Who Do You Say That I am ?

William Tyndale, the father of the modern English language, described Him this way:

“He is our Redeemer, Deliverer, Reconciler, Mediator, Intercessor, Advocate, Attorney, Solicitor, our Hope, Comfort, Shield, Protection, Defender, Strength, Health, Satisfaction, and Salvation.”

The Man about whom Tyndale spoke, is Jesus of Nazareth.

Jesus once asked one of His followers, a man named Peter, “Who do you say that I am?” Peter replied: “You are the Christ.”

Today, if you ask people, “Who is Jesus?” you will get many different answers.

In the end, regardless of what you’ve heard, regardless of what kind of “Jesus” you’ve formed or created in your mind, Jesus will either be your Savior and Advocate before the Father, or your Judge with the Father.

The Bible says, “For the Lord is our judge; the Lord is our lawgiver; the Lord is our king; he will save us” (Isa. 33:22).

And, “There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy” (James 4:12a).

When you die, you will stand before God to answer for your life.

God, the Righteous Judge, will judge you according to His perfect moral standard—the law He has written on your heart (do not lie, do not steal, do not lust, do not covet, do not hate, do not take His name in vain, etc.).

If you have broken God’s law (and everyone has), He will find you guilty, with your punishment being eternity in hell.

Your only hope is for Jesus Christ, The God-Man, to save you from yourself, your sins, and from the wrath of a Holy, Righteous, and a Just God.

God the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth—fully God and fully man, yet without sin.

He voluntarily shed his innocent blood and died on the cross, taking upon Himself the punishment you rightly deserve for your sins against God.

Three days later, He forever defeated sin and death when He rose from the grave.

There Are Two Categories Of Human Beings. Either You Are Saved Or Lost.

One Or The Other. Born Again, Or Dead In Trespasses And Sin.

In Which Category Are You?

Psalm 1: 1-6 Explains, The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly.

Psalm 1:1-6 NKJV
Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; [2] But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. [3] He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither;And whatever he does shall prosper. [4] The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. [5] Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. [6] For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Who do you say Jesus is?

Repent and believe the gospel, today.

While you still have a chance and an opportunity to do so.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone.
