Who do you say I am?

Jesus.

Who is he?

The baby born of a virgin in a barn with filthy animals who kings traveled endless miles to praise and who angels worshiped.

The man, who after 2,000 years is still made present in this world.

The man who healed the blind with mud made from his spit.

The man who causes demons to tremble at the whisper of his name.

The one who is greater than the temple.

The man who walked on water.

The only person to live a blameless life.

The one who, after performing the impossible in the name of God, as God, the world still hated so much that he was crucified and willingly took upon all the shame and dirtiness of the world because he so yearned his people to know him.

Who is Jesus?

Jesus is love poured out.

He is the reason I live. He is the rhythm to my heart beat. Without him, I will suffocate under the weight of this world. Without him, I will always be searching for something more, but I will never be fully satisfied. This is the same for every soul. Without Jesus this life is death, but with Jesus, death turns to life.

So to the believer—- keep believing. Hold on to Jesus. And to the unbeliever—- believe. Jesus is so immensely greater than anything this world, any “god”, any person can offer. He is beyond all imagination and comprehension. And He loves you and us jealous for you to be completely and ultimately satisfied in His great love.

Who is Jesus?

Jesus is life.

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?”
They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
“But what about you? Who do you say that I am?”
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
-Matthew 16:13-16
