Who is Jesus?
THE QUESTIONS WE LIKE TO ASK ABOUT GOD ARE ENDLESS:
“IS GOD REAL?” “IS WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT HIM REALLY TRUE?” AND “WHAT DOES HE HAVE TO DO WITH MY LIFE?”
JUST TO LIST A FEW.
The Bible may not answer every question about God and will often lead us to ask more, but one of the areas in which the bible is quite definite, is the answer to the question: who is Jesus?
CS Lewis, a well-known christian author wrote of Jesus, “...Either this man was, and is, the son of god, or else a madman or something worse. you can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him lord and god, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. he has not left that open to us. he did not intend to.”
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 star-breathing, storm-calming, miracle-working power is second 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.

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 that “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”
And guess what? Salvation is God’s free gift to us!
It is in irrevocable acceptance into the family of god and it is an empowerment to live life wholly and fully with the purpose fo reflecting God to those around us.
If you are not sure whether you are right with God or you know in fact that you need Jesus in your life, you can follow Him right now by praying a prayer of surrender to Jesus.
“Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying on the cross, thank you for paying for what I did. I receive your forgiveness, forgive me of my sins and be the Lord of my life. Be number one. With all of my heart, the best way I know how, I am going to live for you. I now know who I am! I am saved. I am redeemed. I am a child of God.
In Jesus Name, Amen.”
Congratulations!!! To pray these words with a surrendered heart to Jesus is the beginning of the most important journey you will ever embark on: the journey to follow Jesus.
