But Who Do YOU Say That I Am?

Probably the most important question ever asked.  It was without a doubt asked by the most important person that ever walked earth…JESUS.

This past Sunday at Faith Renewed in The Real Jesus Series, I talked about Jesus being God.

I asked 3 questions.

  • Who Do Men Say Jesus Is?

We took a look at some of the different views that some cults and religions have of Jesus.   You will have to check out the podcast to hear those…Some will BLOW YOUR MIND.

  • Who Does Jesus Say He Is?

One thing is for sure, Jesus knows who He is.  He made it very clear and the religious folks HATED IT (I don’t know why I just said that in my In Living Color voice).  His claims to be one with God wrecked their comfy little box they tried to put Him in.

  • Who Do YOU Say Jesus Is?

This is a question ONLY you can answer.  It becomes personal.  It really doesn’t matter what others say, or even what Jesus says, unless you put your faith in His words.

I want close with a thought provoking quote from one of my favorite authors, C.S. Lewis. This is an excerpt from his book, Mere Christianity.

I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.
