Daar word op die oomblik in die kerk meer gepraat oor self-ontplooiing as oor self-opoffering.-Anon.......As ‘n kerk haar woorde begin devalueer, dan word die kerk ‘n ramp vir die volk. - K Schilder

Who Do You Say Jesus Is?

Mark 8:29
29He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered and said to Him, “You are the Christ.”

Do you know that how you see Jesus determines what you receive from Him? If you see Jesus as your healer, you will receive healing. If you see Jesus as your refuge and fortress, you will receive protection. (Joseph Prince)

Jesus is my Redeemer, hence I am not going to hell anymore.
Jesus is my Saviour, hence He constantly frees me from the grips of sin.
Jesus is my Healer, hence I constantly receive emotional healing from Him, and when sometimes when needed, also physical healing.
Jesus is my Provider, hence I the more I trust in His ways, His will, His wisdom, the less I have to worry about providing.
Jesus is my King, hence I am entitled to the benefits of His Kingdom. I receive support and protection from Him and His people.
Jesus is my Comforter, hence He comforts me, constantly.
Jesus is my Lord, hence I don't need to Worship anything else.
Jesus is Emmanuel, He showed me how to live a life of peace and freedom. Hence I try my best to follow His examples.
Jesus is the Bride, hence I'm preparing myself for the day He comes to fetch me.
Jesus is the one that Loves me more than anyone else. Hence my heart is drawn to Him, always. I yearn for His presence. The more I seek His love, the more I overflow of His love and the more of His love I can give to my loved ones and the ones around me.
Jesus is the Judge, hence the more I experience His presence, then less I want sin to be part of my life.
Jesus is a servant, who am I then to think I'm better than a servant?

C.S. Lewis observed, 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 up with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to (Mere Christianity pp. 40-41).

That is precisely the one thing that liberal Christians easily lose sight of - that Jesus was far from a simple preacher of universal love and tolerance. On the contrary, in his teaching he strongly emphasized the judgment and wrath of God…

His message was clear: he issued an invitation to get right with God and submit to His reign if they want to survive into God's new age.

And yes He is the Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, our intermediary in Heaven. He is our Saviour, the only name by which man can gain Eternal Life and peace with the Father.

These words from a song of Michael W Smith echo some very deep thoughts on my Jesus:

"My Jesus, My Saviour,
Lord there is no one like you,
All of my days, I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love.

My comfort, my shelter,
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You".
