Jesus

 

Who is Jesus?

We know that there are an endless number of questions to ask about God: “Is God real?” “Is what we know about Him really true?” and “What does He have to do with me?” to just name a few.

The Bible may not answer every question about God – and could even lead us to ask more – but one of the areas the Bible is quite definite is the answer to the question: who is Jesus?

 

Jesus commends the apostle Peter’s confession of Him as “the Messiah, the Son of the Living God” (Matthew 16:16), because Jesus knew that who He is – and could be to us – has the power to change our lives. Jesus is so unique because two worlds collide in him: heaven and earth, the divine and the human.

Yes, His name is the name above all names, and His life-breathing, storm-calming, miracle-working power is comparable to none. Yet, He is also the human Jesus, the personal friend who knows what we are going through and cares about us. That’s why the Bible also calls Him “Immanuel”, God with us.

This is how much God loved the world: He gave His son so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.

John 3:16 MSG

Jesus Cares!

Does Jesus care about you? Yes, He does!
How do we know?

Often we feel like we have disqualified ourselves from God’s love because of our history, our failures and our shortcomings. Although sin separates us from God and we are never able to make up for our sin in our own power or by or good works, there is still good news! The Bible says that nothing in all of creation can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. And to accept God’s love is to trust His patient, forgiving and gracious stance towards us. Only He has the power to free us from guilt, shame and condemnation, to give us a life of wholeness. All we have to do is turn to Him.

A New beginning

To be made whole, or to be saved, is to submit to God and His plan and purpose for our lives. It is a turning from our old ways and turning to Jesus, to ask Him for forgiveness from our sins and to give us new life in Him.

Romans 10:9 says: “If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Salvation is God’s free gift to us and we become His children.

It is an irrevocable acceptance into the family of God and it is an empowerment to live life wholly and fully with the purpose of reflecting God to the rest of His creation.

If you are not sure whether you are right with God or you know that you need Jesus in your life, you can choose to follow Him right now by praying a prayer of surrender to Jesus.

Dear Jesus,

Today I give you my life. I place my hope and trust in you. Thank you for dying in my place, so that I could have new life.

In Jesus name, amen.
