If you spend anytime reading my blog, I hope you know this question is not referring to my fundamental belief that Jesus is the Son of God.
So who is Jesus, to you?
Is He still a tiny baby in a manger who you think about once or twice a year? Someone you pray to only when you want something, and when your life isn't going as planned?
Is He a friend in time of need, someone who sticks closer than a brother? Someone who's there for you when everyone else seems not to care?
Is He your Savior? Someone who knows the ugliness of your sin, and loves you enough to take on your sin so you could be reconciled with God?
Is He your Lord? Someone you've surrendered your life to? Someone you not only love, but strive to be like and serve?
Jesus has been all these to me at different stages in my life, but right now I need Him to be Lord over my life.
I'm hoping to re-establish Jesus' lordship over my life this next year. I've fallen into some laziness and bad habits in certain areas of my life which have kept me from experiencing the fullness that God has for me. I believe if Jesus regains control of these areas in my life than I will be back on the path He has for me.
So who is Jesus?
If you don't know, now might be a good time to figure it out.
