Spread the love

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” (Luke 2:11 NIV)

The one person you need to know is Jesus.  The real Jesus, as told by those who knew Him personally.  I’ve had the privilege of knowing Jesus all my life. I have never lived one moment of life without Him.  He has been with me in my darkest moments. He’s helped me celebrate my biggest highs. I can feel His presence in my life in a tangible way.  The one person you need to know is Jesus.

The one person you need to know is Jesus.

Why Jesus?  Because He is the most faithful friend you will ever have.  He expressed His friendship for us when He died on the cross, that was the beginning of our friendship with Him.  Long before we were born, He knew us (Jer. 1:5 NIV).  

He prays for us:
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,  that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” (John 17:20-21 NIV)

He is patient with us:
“But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life” (1 Timothy 1:16 NIV).

He is compassionate with us:
“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd” (Matthew 9:36 NIV).

He came to serve us:
“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45 NIV). 

He forgives us:
“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”(Luke 23:34 NIV)

He loves us:
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love” (1 John 4: 7-8 NIV).

The one person we all need to know is Jesus.  No earthly relationship can ever compare to our relationship with Him.  The deeper our relationship with Jesus becomes, the deeper our relationship with others will become.  If we truly want our best life here on earth, we will find it with Jesus. The one person you need to know is Jesus.

Question of the Day:
