The Son of GodDaily Reflection / Produced by The High Calling
I will tell of the decree of the LORD:He said to me, “You are my son;today I have begotten you.
I want us to read the Nicene Creed:
The Nicene Creed
(A. D. 325; revised at Constantinople in A. D. 381)
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty;
Maker of heaven and earth,
And of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only-begotten Son of God,
Begotten of the Father before all worlds;
God of God, Light of Light,
Very God of very God,
Begotten, not made,
Being of one substance with the Father;
By whom all things were made;
Who, for us men and for our salvation,
Came down from heaven,
And was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary,
And was made man;
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
He suffered and was buried;
And the third day he rose again,
According to the Scriptures;
And ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of the Father;
And he shall come again, with glory,
To judge the quick and the dead;
Whose kingdom shall have no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life;
Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son;
Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified;
Who spake by the prophets.
And in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;
And I look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, like the Psalmist, You are the son of God in that You are the rightful King of Israel, the One through whom God executes His justice on earth. Thus You are worthy of honor and submission.
Yet You are Son of God in a way that far exceeds anything in Psalm 2. You are far more than the human King. You are the unique Son of God, indeed, the very Word of God made flesh. You share the same essential nature as God the Father even as You share in our nature as well.
How we praise You, Lord Jesus, Son of God!
