Who is Jesus?

“He (Jesus) pressed them, “And how about you? Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter said, “You’re the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus came back, “God bless you, Simon, son of Jonah! You didn’t get that answer out of books or from teachers. My Father in heaven, God himself, let you in on this secret of who I really am. And now I’m going to tell you who you are, really are. You are Peter, a rock. This is the rock on which I will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out.”

Matthew 16:15-17 The Message

Who is Jesus, to you?

Is He still a tiny baby in a manger who you think about once or twice a year? Someone you pray to only when you want something, and when your life isn’t going as planned?

Is He a friend in time of need, someone who sticks closer than a brother? Someone who’s there for you when everyone else seems not to care?

Is He your Savior? Someone who knows the ugliness of your sin, and loves you enough to take on your sin so you could be reconciled with God?

Is He your Lord? Someone you’ve surrendered your life to? Someone you not only love, but strive to be like and serve?

Jesus has been all these to me at different stages in my life.

So who is Jesus?

If you don’t know, now might be a good time to figure it out.
