it matter if I believe that Jesus is God or not. I mean cant I believe that He was a really kind person and miracle worker, but not believe that He was God, and still be saved?” Many people talk like this or believe like this. The answer to that question is, “NO!” If you believe in a Jesus who is not God, then you are not believing the Jesus of the Bible. You are believing a false god, and can therefore, not be saved. Jesus had to be God or else He could not have borne all the wrath that was due to us. Is your vision of Jesus as it should be? Beware of thinking too little of the One who made you!
