For He is unique in his incarnation (the one and only God-man),
unique in his atonement (only He has died for the sins of the world),
and unique in his resurrection (only He has conquered death).
And since in no other person but Jesus of Nazareth did God
first become human (in His birth),
then bear our sins (in His death),
and then triumph over death (in His resurrection),
to save sinners.
Nobody else possesses His qualifications.
~John Stott, The Radical Disciple
“remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me…” Isaiah 46:9
“I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God.” Isaiah 45:5
“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe Me
and understand that I Am He.
Before Me no god was formed,
nor will there be one after Me.
11 I, even I, Am the Lord,
and apart from Me there is no Savior.
12 I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—
I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I Am God.
13 Yes, and from ancient days I Am He.
No one can deliver out of My hand.
When I act, who can reverse it?” Isaiah 43:10-13
“I and the Father are one.” John 10:30
“It is finished.” John 19:30
“My Father, who has given them to me,
is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch
them out of the Father’s hand.” John 10:29
Praising God for His special, unique Son who acted on my behalf with the ultimate finished work! Amazing grace and love poured out even when I was His enemy! For “ Once you were [I was] not a people, but now you are [I am] God’s people; once you [I] had not received mercy, but now you [I] have received mercy (1 Peter 2:10).”
