What are We to Make of Jesus Christ?

What are We to Make of Jesus Christ?

  What are we to make of Jesus Christ? This is a question which has, in a sense, a frantically comic side. For the real question is not what are we to make of Christ, but what is He to make of us? The picture of a fly sitting deciding what it is going to

When we lift our eyes from them toward Him, we do so with loving praise, just as we look toward our oldest and dearest friends and tell them how we care for them, though they already know it…. We speak to Him as we speak to our most intimate friends — so that we can commune together in love.

Why Jesus Prayed

  I look first to Jesus for clues to the mysteries of faith, and regarding prayer He did not seem to share some of my biggest struggles. He never wondered whether God exists, whether anyone is truly listening. He never questioned the importance of prayer; indeed, He would flee a crowd of needy people in

Jesus: God with Us

  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light

The Leadership Genius of Jesus

Titles and Deeds Let me tell you about the worst boss I ever saw. He was given authority prematurely, and he abused it wildly. He harshly ordered people when he should have gently directed. He bullied people when he should have asked nicely. He whispered when he should have screamed. He delegated poorly, and then

The Present-Tense Christ

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. – Hebrews 13:8 I am God’s Son. – John 10:36 I am the resurrection and the life. – John 11:25 I am the way, and the truth, and the life. – John 14:6 I am the true vine. – John 15:1 The present-tense Christ. He never says, “I

If Jesus felt He needed time alone in prayer with His Father, why do you and I think we can get by without it? How is your prayer life? Could some of the exhaustion you are feeling be the result of simple prayerlessness?

Prayer in the Pursuit of God

Time Alone with Jesus   Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. — Luke 5:16 Often when I am under stress and pressure, I feel one of my greatest needs is to get a good night’s sleep. But I’ve found that physical rest alone is not enough to revive my flagging spirit. I need

Echoes from Eternity

“Kyrie eleison.” It was the one sentence uttered to Jesus more than any other. “Kyrie eleison.” Those who traveled with Jesus heard it over and over. “Kyrie eleison.” We would have been amazed at the number and variety of people that came to Jesus and said, “Kyrie eleison.” Some shouted it to Jesus from afar

The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi: Bethlehem

Where It All Began So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While

Jesus OBS — Wrapping It Up!

We have a high priest who is able to understand, and since He understands we find mercy and grace when we need it. When we fall, we are not forgotten. When we stumble, we are not abandoned. Our God gets us. ~ Max Lucado I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes
