What is it like to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?
I’m not talking about merely knowing a lot facts about Jesus.
The point of this article is WHO Jesus is to Me, not merely what.
The HOW of Jesus is the Gospel story, but the WHO is the untold reward.
Greater than the gift is the love that gave the gift, but the Giver is greater still.
You can know Jesus, and He abides IN the hearts of all who put their trust in Him.
I will fail to tell all that Jesus is.
But I will make an attempt to share ,as best I can, just who Jesus is to me.
Jesus Christ is my best thought, my most cherished possession, He is God and man, Savior and Creator, and to know Him more is my greatest ambition.
Oh the height, depth, and breadth of all that Jesus is!
He is the only way , the only truth, the meaning and purpose of life, and the only hope for eternity.
He is the author of the language of the information of life we call DNA, and the undesigned-Designer, eternal and ever-existing, who orchestrated the fine-tuned Big Bang so that our universe could sustain life.
He is the wonder in nature and science, each reflecting His infinite beauty, order, and intelligibility.
His courage to face a grievous death and torture was driven by a boundless love for everyone.
He endured rejection so we could be accepted.
He has borne our shame and by His stripes we are healed.
He died so we could live.
He defeated death for us and rose from the grave victorious.
He hears our most distant thoughts and our most earnest prayers.
He longs for us to know and love Him with all our heart, mind, and strength and all that is in us.
Christ’s love is stronger than sin and death, and mightier than any bonds known to ensnare the hearts and minds of mankind.
Only Christ’s Spirit and love can evoke love so strong in the hearts of sinners that it burns away all other passions.
Jesus is hope when all else is hopeless. He is love when all around us is hate. He is the reason to live when faith in all else is gone.
Nothing can drive Him away from any who truly trust Him.
He will never leave us or forsake us.
No desire, temptation, or affection can compare to knowing Christ; and anyone who truly knows Him would never choose to leave His presence – for nothing else compares to knowing Jesus Christ who is God and who is Love.
Though I walk through the Valley Of The Shadow Of Death I will fear no evil, for He is with me.
He so loved us that He came down from His glorious throne and became one of us.
He left majesty to live in humility.
He humbly worked as one of us with the same hands that formed the universe,
all to save us, even before we knew Him.
He is all powerful, yet for the joy before Him, He endured death on a cross for those who loved Him and those who hated Him.
After three days He opened the tomb they laid Him in and rose from death.
Even now He opens His arms to beckon to all who labor and are heavy laden to give us life and rest.
My heart is bound and accountable to Christ’s heart who gave His blood to cleanse my soul of sin.
Duty as motivation is not worthy of comparison to the intimate resolve to love Christ.
Christ’s love, when realized, goes beyond motivation, discipline, and dedication.
Christ’s love is limitless and the one who knows such love is confident in trials and courageous in tribulation.
The human mind may seek in vain to grasp the full scope of God’s love, but we should continually endeavor to do so.
Jesus Christ is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, and everything in between.
His promises are sure and are anchored in His great love, which He publicly demonstrated on the cross for you and me.
And, believe me, when I say this; words can’t even begin to express to others this inexpressible love Christ is in the hearts of those who know Him.
Jesus is the Most Sacred Flame, the Light of the World, inextinguishable and inexhaustible, burning in the hearts of all who trust Him as Savior.
The totality of who Jesus is to all who know Him cannot be fully expressed because He transcends measure, time, and space.
He alone is worthy of our eternal praise.
