What Are We to Make of Jesus Christ?

Updated on March 27, 2013

Christinaity is not about a religion, but a Relationship with the person of Jesus Christ

"What are we to make of Christ?"

There is no question what we can make of Him, it is entirely a question of what HE intends to make of us. You must accept or reject The Story. The things He says are different from any other teacher has said. Others say," This is the truth about the Universe. This is the way you ought to go,"but He says, "I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life." He says, "No can reach absolute reality, except through Me. Try to retain your own life and you will inevitably be ruined. Give yourself away and you will be saved." He says, "If you are ashamed of Me, if, when you hear this call, you turn the other way, I also will look the other way when I come again as God without a disguise.

If anything whatever is keeping you from God and from Me, whatever it is throw it away. If it is your eye, pull it out. If it is your hand cut it off. For it is better to enter into heaven without an eye or with only one hand than to be cast into hell, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, with both eyes and both hands. If you put yourself first you will be last. Come unto Me everyone who is carrying a heavy load / burden. I will set that right. Your sins, ALL OF THEM, are wiped out. I can do that. I AM Re-birth, I AM Life. Eat Me. drink Me, I AM your Food. And finally, do not be afraid, I have overcome the whole Universe which I spoke through My Word into being."

That is the issue of today, while today is yet today answer My call, for tomorrow with all of it's troubles and worries, will take care of it's own.

(For He saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) 2 Corinthians 6:2

He too, is far more than my Lord and Savior. Jesus did something for me, and inside of me, changing forever the wretch I was before Him into a New creation. Jesus did something for you as well but you have to be willing to "receive" that Gift of God's Grace. Jesus did  something that has never been done by anyone before: He gave Himself a willing sacrifice, pouring out His earthly life's blood for our sins. Jesus conquered hell, death and the grave for us. No longer do we need to fear what lies beyond death''s door.His perfect love and the Light of His glorious countenance has forever cast out the darkness of the enemy of God and man.

He also enables us to see the Father in a new way. In Colossians 1:15, Paul explains that Jesus is "the image of the invisible God." No one has ever looked upon the face of the Almighty. In the Old Testament, some people found themselves in His Presence, but they were not able to look fully upon His Glory. For an example I offer to you Moses. Even He whom God called "friend" ( Exodus 33:11 "So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle."), could not look directly at Him.

At best, when Moses had the opportunity? He could only look upon "God's back" as the Glory of our Lord passed by. But Moses never saw His face. ( Exodus 33:18-23 -Then Moses said, "Please, let me see Your glory." And the Lord God said, "I will cause all My goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim the name Yahweh before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion." But, He answered, "You cannot see My face, for no one can see Me and live." The LORD said, "Here is a place near Me. You are to stand on the rock, and when My glory passes by, I will put you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Then I will take My hand away, and you will see My back, but My face will not be seen." )

However, Jesus? Only begotten Son of the Living God, yes Jesus was and is real. There is plenty of historical proof of His life. That He in fact lived in the time period that is written of Him. And that He was crucified on a Roman cross. Not only in the Holy Bible is His existence substantiated, but in other writings of historical facts such as Josephus. There are others as well, but see, I do not know all of them. Speaking from a purely personal aspect? I don't need to. I KNOW He is real. I personally KNOW His Power to change the ugly duckling into the swan ( metaphorically speaking), from the inside out. Where it lasts. And in my own estimation that is all the "proof" I that I need. I know He is real because He lives in my heart and has changed me in such a Way that I never thought possible years ago. Then again, years ago, a personal relationship with God and Jesus Christ were the farthest things from my mind.

I can share with you that it is by faith that one finds the greatest Treasure of all. No one will ever "know" Him by God given human intellect alone. Faith is the substance of something hoped for, assurity of that One which came into the world to offer mankind Hope.

Or as it is written in His Holy Word in Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Jesus came to bridge the gap between the Father's pure, holy righteousness and mankind's sinful nature. As God's "image," Jesus is the exact, flawless replica--the perfect reflection-- of His Father. Therefore, Jesus could say, "He who has seen Me has seen the Father" ( John14:9 )

To know what our heavenly Father God is like, look at Jesus. He is the only full expression and explanation of God. Are you prepared to answer the question; "Who is this Jesus to you?" If you are then ask the Father to reveal His Son to you in a fresh way today.

Unlike us, the Father has complete awareness about our world and the details of every individual life--past, present, and future.He has all-encompassing knowledge. He is Omniscient. ( Acts 17:26 "From one man He has made every nation of men to live all over the earth and has determined their appointed times and the boundaries of where they live.)

The Lord understands every motive and acts accordingly.--( 1 Chronicles 28:9 "As for you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a whole heart and a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands the intention of every thought. If you seek Him, He will be found by you, but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever.)

Our own decision making is flawed because we cannot Clearly discern people's intentions. We make choices based on partial information, but God has the wisdom to properly interpret the facts and then take actions based on truth. ( Romans 11:33 "Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgments and untraceable His ways!)

He never makes a mistake. And offers to us His perfect and unending love. Through His Son, the Father offers us unconditional love. By sending Jesus to die in our place, God proved the depth of His everlasting love. ( 1John 4:10 "Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation-( payment)- for our sins. He always has our best interest at heart.

Our Lord is an all sufficient Lord. He offers us all the resources we need to carry out His plan---wisdom, strength, and skill. ( 2 Peter 1:3 "For His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.)

Adhering to God's timetable requires both faith and courage. we must believe that He knows how we should live, trust that His plan is right, and have the determination to wait until He gives a signal to proceed. Those who follow the Lord's schedule will experience the blessing of watching Him work things together for their gain and His Glory.

Romans 8:28 "We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.

    Hi there

    Very true, yes Jesus is our completion, he didn't leave anything out and he took no shortcuts in being us on the cross and resurrection, we are new creatures, forever. As the Father is pleased with Jesus so is he pleased with us.

    God bless
