Well, that’s both an easy question and a difficult question to answer. Why?
Well, here’s the easy part:
In a nutshell, Jesus is God incarnate – God in a visible, tangible way, possessing infinite wisdom, infinite power, and uncompromising infinite compassionate agape (unconditional) love. He’s everything and anything. He is the creator of the universe. He has always existed, and will always exist. He is invincible. He is all powerful. The world cannot contain Him, the world cannot explain Him away. He is all things good and kind. He is merciful. He is a miracle worker. He is righteous. He is glorious. He is life itself.
He is my protector, my rock, my fortress, my light, my guide, my foundation, my shepherd, my joy, my comfort, my shield, my strength, my healer, my advocate, my courage, my encouragement, my leader, my barrier buster, my confidant, my peace, my sustainer. He is my Lord. He is my Savior. He breaks the chains that are my strongholds.
He will never leave or abandon me. He will never betray me. He will never forget me. He will always love me.
It’s a difficult question to answer because in our human wisdom, we can never fully describe just who Jesus is. Because whatever you think He is – He is more, so much more than that.
This side of the earth, we will never, ever be able to comprehend all that Jesus is.
Put simply, who is Jesus to me? He is my everything! And, I never, ever want to be without Him.
