Jesus Our Lord

When the Jewish leaders told Jesus he should not be healing people on the Sabbath, Jesus responded by telling them God is always working and thereby claimed to be equal to God.  Of course, Jesus backed up his claims by healing thousands of people and even raising some from the dead.  Jesus made it clear that he was not God the Father, but the Son of God; however, he also made it clear that He and the Father are connected in a miraculous way.  The Father and Son are one and when joined by the Holy Spirit, they form the Trinity of God.

The Messiah

Jesus explained to the Jewish leaders that Moses wrote about the coming of the Messiah.  In fact, much of the Old Testament foretells the story of Jesus with prophesies that include his birth, death, and resurrection.  Jesus went on to remind the Jewish leaders that John the Baptist came announcing the arrival of the Messiah and when Jesus was baptized by John, God the Father called out from heaven proclaiming Jesus to be the Son of God.  Jesus did not shy away from proclaiming his deity, but the Jewish leaders were afraid to give up their religious power and therefore ignored the obvious.

Our Savior

Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior.  When we place our faith in Jesus by rejecting our selfish desire and following the teachings of Jesus, we are granted the gift of eternal life in the kingdom of God.  Jesus is the Lord of lords and King of kings ruling over all of creation.  Only Jesus has the authority to supply us with forgiveness from our misdeeds and the path to becoming righteous children of God.  The New Testament makes this all abundantly clear and is a detailed testimony to the lordship of Jesus.

Trust Jesus

Jesus rules over us all.  It doesn’t matter if you believe in Him or not; he still remains Lord of all.  Those who deny His existence are lost and will only find true freedom when they seek a relationship with Him.  There is no greater love than the love of Jesus, who gave his life so that we might live.  Trusting the Lordship of Jesus is not burdensome in any way, but is a release from the heavy weight this world places on us all.  There is great comfort in knowing Jesus as the Lord of your life.
