Then, surrounded by the Pharisees, Jesus asked them a question: “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?” Matt. 22:41-42
Lord Jesus, the question you put to Pharisees the day before your arrest, remains the most important question for us to answer. The more we study the Scriptures, the more we realize there’s always much more to you.
You are the Creator, Sustainer, and Restorer of all things—the Alpha and Omega, and everything in between. Angels worship you, birds depend on you.
You are the Second Adam, not our second chance—both David’s son and God’s Son. You lived a life of perfect obedience for us, and exhausted all judgment against us. By you, we are completely forgiven; in you, we are perfectly righteousness.
You are our reigning King, and returning Bridegroom—sovereign over days, dominions, and dandelions. Bruised reeds love your appearing—children dance, and demons tremble. You are gentle and lowly, and high and exalted.
And wonder of wonders, because you are this and way more, we are in your heart, and on your mind, all the time. This doesn’t make us “special,” it makes us yours. You know us perfectly, and delight in us fully.
There’s not a moment you’re not loving, praying, and advocating for us. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Continue to free us from under-thinking about you, and under-believing who we are in you. So very Amen we pray, in your most glorious and grace-full name.
