How Does Jesus Fit Into A Land Of gods?

In a few days I leave for the land of many gods.  From the moment the cabin door opens and I step foot off the plane in Phnom Penh, Cambodia until the day I fasten my seat belt for departure, false gods and dead ancestors will confront me at every turn.  False gods are present in America too, just more subtle.  In Cambodia they are in your face.  How does Jesus fit into this pantheon?

The Bible proclaims there is One True God, manifested in Jesus Himself. Jesus is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of God’s nature.  But did Jesus truly see Himself as the God?  Sean McDowell, in the video below, shows us He did.

I will be thinking about the True God a lot in coming days.  Lord willing, I will share Him with many.  As I step off the plane, may others step out of darkness and into the light.
