Who Is Jesus? What words can we possibly use to describe him? Jesus is . . . creator, redeemer, sustainer, and provider. He is the heaven bringer, truth revealer, and hope giver. He is the bright light in the darkness. He is the friend of sinners, the healer of the broken, and the calm in the storm. He is the only way to heaven, the only truth that frees us, and the only life that transforms us. Jesus is the one hope of humanity. The one sacrifice for sin. The one way to the Father. He lived for you, on the cross died for you, and from the grave he rose for you. The amazing thing is that this glorious Jesus passionately loves you! He desires to know you and share his life with you. Jesus is deserving of our extravagant devotion, adoration, and worship!
Luke 23:34-38 (NLT) "Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.” And the soldiers gambled for his clothes by throwing dice. The crowd watched and the leaders scoffed. “He saved others,” they said, “let him save himself if he is really God’s Messiah, the Chosen One.” The soldiers mocked him, too, by offering him a drink of sour wine. They called out to him, “If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!”
