When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.”Luke 5:8
Who is Jesus, exactly? No, I don’t want an answer about what He’s done to save sinners. I want to know who you think Jesus is. Who is He to you? There’s a big push in Christianity in general to allow everyone to define for themselves who Jesus is, as if that was somehow up to us to decide. Forget what the Bible actually says, and just let your feelings tell you who Jesus is. He’s kind and accepting, and a personal relationship with Him is more of a buddy system. Jesus is my blue jean buddy, my pal, someone who won’t judge me or tell me what I’m doing is wrong. He’s someone to hang out with, someone to talk to, someone who will be a casual companion no matter what the activity. But to define Jesus this way is to deny a huge part of who He actually is.
