Luke 9:18-20

Luke

Here is the age-old question: Who is Jesus?

The great theologian, C. S. Lewis, narrowed it down to three choices: liar, lunatic, or Lord.

Jesus is either a liar who came to completely deceive the masses as He spoke of love, forgiveness, reconciliation to the Father, and redemption of sinners’ lives.

Or, He is a lunatic, a madman who spoke of those things out of a clouded insanity all the while doing amazing miracles.

Or, He truly is Lord, worthy of our worship and praise. He is the Messiah who came to seek and to save. Therefore, He is who He said He was and who the Old Testament prophets foretold that He is.

So, we ask, who is He?

The disciples had to answer.

“Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, ‘Who do the crowds say I am?’They replied, ‘Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life.’ ‘But what about you?’ he asked. ‘Who do you say I am?’ Peter answered, ‘God’s Messiah.’” Luke 9:18-20

Each and every one of us also must face this question. Who is He? Who is this One named Jesus?

Now, please don’t misunderstand. Your decision of who He is, in no way determines who He is. That has been established since eternity past. He is the Creator, the King of Kings, The Lord of Lords. He is the Suffering Servant who gave His life so we might live. But He is also the King who will come one day to rule and reign. He is the One before whom all will someday bow. He is God.

No, your decision in no way determines who He is.

Nevertheless, you still must decide, because your decision determines who you are.
