Your view of Jesus has a lot to do with how close you are to him. Is your knowledge of the Son of God first hand, or secondary? Do you look at him from above, therefore looking down on him? Or is your perspective from his side, as if equal? Perhaps one should look at Jesus from the foot of the cross. Feeling crimson forgiveness of sin drip on you. Hearing deep gasps of air as he spoke his last words. Smelling the stench of death waiting in the wings to take him. Watching the Savior of the world, arms opened, exhibiting love, even in death.
He pressed them, “And how about you? Who do you say I am?” (Mat 16:15 MSG)
This is the truth about who Jesus is; He is the Son of God, the only one born of a virgin, who fulfilled 400 prophesies concerning the Messiah, who healed the sick, the lame, the hurting, who spoke truth, and was without sin, therefore being the perfect sacrifice for the forgiveness of sin, who died and was resurrected three days later whether this is your view or not.
We will all stand before Jesus one of these days, and he will ask us the same question, “And how about you? Who do you say I am?”
