Do You Know Jesus?

Do you understand who Jesus is? Sure, none of us can, really, truly grasp Him with our finite minds, but seriously: who do you say Jesus is? Many of us treat Jesus like a buddy. He's not. Many of us treat Jesus like a common friend. He is not. He is the Lord of all creation, the Word of God, who spoke all in to existence, and was with God from the beginning (John 1). In our quests for independence, we want to right Jesus' title, and ours along side it. He loves us, completely, more than anyone ever could, and yet He also is the Master, and we are His servants. Jesus deserves nothing less than our utter and complete loyalty and submission. He is the founder of the world, the author and perfecter of our faith. He is the one who dreamed the universe and all in it. He alone sits next to God the Father. We are but a vapor. A small puff of mist on the timeline of the world, but the Lord God, He is eternal, and invites us in to that eternity through His Son Jesus Christ, but Jesus must be on the throne, and we must bow down in worship, service, submission, and awe of Him. Anything less raises us, and attempts to diminish He who formed the stars. So I will ask again, who do you say Jesus is? Hebrews 11 Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. 3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.


For to which of the angels did God ever say,


“You are my Son, today I have begotten you”?


Or again,


“I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son”?


And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,


“Let all God's angels worship him.”


Of the angels he says,


“He makes his angels winds, and his ministers a flame of fire.”


But of the Son he says,


“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”


And,


“You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands; they will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment, like a robe you will roll them up, like a garment they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will have no end.”


And to which of the angels has he ever said,


“Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?


Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?
