What Make A Hero? " Jesus the Ultimate Hero Allows Us To Live To Full Potential" XGT Experience Lesson for the week...
Who do you say Jesus is? A simple question at the surface, but when you really think about it how would you answer this question. How we define Jesus says a lot about us and it will define you.
So who do you say Jesus is? For most of us it is an answer that we have answered before, but for most of us we have many different answers. You see on any given day I could say that Jesus is my Lord and Savior, my King, my Best Friend, my Guide, my Comfort, and my Strength. You get the point. The only thing about my answer to this question is this it changes day by day and minute depending on my emotional state. Jesus and how I define Him too much of the time depends upon my emotional state. If I am happy and having a great day, Jesus is my Best Friend, if I am having a crappy day, well I my call Him my Savior, and well if I am getting into things that I know He would not approve of, well I just forget that I have any relationship with Him. Until conviction comes and then, He becomes my Lord.
As crazy as it sounds I allow my emotional state which is never all that balanced to be the defining factor of who Jesus is.
Jesus becomes the thing that I turn to depending on how my day, week, month, or year is going.
The Bible says this about Jesus. Colossians 1:15-16
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
When you look at that description of Jesus it really seems silly that I would allow my emotions to be the thing that defines Jesus.
If I took this section Colossians 1:13-23 and developed my answer of who is Jesus, I would have an answer that defines my emotions, and my life. Instead of my emotions and my life defining who I say Jesus is I would allow all that He is to define my emotions and life. I hope you can see the difference and why it is important. Take five minuets and read Colossians 1:13-23 and ask yourself who do you say Jesus is? When we define Jesus as the person that He is instead of what we need Him to be our lives will be a reflection of Him, instead of our emotional state. When we live with the proper view of Jesus we can live up to our full potential.
