I wonder if this is the perfect question.

Isn’t this the question that every person who has ever lived on this planet needs to ask, especially those of us who live post Jesus being on earth?

What do I think about Jesus?

It’s the question that is answered in every cell of creation, every ray of sunlight and every molecule we breathe because he made it all (John 1:3). The answer is in his power that holds the whole world together (Colossians 1:17). The answer is in the mercy he pours out on me and my rebellion against him (Ephesians 2:4-5). The answer is seen in his blood that was spilled in my place even when I hated him (Romans 5:8). The answer is in the massive love that stopped at nothing to buy me back for eternity with him (Ephesians 2:6). The answer is in the complete annihilation of every dark force that will ever threaten me, including death, when he arose from death (Colossians 2:12-15)

Which leaves only one question left to answer…

What do I think about Jesus?

Is he Lord – like David declared? Or is he a threat, an inconvenience, an annoyance to my agenda like the Pharisees?

This is the perfect question that everyone will need to answer. What will my answer be?!

Jesus, the only response I can think of is humility and contrition and thankfulness and surrender and awe. What do I think about You? – You are Lord! Amen

    Love it. Very tight. Very confronting.

    How many irrelevant questions did it take until I realised that instead of asking the tricky questions of the Pharisees, I needed to get real and ask the real questions of my heart.

    Jesus you were there for the creation of the universe. When my life gets tough can you please guide me. Thanks Jesus my friend.
