WHO is JESUS to you?

In John 18:4, the Lord Jesus Christ ask a question “whom seek ye?” The shepherds sought the Savior, the wise men sought the King of the Jews; King Herod sought a rival; the Greek believers sought the wisdom of the ages, and in this verse, the Temple guards sought one Jesus of Nazareth, a local troublemaker. Everyone sought for the same person, but each saw Him differently. I guess we truly do find what we seek.
If you see yourself as someone with a reputation, like King Herod did, Jesus is a possible rival to the throne of your life, and Jesus must therefore die. However, if you see yourself as a lowly outcasts, like the shepherds, Jesus, the Savior, is the best news you have ever heard. How we see Jesus is determined by how we see ourselves. Some see Jesus has an archaic myth when men believed that God could have wrath and punish sinners. They see no need of Jesus. Some “Christians” see Jesus as a means to the blessed life of financial and physical prosperity. Some see Him has only a comforting friend who understands our needs, and who knows we really didn’t mean to do wrong when we cursed, lied, cheated, committed fornication, and stayed out of church. But then some, who have honestly looked into the mirror of God’s word, and have seen there that wretched sinner that they really are, come broken to the Christ of Calvary, CRYING OUT, “O GOD, have mercy on me a sinner”. Afterwards, they walk and talk with Him who joyously saved their soul. So, I ask you today, “whom seek ye?”

Yours and Christ,

SCHOOL has started!

Once again the school year has started, some of the children could not wait to get back and see all their friends, while others walked with their head down and their hearts hardened hating to see summer end. In Hebrews 3:8; the Bible says “harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, and the day of temptation in the wilderness;.”
The illustration used is that of Israel in the wilderness after leaving Egypt. It wasn’t long after departing from their slavery that their hearts were hardened, and they tempted God. As a result, that generation was never able to enter “his rest”. Pictures are important in Scripture. Israel entering the promised land is not a picture of a Christian entering heaven, but rather of a believer living the victorious Christian life. I’m glad there will not be  enemies and giants to battle in heaven! This generation never entered into the rest, the promise land. Why? Because of a hard heart. The reason given for their hardened hearts was rebellion (verses 8, 9).
How often Christians end up  rebelling against God, Not from a lack of opportunity to learn, But from  negligence of the word of God. At times, they just chose not to believe His word. At other times their love of sin led them to their hardened hearts.

Sadly my friends,there are many  today that have grown hard hearts against God’s word. They no longer listen for His voice, rejoice in His blessings,and many have even lost the sense of His conviction.
