The new Jesus – 20.12.2014
Then Jesus came to them and said,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. …
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28, 18-20
I would rewrite it so: the new Jesus. Because He was a human like you and me before He died. HE had hunger and thirst, stress and peace. He didn’t use his divine power because He wanted to be a human and He was. As a human He could sacrifice himself on the cross for us. But then He has been raised and exalted by God. So Jesus sits enthroned! HE is the king of heavenly hosts, all the prayers, praise and gratitude belong to Him. HE is the Creator and Upholder of the universe. When we pray we see Jesus as a human before us often. It is not wrong but He is more! HE is really the king of kings! And this powerful Lord to who has been given all the power in heaven and on earth – He is with us today, tomorrow and always. Shouldn’t it make us strong and brave? There is no problems, everything is possible for him. Shouldn’t it give us more trust? This powerful Lord is on my side – shouldn’t it take all my fears?
Jesus, my powerful Lord, it is so great that You are with me today!! How could I live without You? My gratitude, my praise and prayer belong to You! Thank you for giving me power and wisdom today so that I could live this day through and do your will.
