Who Is Jesus: Do you know the One in whom you believe? If you believe in God, do you really know who He is, along with His Son and His Holy Spirit? Why is even accurately knowing about God important?
The entire Bible clearly supplies all the information we need in order to know about God,, His Son, and His Holy Spirit, so here, I will briefly outline the basic and fundamental facts from the Bible, God’s final written authority for us. Accurate knowledge about God and Jesus is vital to our salvation. Read on…
God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit comprise what we call the “Holy Trinity.” The Holy Trinity is a spiritual unity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are “one” in a spiritual sense. To understand this oneness, we need to understand what the Bible says about marriage. It says that when a man and woman marry, they become “one flesh”: “Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother, and will join with his wife, and they will be one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24, WEB) That doesn’t literally mean that they become one person. What it means is that they become “one” in spiritual unity. In the same way, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are “one” in spiritual unity; they are not literally “one God” in a physical sense. They share the same purpose, goals, and they work together harmoniously to achieve their plans.
Jesus wishes all Christians to achieve this oneness, as he indicated in his prayer to the Father: “Holy Father, keep them through your name which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are.” (John 17:11)
Please also carefully read John 17:20-23, which says:
“Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who believe in me through their word, that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that you sent me. The glory which you have given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, even as we are one; I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one… “
