What Jesus teaches about The Nature of God


Welcome, dear reader, to today’s devotional! Have you ever wondered about the nature of God and how Jesus helps us understand it? Jesus, in His teachings and actions, paints a vivid picture of God’s loving, compassionate, and forgiving nature. Understanding the nature of God as Jesus describes it can fill our lives with hope, peace, and a deeper sense of purpose. Let’s embark on this short journey together to explore what Jesus reveals about the nature of God.

Bible Verse

John 14:9 (NIV): “Jesus answered: ‘Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?’”


In this powerful verse, Jesus emphasizes His oneness with God. To see Jesus is to see the Father. This statement unveils a profound truth about the nature of God: He is not distant or detached from us. Instead, He is intimately involved in our lives, reflected through Jesus Christ. Jesus, through His acts of love, healing, teaching, and sacrifice, provides us with a clear and tangible picture of who God truly is.

God’s nature is compassionate and merciful. Jesus’ interactions with sinners and outcasts show us God’s heart for the marginalized and His desire to bring everyone into His loving embrace. Through Jesus, we see a God who heals, forgives, and restores, always inviting us into a personal and transformative relationship with Him.

Moreover, Jesus’ unwavering obedience to God’s will, even to the point of sacrificing His life, demonstrates God’s profound love for humanity. God’s nature is one of self-giving love, always working for the good of His creation.

Actions to Take

  1. Reflect on Jesus’ Actions: Spend time in prayer and meditation reflecting on the life of Jesus. Identify specific actions that reveal God’s nature and find ways to embody those traits in your daily life.

  2. Show Compassion: Follow Jesus’ example by reaching out to those in need. Volunteer, offer a helping hand, or simply listen to someone who needs to talk.

  3. Forgive Freely: Practice forgiveness in your relationships. Remember that just as God forgives us, we are called to forgive others.

  4. Seek God’s Will: Regularly seek God’s guidance in your decisions, echoing Jesus’ obedience. Trust that His plans are filled with love and goodness for you.

  5. Deepen Relationships: Build relationships based on love, kindness, and respect, reflecting the loving nature of God in your interactions.
