John 5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
The title to this little devotional wouldn’t shock you if you are really a Bible believer. You know that Jesus is God. God is three persons in One. But for many they want to think of Jesus as only a great man or teacher. That is simply not enough of what the Bible says.
The Jews knew exactly what He was saying. He was saying that He, a man in the flesh, was claiming to be equal with God. He is. No shock there.
So if you have ever doubted if Jesus was truly God just know that He said He was!
