The True God

1 Corinthians 8:6  

Yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.

In pointing out that idols and the so-called gods of the pagan world are nothing (1 Corinthians 8:4-5), the apostle Paul emphasized the true God we worship. Paul describes the God family as consisting of both God, the Father, and Jesus Christ, the Son (Romans 1:4).

God reveals Himself to us through this family relationship, which highlights His love as well as His power.

See more about how the Father and the Son are both God in “The Word Is God,” our commentary on John 1:1. For an indepth study, download our free booklet Getting to Know the God of the Bible.
