"Who do you say I am?"

– Jesus Christ

Jesus, also known as Jesus Christ, was born in Bethlehem, a small Jewish town, around 6-4 BCE. When he was about 30 years of age, he began publicly teaching about the Kingdom of God, performing many miraculous signs. He gave sight to the blind and raised the dead back to life. Jesus also claimed to be God. Some people find this claim very contentious!

Who is Jesus?

Could Jesus really be God?

The great English writer C. S. Lewis says in his book, Mere Christianity:

“You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon, or you can fall at his feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that option open to us. He did not intend to.”

Not only did Jesus claim to be God, but he also claimed to be the only way to God:

“Jesus told him [Thomas], “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
John 14:6 (NLT)

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.  Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.
Romans 3:23-26 (NLT)

Seeing Our Work as Sacred

Observation:

From today’s verses, what significant observations can you make about the calling and resources of God’s representatives to the world?

Deeper Reflection
FINDING MEANING, REST AND JOY IN OUR WORK HAS GOT a lot to do with Christians’ ministry in the marketplace and the task of discipling Singapore. It is only when we have recognised and dealt with the inner life issues pertaining to the paradigms regarding our work that we can have the right perspectives and postures to influence the marketplace and society that God has placed us in. For we reproduce after our own kind. We want to reproduce the right kind of disciples – a Christlike kind!However, we must not neglect the outer life to which God has also called us, that is, a life of ministry and service to others for the sake of Christ. In our God-given vocation, wherever God has placed us in His service, we are to use whatever God has given us in order to accomplish His will. Wherever we are. We remember that the great prophet Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt and across the Red Sea. But let us not forget that Moses’ commissioning took place amid the daily mundane course of his work.17 So lest we think that our daily vocations are insignificant, remember that wherever we are, God calls us for His purposes.Whatever we have. At times, we may feel that the skills in our workplace have little to do with extending God’s Kingdom. But look at how God used the simple staff of Moses to perform mighty miracles in His name.18 So never underestimate the training and experience that your work gives to you, for God is using even these to accomplish His will.
17 When God called Moses, he was tending sheep for his father-in-law, Jethro (and for the past 40 years too!): see Acts 7:20-34. 18 Exodus 4:17; 7-10; 14.
