Do You Know Who Jesus Is?

[Isaiah 49:3,5-6] [1 Corinthians 1:1-3] [John 1:29-34]

John the Baptist prepared the people for the coming of Messiah Jesus Christ. Yet, how strange & impactful words the disciples of John the Baptist heard that day. Their leader told them that Jesus is the Lamb of God; that he represented what all those thousands of lambs over the generations have symbolised, and that he not only take their sins away, but that of the whole gentile world as well! John also emphasized Jesus humanity (Jesus was born after John) & his deity (yet, Jesus existed before John). And based on a sign God gave him, John the Baptist further attested that Jesus will baptise with the Holy Spirit & that He is the Son of God. We need to realise that while we are children of God through baptism, Jesus is the eternal Son of God & is in equal standing with his Heavenly Father & the Holy Spirit. We are sinners & Jesus is God’s only Saviour from sin. Let us fully comprehend who Jesus really is, before we proclaim him to the world & what He came to do!
