Who Is Jesus?

Who is Jesus? 

The plethora of things He can do is amazing! He touches each aspect of our lives as He intricately has the power to do good in them. This is amazing because in 2020, He’s relevant to where we live and how we live. He knows what we feel, what we face and what has happened to us; therefore, His mercies are new for us every morning.

Receiving this is imperative because Jesus wants to make every aspect of our lives better.

Jesus didn’t go through what He did to be confined to one area of our lives. He did what He did so He can fully have us both now and for eternity. Our opportunity is to let Jesus be Jesus in us so His healing, His grace, His redemption, His forgiveness, and His power makes us into a new person. We must resist limiting Him in our lives since He has the ability and desire to reach every part of who we are.

Notice what Israel did in Psalms 78:41 – 

“Yes, again and again they tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.”

We can’t afford to make this same mistake as their limitation of God, actually tempted Him. How sad for Israel. They had access to the God of the heavens and the earth and through their limited beliefs, they blocked Him from moving in their lives.

I encourage you to let Jesus out of the box. Let Him out of the box of disappointment, unbelief, lies, religion, doubt and more. Let Him free today because He can do anything, anytime, anywhere to anyone. He is the same yesterday, today and forever, so let your faith be stirred to reach up and receive who Jesus is.

So, who is Jesus and how does the bible describe Him? 

This is important because when we know these things, we can expect them to be real in us. Expectation comes by knowing who He is and what He can do. When we believe these things, our faith expands because our expectation is enlarged. So as you read who Jesus is from each book in the Bible, let Jesus out of any box, so He can be ALL He wants to be.

Please don’t settle in limitation. Don’t settle in doubt. Don’t settle in disappointment. Don’t settle in despair. Don’t settle in self-pity. Jesus is too much for this to be our reality!

So let God arise through your expectation of who Jesus is and watch His enemies be scattered (Psalms 68:1)

Who is Jesus? He is everything you need.
