This week, we have been investigating a closed case. We have seen the clues and evidence that lead us to answers about who Jesus is.
We have seen how He is Emmanuel (God with Us), Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. We have seen how Jesus can be near to us even if we can’t see Him. We have seen how He sees and speaks to the secrets of our hearts, not our outward appearances. We have seen how He has power of everything, and how nothing is too difficult for Him. We have seen how the sin in our hearts is the biggest problem that we have, and how Jesus is hurrying to joyfully forgive us of our sins. We have seen how Jesus has conquered sin and death, comes to each of us individually in the midst of our sin and doubt, and helps us to believe.
We have seen, above all, what the Bible says about Jesus” that Jesus loves us all individually. He loves you, He loves me. He is the Son of God sent in love that whosoever believes in Him may not perish, but live forever. Long before His birth the Bible gives His job description: Emmanuel, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace—His life, death, and resurrection was planned all along.
He came to Earth to save us all. He came to Earth to save you. He came to Earth to save me.
The more we understand all of this, the more our hearts will burn within us.
Have you seen Jesus? Do you believe even though you have not seen Him?
The case is between you and God. Is the case closed for you?
