Who is Christ?

Colossians 2:8-9  Beware that no one carries you off as spoil through his philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ; For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily,

Colossians 1:19  For in Him all the fullness was pleased to dwell

Anyone ever wonder who Christ is?  Surely the world is full of inquiring minds. I still ask myself this question, Who is he?  If you’ve ever been to a big city you realize that it takes time to do some sightseeing.  You can’t see everything in one day.  It is the same with the Lord.  We need to go on a sightseeing tour to discover all the aspects of our wonderful Christ!  First he is the embodiment of the Triune God.   That simply means that in his being he embodies God the Father, Son, and Spirit.  God dwells in him bodily.  This refers to his incarnation.  God now dwells within a human being, Christ.  So when you see Christ you see the Triune God.  When you receive Christ you receive the whole Triune God!  Wow.

How is God revealed?

Matthew 11:27   All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one fully knows the Son except the Father; neither does anyone fully know the Father except the Son and him to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

Matthew 16:16-17   And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.  And Jesus answered and said to him, Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in the heavens.

 

Most people would agree that God is mysterious.  Yet he doesn’t want to remain a mystery to us.  He wants to be made known.  But how would you suppose that God is made known?  Well, the answer is quite simple.  He reveals himself.  The answer is simple yet profound.  Why?  Because our God is Triune!  That means he is three and one at the same time (search earlier posts or tune in for more details).   He is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  You cannot know the Son of God unless the Father reveals him to you.  neither can you know the Father unless the Son reveals him to you.  Awesome huh?  Awesome indeed!  Tune in for more to come….

The Word of the Lord

1 Peter 1:25  But the word of the Lord abides forever.” And this is the word which has been announced to you as the gospel.

Isaiah 40:7-8 The grass withers, the flower fades, Because the breath of Jehovah blows upon it. Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flower fades, But the word of our God will stand forever.

Life changes for the better oftentimes for the worse.  Sometimes we are on the mountaintop, at other times we happen to be in the valley.  But we can always be certain about one thing.  And that’s not the weather.  It’s the word of the Lord.  Heaven and Earth may pass away but the word of the Lord abides forever! This is the word that has been announced to us as the gospel.  Feeling lost?  Come back to the word.  Feel like your faith is waning?  Come back to the word.  Have you completely lost hope?  Definitely come back to the word.  Praise God for his word!  The word of the Lord abides forever!

Looking Away unto Jesus

Hebrews 12:1 Therefore let us also, having so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, put away every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us and run with endurance the race which is set before us,

12:2 Looking away unto Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down on the right hand of the throne of God.

 

Thank the Lord for a new day to look away unto Jesus.  The author and perfecter of our faith.  I always am helped by this verse.  Many unbelievers as well as Christians look to themselves to be everything.  And when they fail or come up short then they are very discouraged wanting to throw in the towel on the Christian life.  Well, I have the gospel here for you this morning!  LOOK AWAY UNTO JESUS!  He is much better looking.  He is the most attractive person in the universe.  Ask the Lord to draw you to him.

Become like little Children

Matthew 18:1 In that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Who then is greatest in the kingdom of the heavens?

2 And He called a little child to Him and stood him in their midst

3 And said, Truly I say to you, Unless you turn and become like little children, you shall by no means enter into the kingdom of the heavens.

4 He therefore who will humble himself like this little child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of the heavens.

 

Thank God for little children!  The Lord told us unless we turn and become like little children we shall by no means enter into the kingdom of the heavens.  Little children are humble, simple and not complicated.  They are not contemplating the meaning of the universe nor are they self conscious or anxious.  Their main concern is where is the food!  I’m hungry already!  They just eat, sleep and poop.  Life is simple.  We need to be simple  like little children.  We need to eat (enjoy) the Lord (John 6:57) and he will be our real rest (Psa. 23).

Do You have Sins?

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from every sin.

Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, the faithful Witness, the Firstborn of the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and has released us from our sins by His blood

Do you have sins?  You’re a great candidate for cleansing!  The blood of Jesus, the Son of God cleanses us from every sin.  Good news huh? This is the gospel.  Revelation 1:5 tells us that He loves us and has released us from our sins by His blood.  We’re released!  Thank you Lord!

Blessed are those who wash their Robes

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are those who wash their robes that they may have right to the tree of life and may enter by the gates into the city.

Revelation 7:14 And I said to him, My lord, you know. And he said to me, These are those who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

 

We keep our robes, our living clean, by the blood of the Lamb.  Confessing our sins to the Lord.  Praise the Lord for the Blood of the Lamb!  Stay tuned more to come tomorrow…
