Christmas is a good time of the year to ponder this age-old question Jesus once asked his disciples; “Who do you say that I am?”
Is Jesus more than a babe who lay in a manger over 2000 years ago?
Names are important. They reveal the character of a person. Most people names are usually forgotten within 50 years of their death. Jesus has many names and not one of them has been forgotten.
God whispered this same question into my heart and mind this past year.
“Who do you say that I Am, Glenda?”
When the question came I ran to the computer, eager to record who I believe Jesus is. As I wrote, the fiery trial I had been experiencing ended. God gave me a new song and a new desire to share who Jesus is.
Part #1 (I will be sharing the remainder of what I wrote in the weeks to come)
You are the Christ,
the Son of the Living God (Matthew 16:13-18).
The Rock I’ve built my faith upon (Matthew 16: 13-18; Luke 6:47-49)
Costly cornerstone (Isaiah 28:16).
Precious Corner Stone (1 Peter 2:6).
Chief Cornerstone (Matthew 21:42).
Choice stone (1 Peter 2:4).
Anchor of my soul (Heb. 6:19).
Shepherd of the sheep
Door of the Sheep
Shepherd who knows His own
His own know His voice
Will not follow voice of stranger
The LORD, my Shepherd
Shepherd of my soul
Voice of Shepherd
Calling my name Leading me out
Putting forth his sheep into green pastures Going before me
Preparing the way
Life giver (John 3:16).
Lays down life for sheep
Gives Abundant life
His sheep will not perish
None can snatch me out of His Hand
None can snatch me out of Father’s Hand
Jesus and Father are One
Sets table before me…even in presence of my enemies Anoints my head with oil (John 10 s.v. Psalm 23 s.v.).
Who do you say Jesus is?
Please feel free to share. God bless you as you prepare to celebrate the coming of the Christ Child this year.
By faith through grace alone,
