So Just Who is Jesus Christ?

 

Whenever we feel the least bit uncertain that He is able to be all we need Him to be regardless of the circumstances we find ourselves in, we may just want to review just a sample of who He is!

John 14:6 NIV Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know Him and have seen Him.”

Luke 2:11 NIV 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord.

Luke 2:11 NIV 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord.

Isaiah 9:6,7 NIV For to us a child is born,to us a son is given,and the government will be on His shoulders.And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.Of the greatness of His government and peace there will be no end He will reign on David’s throne and over His kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.

Matthew 1:18-25 NIV 18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus,because He will save His people from their sins.”22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel” (which means “God with us”).24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave Him the name Jesus.

Hallelujah!!

 

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Praying that each of us will grow closer to the “reason for the season” in the coming year!

You’ve got a friend

Imagine having a friend that demonstrated love to you even when you were most unlovable. Someone that was ALWAYS available no matter what time it was, morning, noon or night, weekday or weekend.  Someone that knew you deserved to be punished for some of your actions yet took the punishment for you. Someone that was willing to be beaten, scourged and even killed so that you could have freedom! Imagine that this friend never refused to take your calls or ever responded with, “I’m too busy right now can you try me again later.” Someone that you could put your trust in 100 percent and they would never hurt you or abandon you. Someone that when you did put that trust in, would perform miracles when necessary on your behalf. That would not only help you whenever you needed it but when you would mention others needs to them they would resolve them too just for you and your trusting them to come through! A friend  that would hold you accountable to a higher standard of living and give you the power to accomplish that. A friend that would intervene gently when you were about to make a big mistake in life that could cost you greatly or intervene firmly when you needed a kick in the pants to get you back on the right track. Someone that would promise and follow through walking alongside you during every high and low period of your life and would even give you joy while you went through the low periods.

It’s hard to imagine why anyone would refuse to have a friend like this ..but sadly millions do.  They reject the one who offers all of the above and more. I will never regret accepting Christ and welcoming Him into my life. He has NEVER disappointed me. He has NEVER allowed me to go through anything I couldn’t bear going through with Him alongside me. He gives me joy that allows me to have full confidence in my future no matter what the circumstances. He’s replaced my anxiety with peace! That alone has been monumental in my life. He gives me guidance and direction whenever I ask Him. He provides wisdom when I need it. He has answered so many of my prayers over the years that it is impossible for me to even mention them all. He has brought amazing people into my life and has given me a love for others that in the natural would be impossible. I have no doubt He will continue  to provides direction for the coming days when prophetically things will become increasingly difficult.

So who is this friend that is like no other…

John 10:10,11 NIV 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

John 10:27-30 NIV 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me,is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

Isaiah 9:6 NIV For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,  Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Phillipians 2:5-7 NIV In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

Hebrews 4:15,16 NIV 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are —yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approachGod’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

If you don’t have Christ as your friend the solution is easy and can be found in the next few verses… Romans 5:8 NIV But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 10:9 NIV If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Amazingly simple and amazingly profound..He will be a friend like no other!
