Mighty God

“For unto us a child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God…” Isaiah 9:6

Isaiah gives us another title of the promised Messiah, Mighty God. This title speaks of the deity of Christ. Jesus is God! Every attribute that belongs to God (i.e., Mighty), belongs to Jesus because He is the second person of the Trinity.

During His time on the earth Jesus was a great teacher, but He was more than that. He was a benevolent servant, but He was more than that. He was a moral example, but He was more than that. He was (and is) God in human flesh! He came to this earth as the mighty God to perfectly fulfill the law, die on the cross for our sins, and defeat death itself by rising from the dead.

His perfect obedience points to His deity because it reminds us that He was not bound by a sin nature. His death on the cross points to His deity because He was able to pay the infinite debt that you and I owe against an infinitely holy God. Only one who is infinite (God) could pay that price fully. His resurrection points to His deity because it proved that Jesus was who He said He was and it proved that He could do what He said He could do.

Spend a few moments worshipping Jesus, our Mighty God!
