want to encourage you to stop for just a moment and think about Jesus – who He was, why God sent Him, and who He is supposed to be in and through our lives?
The apostle Paul wrote – “In Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him” (Colossians 1:16).
Jesus is the center piece to ALL Christianity, and yet, I wonder how many ever have stopped, and really thought about what it means to surrender to Jesus, and why?
Jesus was with God in the beginning. In fact, He was and is God, and He is the One through whom all things were made. And this is precisely what Paul had written – Jesus, the image of the invisible God and the firstborn of all creation.
But why is this so important? Because until we truly KNOW in whom we believe, we will never be able to understand how to behave as a believer.
It’s no secret, our world is undergoing some significant changes (and I’m being kind in my referencing). And these changes are greatly affecting the church, but why is God’s church not greatly affecting the world?
I believe, it is the above reality – we do not know in whom we believe – and that lack of understanding is shaping things in a frantic way.
It is crystal clear from Scripture that Jesus is eternal, divine, and has creative power, and the world was made through Him and for Him. And He is the answer to the question that many human beings have been asking – “What is life all about?”
Well, the answer is Jesus.
It is not a cause. It is not a principle. It is not a theory. It is the Person of Jesus Christ. He is the present-day solution to our every problem.
And if we don’t get this, we will continue to remain complacent in our powerlessness and keep doing nothing significant.
The Bible assures us that Jesus is more than a man. He is the divine, and the game-changer in everything.
It’s time we believe in Who He is. And in that belief, begin walking in Him, living for Him, and witness of Him.
