Jesus is a topic that many people try to write about, and many people fail. To me words cannot describe who Jesus is, but I feel the need to try. Understand as you read this, that he is so much more than anything you can comprehend or understand.
A few months back I wrote a blog post about Jesus being the way. That is only one aspect of him. The book of John states in the Bible. Many books could be written about the things he has done.
Who Is Jesus To Me?
He is the Christ, and my savior. If you’ve read my book ‘Hurricane Jerald’ you’ll have a better picture about that. If not I’ll give a brief synopsis here.
I was lost, lonely, and angry, and wanted to fight anything in my path. I was full of anger and pain, with no outlet. Before Christ came into my life, I was an out of control fire that consumed everything in it’s path.
Who Is Jesus And Why Is He Important?
Over 2,000 years ago, a child was born outside of Bethlehem. He was born in a barn, and placed in a manger. There was no room for him in the inn.
This is the classic Christmas story that we hear every year, and people accept it, but don’t understand why. the Bible states in multiple places and through many people that Jesus was coming to save his people from their sins. He was coming to deliver us from our ways, so we could reconnect with God.
However at the time of his coming. The Jews were under Roman rule, they were looking for a physical savior, not a spiritual one. So he flew in under their radar.
If He’s The King Of Kings, Why Come As A Bay In A Manger?
I believe he came as a baby with humble beginnings, so people would see the truth without the glamour. In his later life he had multitudes following him wherever he went. This was due to him revealing the way to heaven, and showing many signs and wonders.
If he’d been born a prince, or someone of some high station, would people follow him because of that, and not to learn about God?
Everything he did was calculated and chosen for the greatest impact. He came as the lowliest person, and some verses even insinuate he wasn’t good to look at. I’m not saying he had a deformity, or was ugly. I’m just saying he wasn’t a guy to walk around turning a lot of heads.
In essence, he came down as a normal person, to experience our lives.
What Are The Names Of Jesus?
Jesus is called many different names in the Bible. To his enemies he was a hypocrite and a devil. To his followers he was the Christ, the son of the living God.
Jesus called himself the son of man and the son of God. Here’s a few other names that Jesus is called in the Bible;
- Jesus – Savior
- Emmanuel – God With Us
- Christ – The Anointed One Of God
- Lord – The One In Authority Or In Charge
- Master – Similar To Lord
- Logos (the Word) – Also Can Mean Logic
- Son of God – Claiming The Same Nature As God
- Son of Man – The Leader Of Mankind, Also Referencing A Prophecy In Daniel.
- The Light – Usually Used In The Context Of The Way.
- Truth – Similar To Light. Jesus Is The Way, Truth And The Light.
Many of these names are used in conjunction with one another.
How Is Jesus The Son Of God?
In the Bible Jesus himself claims to be the Son of God. Also there’s a few times where God himself speaks from the heavens declaring Jesus to be his son.
However his greatest sign is from his death and resurrection. When Jesus died, he took all of our sin with him into the grave. Then 3 days later he rose again, and when he did, he left the sin dead.
This was how Jesus conquered sin and the grave, giving us the option to reconnect with God. He did this so we could all have a choice, and that choice was to be with him and God.
His actions, proved he was the Son of God.
What Do Your Actions Say About You?
Everyday your actions speak about you, when you praise or gossip about a co-worker. It speaks volumes even without doing anything.
Your here because you wanted to know who Jesus is. Do you know who you are? Is there something missing inside your heart?
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. He is the Son of God, and he is God. he came down from heaven and became a man. Jesus did this so we could all be saved, and reconnect with him and God.
He loves you, and wants you to be the person you were made to be. Coincidentally, that’s the person you’d be most happy being too.
If you’re wanting a change. Pray this prayer below, and ask Jesus to come into your life, and transform it;
Dear Jesus, I know I’m a sinner, and I’ve done many things against you. Please forgive me Jesus. I believe you died and rose again for me, and I also believe you’re coming back soon. Help me to follow you. – Amen
If you prayed that prayer, tell someone, but don’t forget that you have to repent and change your ways as well. If you prayed, stop doing things that you know to be wrong, it’s called repentance.
Also find a church that preaches the Bible and start attending. You’ll learn a lot more about Who Jesus is.
Lastly, God loves you, and he sent Jesus to die for you. I wish you all the best.
