“And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!” John 1:36.
How many “hats” do you wear? We all fill many roles from day to day. Father, mother, grandparent, child, teacher, mechanic, doctor, nurse, accountant, lawyer, architect, manager, clerk, server, cashier, host, friend, neighbor, confidant, counselor and so forth. But whatever talent and ability God has bestowed upon us, we simply cannot be all things to all people. There are areas of weaknesses in my life that simply will not be strengthened no matter how hard I try, but that is where Jesus steps in.
Jesus is all things to all people. Everything we need in our God, He is. God is pleased that all His fullness would dwell in Christ (Col. 1:19). In John 1:35-51, we see Jesus given many titles—Lamb of God, Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of Joseph, Rabbi, Son of God, King of Israel and the Son of Man. As John the Baptist and the first disciples began understanding who Jesus was, it is interesting that they saw Him satisfying many different needs. These titles remind us that He is the perfect sacrifice we need, being the fulfillment of the prophecies and God in the flesh. Everything we need we find in Jesus Christ. I may not be the smartest, the wisest, or the most talented, but everything I really need I find in God, through His Son, Jesus.
JUST A THOUGHT
Will you find everything you need in Jesus today?
