Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Only Begotten of the Father
    And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
    and we beheld His glory,
    the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,
    full of grace and truth.
    John 1:14
    Jesus is the Only Begotten of the Father, which means He comes from the Father and is the unique personification of the Father. Jesus’ being begotten of the Father means that He is the expression of the Father. John 1:14 emphasizes Jesus’ characteristic of being “the Word,” which means that the message and meaning of the Word reflects the Father. When the Father wants to make an utterance to the world, He does it through Jesus, the Word.
    Lord Jesus, I come asking You to teach me what the Father in Heaven is like. I want to love the Father more than ever, but I must know Him better to love Him better.
    Jesus is the Only Begotten of the Father, which means that He is just like the Father. If you want to see what the Father is like, look at Jesus in the Scriptures. If you want to know how the Father relates to you, look at how Jesus related to people. If you want to approach the Father, go to Him through His Son. To know the Father better, know Jesus.
    Lord Jesus, I look to You to see the Father. I know that the Father is loving, because I see how You loved people. I know the Father is powerful, because I see Your awesome power in creating the universe and in transforming individuals. I know the Father is kind and gentle, because You are patient with me and forgiving toward me. Amen.
