JESUS

 In Lent 2018

Jesus

God Saves

Philippians 2:9­-11

For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

 

Jesus is God. When Jesus calls himself the “Son of God” he is telling us He is the exact representation of God. Jesus left His heavenly home, took on humanity, to walk among us and lead us to Him and to our rightful home with Him. From the very beginning God’s plan included walking among His people. Jesus was there in the beginning, and He will be there at the end when He rides in on a white Horse with “King of kings” and “Lord of lords” (two of the names of God used in the Old Testament) written on his thigh.

Jesus is the fulfillment of all the names of God. Jesus is the fulfillment of all the laws of God. Jesus is the fulfillment of all the attributes of God. The plan since before the formation of the earth was always Jesus. Through Jesus every promise God has ever made comes to pass. Through Jesus everything we were created to become flourishes. You cannot have God without Jesus because He is God and eventually everyone will know it. And everyone will confess it.

 

REFLECTION

Do you fully believe that Jesus is the exact image of God and that any attribute we see in God Jesus is the representation of that?

Repent of having limits on Jesus’ authority over heaven and earth.

Pray and ask Jesus to reveal to you where He is able and willing to do more for you than you have the faith to ask for.

Listen and think about Jesus and all that He has done for you and ask Him why.

Meditate and imagine standing in front of Jesus. Ask Him what He would like you to give to him. Imagine yourself giving it to Him. Then ask Jesus what He would like to give back to you. Imagine yourself receiving it from Him.
