10 Awe-Inspiring Attributes of Jesus

Jesus is not only the most important person who ever lived, but He’s also the most controversial. Throughout history, people have hated Him, ignored Him, loved Him, and died for His sake. Two thousand years ago Jesus walked out of a carpenter’s shop to begin His ministry, and since then, an increasing number of people have followed Him.

There is none like Jesus.

He never wrote a book, but He is the subject of the greatest Book ever written.

He never wrote a song, yet He is the subject of many.

He never owned a home, but He has prepared one for us.

He never traveled more than one hundred miles from home, yet the entire world is in His presence.

He didn’t have a medical license but is known as the Great Physician.

He never marshaled an army, but He could bring down every kind of kingdom imaginable.

Herod could not kill Him.

Satan could not seduce Him.

Death couldn’t destroy Him.

The tomb could not keep Him.

Let’s take a closer look at some of Jesus’ attributes so we can get to know Him better. Consider how He is:

  1. The Creator. All things were created by Him, through Him, and for Him (Col. 1:15-16).

  2. Omnipresent. As our Savior, Jesus lives within our hearts and is with us wherever we go.

  3. Omnipotent. God the Son has all power to do whatever fits with His character and is in keeping with His Father’s will.

  4. Omniscient. There are no secrets because our Lord knows all things with complete accuracy. Before we even utter a prayer, He knows what we will say.

  5. Merciful. We may freely call upon Christ to be merciful to us and need never worry that He will mistreat us.

  6. Eternal. Jesus was born of a woman, but this is not when He came into existence. He has always existed as eternal Son of God, one of the three members of the Trinity.

  7. Sinless. Because of His divine nature, Jesus was completely sinless.

  8. Human. Although He never ceased being God, Jesus was also fully human yet without sin. Because He lived as a man, He understands and can help us in our weakness.

  9. Deity. Jesus was also wholly divine with all the attributes and perfections of deity.

  10. Virgin-born. To become the holy, sinless God-man, Jesus had to be conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of a virgin. This was the only way He could represent mankind and be the sinless Lamb of God who was qualified to pay for our sins with His death on the cross.

Do you believe Jesus is worthy of your faith, devotion, and worship? Be sure to focus on Him this Christmas as you enjoy the activities, preparations, and expectations of the season, for He is certainly worthy of all our devout praise and adoration.
