15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 16:15-18, ESV)
Jesus, the Son of God. What does it mean that God has an offspring? It means in his infinite wisdom, God combined with man to become the God-man. He became the perfect sacrifice, necessary for satisfying God’s need for justice against the sins of man.
Prayer: Lord, thank you.
