Jesus is NOT Your Homeboy
Jesus is GOD. The Great I AM. The Lion of Judah. The Lamb of God. Creator. Healer. Almighty. Messiah.
He is NOT your “homeboy.”
Can we talk to him any time we want about anything we want anywhere we want? Yes! And that is AMAZING. We can know Jesus through the Bible, we can experience Him through the Holy Spirit, we can have an intimate, personal relationship with GOD in the flesh!
But we cannot forget that He is holy. We cannot relegate him to “buddy” status.
What Jesus has done for us is unbelievable – He didn’t just teach us some good things or give us a great example to follow – He SAVED us from eternal separation from God. He GAVE us the opportunity to spend forever in heaven with Him. He HELPS us every day in so many ways, to live the life He has planned for us.
Jesus should be praised, worshipped, adored, revered. We should crave time with him, we should strive to honor him and to glorify him, to make him known.
We don’t need to make him “likeable,” “relatable,” or “cool.” He is God. Our job is to respond to His grace with complete surrender and wholehearted worship.
