Daily Devotional | Why It Is All About Jesus — Part 2

John 3:13 NKJV
“No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man (Jesus Christ) who is in heaven.”
 
 
“No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven,  that is,  the Son of Man (Jesus Christ) who is in heaven.” (John 3:13 NKJV). So, when it comes to God, eternity and Heaven, the only authority is the one who have known all. This is what religion is trying to do, but Christ is the experience, since He is the mystery!Religion versus Christianity is a constant battle. The war between good and evil is eternal. Don’t think for a second the end is near! “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” (Matthew 11:12 NKJV)
 
The brutal and shameful death on the cross of Jesus fulfilled that very scripture in Matthew. He died to take back all people (those that accepts and believes in Him) for God. Religion focuses on things, people, self, actions, but Christianity lives by faith in Christ alone.
 
Why is it all about Jesus?
8.  Jesus Is Your DELIVERER: “If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36)
 
9.  Jesus is Your FELLOWSHIP: “Behold, I stand at the door (your heart), and knock: if any man (you) hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup (fellowship) with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20)
 
10. Jesus is your EXAMPLE: “For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:” (1 Peter 2:21 NKJV) Note that the greatest example from Jesus is doing the Father’s will.
 
11.  Jesus is Your COMPANION: “I  am  a companion of all who fear You, And of those who keep Your precepts.” (Psalm 119:63 NKJV) This will be fulfilled when you receive the Holy Spirit. He is there to conform, console and counsel us. What a mighty God we serve!
 
12.  Jesus is Your BROTHER: “For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” (Matthew 12:50 NKJV)  Are you doing the will of God?
 
13.  Jesus is Your SECURITY: “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given  them  to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch  them  out of My Father’s hand. (John 10:27-29 NKJV).  God is faithful, and will not change this.
 
14. Jesus is Your SUFFICIENCY: “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as  being  from ourselves, but our sufficiency  is  from God, (2 Corinthians 3:5 NKJV). Is there anything you are believing and waiting on God for? It is done! Amen. Just be patient, and the miracle God will bring it to pass.
 
15. Jesus is Your FULFILLMENT: ” Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring  it  to pass.” (Psalm 37:4, 5 NKJV). Your dreams can only come true if Jesus is the architect.
 
16. Jesus is Your EVERYTHING: “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19 NKJV).
 
God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are one. The three-in-one existence revealed to us. God, the Father, and the Holy Spirit are spiritual, but Christ is “the image of the invisible God”, the Messiah and Savior. Be wise and know the truth about God; “Look to the heavens and see; And behold the clouds— They are higher than you. If you sin, what do you accomplish against Him?  If your transgressions are multiplied, what do you do to Him? If you are righteous, what do you give Him? Or what does He receive from your hand? Your wickedness affects a man such as you, And your righteousness a son of man.” (Job 35:5-8 NKJV)
 
Is there anything about Jesus Christ you disagree with? Search and study the scripture, you will find  the answer you have been waiting for. May God reveal this mystery to you, in Jesus Name, Amen.
 
Scripture of the day: ‘For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV
