What does scripture mean by saying that GOD AND JESUS ARE ONE

What does it mean to be in God and to be in Jesus and to be one and that They are in us.

It is all about the essence or nature of God and Jesus who and what they are namely love and righteousness/holiness and the unity it forms .

For us in this world it begins by believing in Jesus and through Jesus, believing in God of the Bible and having this faith in them to follow the commands in the Bible to become part of this unity of love and holiness.

1) Believe the good news about Jesus as Lord and Savior and confess that you are a sinner and ask for forgiveness and repent , taking Jesus into your heart and life and making Him Lord of your life .

2) Believe Jesus that His God and Father and your God and Father and Creator is real and that God almighty as described in the Bible is the Only God , greater than all and even greater than Jesus(Joh_14:28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.)

3) From this moment you begin to live by faith in God of the Bible and in Jesus as described in the Bible and obey the commands of God and Jesus.

Joh_3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Joh_6:29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

1Pe_1:21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

Eph_3:17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,

Joh_17:26 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

Joh_3:18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

Joh_3:36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.

Your decision to believe that Jesus came from heaven , that He was killed by the unbeliever and was raised from the dead by God and that He is sitting at the right hand of God on His throne , was all you had to do to get saved . But that was only the beginning of your new life in Jesus. Now you must live your life by faith and obeying the commands of God and Jesus as you will find in the Bible.You must leave the old way you used to live of sin behind and living a righteous and holy life . You have a big responsibility.

Gal_2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Eph_1:4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love Rom_8:29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. Col_1:15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

THE IMAGE OF GOD IS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS

Rom_8:29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.

Col_1:15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

Eph 4:24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

Luk_1:6 Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord’s commands and decrees blamelessly.

JESUS IS LIKE GOD, RIGHTEOUS AND HOLY….

We also must live a righteous and holy life for Jesus to live in us and for the Holy Spirit to live in us and to become ONE through faith in righteousness and holiness and spirit

Heb 1:3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

Php_2:15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky

Col_1:10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,

GOD IS “LOVE”

Again, Jesus is the radiance of God’s glory and as God Is LOVE so is Jesus

Heb 1:3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

1Co_8:3 But whoever loves God is known by God.

1Jn_4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

1Jn_4:9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

1Jn_4:12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

1Jn_4:16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

LOVE GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART

Mat_22:37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’

1Jn_5:3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,

LIVE IN LOVE

Luk_10:27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'”

BECOME UNITED IN LOVE,

God and Jesus in you as you become ONE in love through faith

Col_2:2 My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ,

1Jn_5:2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.

Gal_5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

Joh 10:15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father–and I lay down my life for the sheep.

Joh_17:23 I in them and you in me–so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

Joh_10:30 I and the Father are one.”

Joh_17:11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one.

Joh_17:22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—

Joh 17:21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

Joh 17:22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one–

Joh 17:23 I in them and you in me–so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR AS YOURSELF

Joh_15:12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

Joh_15:17 This is my command: Love each other.

Gal_5:14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

1Ti_1:5 The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.

1Jn_3:23 And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us.

2Jn_1:6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

Mat_22:37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’

Mat_22:39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

Rom_13:10 Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

GOD AND JESUS ARE ONE IN ESSENCE BUT STILL TWO ALMIGHTY SPIRITS

1) God is greater than all.Joh_10:29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.

2) God is greater than Jesus Joh_14:28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.

God The Father appointed Jesus as God

Joh_1:18 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.

Php_2:6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;

Act_10:42 He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead.

Eph_1:22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,

1Co_15:28 When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.

THERE IS ONE GOD THE FATHER AND ONE JESUS

1Co_8:6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

CHILDREN OF GOD

Gal_3:26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith,

Joh 10:27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

Joh 10:28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.

Joh 10:29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.

Joh 10:30 I and the Father are one.” (a unity in love) 1Jn_4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1Jn_4:12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 1Jn_5:2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. 1Jn_3:10 This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister. 1Jn_2:29 If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him.

1Jn_3:7 Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.

1Jn_5:3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,

Joh 10:37 Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father.

Joh 10:38 But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.” Col_3:14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Joh_17:11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one.

Joh_17:22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—

Joh 17:21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

Joh 17:22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one–

Joh 17:23 I in them and you in me–so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

Joh 17:24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.

Joh 17:25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me.

Joh_15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Joh 15:1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.

Joh 15:2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.

Joh 15:3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.

Joh 15:4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

Joh 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Joh 15:7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

Joh 15:8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

Joh 15:9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.

Joh 15:10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.

Joh 15:11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.

Joh 15:12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

Joh_10:38 But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.”

Joh_14:10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.

1Jn 5:20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.

Joh_15:10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.

1Co_6:17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.

Php_2:1 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,

Col_2:2 My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ,

Joh_15:6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.

Joh_15:7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

Joh_15:10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.

1Jn_2:24 As for you, see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.

Joh 12:44 Then Jesus cried out, “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me.

Joh 12:45 The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me.

1Jn 4:14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.

1Jn 4:15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God.

1Jn 4:16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

1Jn 4:17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.

Eph_4:13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Col_3:14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Col_2:2 My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ,

Heb 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
