Power to Create

I like it when God told Moses, “I am who I am.” God didn’t need an introduction to the sons of Israel (Ex 3:14). He is the all-powerful creator who spoke the entire universe into existence with his powerful word; just “I am” was enough to describe everything that they need to know about God. His presence, power, and glory are seen throughout creation. It is obvious that he is pre-existent and is eternal. Jesus himself made this same claim (John 8:58) to show his equality with the Father and basically claiming to be God.
Christ showed his equality with God several times in the Bible. Many of the times that Jesus made these claims; the religious rulers understood what he was saying because they would pick up stones to try to kill him (John 8:59). People would bow down and worship Jesus and he would even receive worship from them (Matt 28:9). Even the angels worship Jesus in the book of Hebrews.
John chapter one shows Jesus’ eternality, showing how he was there at the beginning when everything was created. Colossians shows his omnipotent power in how he created everything and he is even the super glue that holds all the planets in their orbit. He also reflects the radiant glory of God and he is the exact representation of God himself. (Heb 1:3)
It is interesting to think about Jesus’ life, with the claims of deity that he made. You cannot just accept him as a good moral teacher, the claims that he made about himself were too outrageous. C. S. Lewis said it best when he said that Jesus would either have to be a liar, a lunatic, or God.
