Who is God – Day 3

Romans 10:9

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in you heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

The Thought

If you listened to the song mentioned yesterday, you will have heard other names of God. One of them used in the refrain of that song is Adonai, which means “supreme being”. This tells us that God really is Lord over everything. Adonai is the Greek word used in this verse, and the supremacy of God is what Paul was telling his readers in the Roman church.

Logically, there can only be one supreme being. If there was any competition for this position, Paul would not put so much emphasis on Jesus being the only way to Father God.

The apostle John said a similar thing, in a different way: He wrote in the first chapter of his gospel: We have seen His glory. The glory of the One and Only Son, who came from The Father, full of grace and truth (John 1:14). A few verses later, determined to get his message across John tells us No-one has ever seen God, but the One and only Son who is Himself God and is in closest relationship with The Father, has made Him known (John 1:18).

One of the reasons Jesus came to earth was to make known to us God as Father and supreme Lord: Adonai.


Praise God today that He is Adonai and ask Him to take more of that position in your personal life. Many of us need to do that regularly, because life has a way of making us forget. Our own decisions, attitudes, and emotions can easily get in the way of us living as though Jesus is King.

Read John 1 today and feel the disciples deep emotions as he tries to get across to his readers just who Jesus was, and is.
