Respond


Every person must make a response to whom Jesus is. C. S. Lewis was right, in his classic book Mere Christianity, when he wrote, Either [Jesus] was, and is, the Son of God: or else a mad man or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.

God sent his Son, born of a woman … —Galatians 4:4

… yet was without sin. —Hebrews 4:15

… bore our sins in his body on the [cross] … —1 Peter 2:24

… to bring you to God. —1 Peter 3:18

These [accounts] are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. —John 20:31

Every skeptic or seeker has a choice ... God leaves it up to you. There is one question that may confirm your choice. You know Him as Lord—you call Him Lord, but are you doing the things He says?
