Who Is Jesus to You?

Hello there. How are you today? How is life treating you? Really, truthfully, how are you doing? Allow me to ask you a question: Do you know of Jesus? What do you know of Him? Who is Jesus to you? What does that mean for your life? Are you experiencing the life transformation through Jesus?

Before Jesus went to be at the right hand of the Throne of God, He told us to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. We are to tell everyone we see, every place we go, about the life changing power and love of Jesus Christ.

I am to be about my Father’s business, and it should be on my lips at all times. My every conversation should be infused with life-giving power, and that only happens if I am talking about or talking to Jesus.

I have often thought that my spiritual gifts do not include evangelism per se, but more teaching and discipleship, as if I am excused from interacting with others until they are ready to be discipled. But that does not excuse me from speaking about Jesus. He should be a part of my normal, everyday conversations. As Scripture says, “I believe, therefore I speak.” If He really is all who I claim He is in my life, why do I not speak His name more often throughout the normal course of my day?

It’s time to start. I believe, therefore I speak.

So, who is Jesus to you? Are you experiencing His life changing power? If you do not know Him or are not living in His power, I would love to be able to tell you about this One man who changed the course of all history, and of life itself.

Be blessed, friends, with the Grace and Peace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Wow, all I can say is AMEN! Even we as believers need to ask the question of ourselves "Am I living in his power ?".

    I'm with you 100% in that I never saw my gifts in the Evangelism area. I see now that teaching Discipleship is like Evangelizing the Believers to become more like Christ. And the more we engage in this activity the more likly we are going to be more comfortable talking with non-believers about Christ. As we focus on our strengths, our other gifts are lifted up also.

    God's blessings to Okongo, you and the girls!!!! You are such an inspiration to us. We look forward to your return.

  2. Thanks for some challenging questions. I do know Him! And He is revealing more and more to me each day -- and lately He is really challening me with what my life looks like day to day. I know it is too safe and comfortable.
