Who Is Jesus

Matthew 16:13-16 13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”  (NIV)

Just who is this man Jesus whose birth we celebrate?  Some say He never existed in spite of all the facts of history and eye witnesses.  Some say He was just a good man.  Some say He was just another prophet.  There are many different answers but only one right answer.  We read in John 1:14 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.  No one who has ever walked on this earth has had more of an impact on all generations during and after His presence on this earth.  He is the only one ever born of a virgin – necessary as the Son of God, the Word made flesh and the spotless lamb through whom all may be forgiven of their separation from God and adopted as God’s children.  Satan couldn’t tempt Him  Harrod couldn’t kill Him, unbelievers can’t hide Him.  He lives with our Father, God and will return to this earth to bring all God’s children home.  No one born in such lowly means could ever have the impact that this baby, the Son of God, continues to have on the people of this earth.  Let us thank God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit for loving us more than we can comprehend.
