Who Loves Me? Part 1

Updated: Apr 15, 2023

Discovering the True Nature of Jesus and His Sacrifice for Us


At Scarlet Note, our theme since January has been "I'm Loved." For the past six weeks, Pastor Jose has joined us in exploring this topic. Over the next several Sundays, our aim is to build the framework for getting you to know the One who loves you. Many believers know a lot about God, but don't truly know God. Knowing God and knowing about God are two very different things. Our heart's desire is for you to know you're loved because you know the One who loves you.


The Difference Between Knowing About God and Knowing God:

It is very possible to live the life of a Christian and still not know Christ. You might know the words of Jesus but not know Jesus Himself. You can even walk with Jesus and still not know Him. This was the case with Philip, one of the 12 disciples of Jesus (John 14:6-10).


Many Christians understand that Jesus came to earth to take away the sin of the world, to sacrifice His life in place of ours, and because God loved the world and didn't want anyone to perish. However, very few people speak about how Jesus on earth revealed God to humanity.


Jesus:

The Incarnation of God: Jesus was not a watered-down, stripped version of God. He was 100% man and 100% God. This belief is often called the "Incarnation," which simply means God was personified in Jesus. Jesus was the embodiment of God. The Good News of Jesus is that God was here in the flesh for the world to see, hear, and touch (John 1:14).


Jesus as the "Son" of God should not be understood in a biological sense. Instead, it is a term used by God to communicate to us, His lesser creations, the value of what He sent to earth (Hebrews 2:5-15).


Knowing Jesus, Knowing the Father: Jesus on earth revealed the Father no one could see, the God of creation, the righteousness of God, and the glory of God (Colossians 1:15-23). He is supreme and the ultimate authority, yet in the Father's love for us, Jesus humbled Himself and took on human form to meet us where we are in our humanity (Philippians 2:6-8).


The One who loves you put it all on the line because He thought you were worth the sacrifice. Our Father in heaven gave the ultimate gift, so all you have to do is call on His name (Romans 10:10, 13).


As we embark on this journey to understand Jesus and the true nature of His sacrifice for us, let us open our hearts and minds to know the One who loves us. May this knowledge deepen our relationship with God and strengthen our faith as we continue to walk with Jesus.
