What is your perspective on Jesus?

What is your perspective on Jesus?

Is Jesus your teacher and prophet or is He your savior and Lord? Your perspective will impact how you receive Jesus.

36 When one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. 37 A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. 38 As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.

39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is-that she is a sinner.”

40 Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.”
“Tell me, teacher,” he said. Luke 7:36-40

Simon the Pharisee saw Jesus as a teacher and compared him to a prophet. The Pharisee’s perspective was focused on learning and keeping the law which are the rules and regulations of religion.

However, the prostitute saw Jesus as her Savior and Lord. Her sins had been totally forgiven, once and for all, forever. She worshipped and anointed Jesus as Lord. These are two distinct perspectives about Jesus.

Your perspective of Jesus will affect your reception. When you move from viewing Jesus as being a teacher and prophet to being Savior and LORD, a Shalom peace which passes all understanding will overwhelm your being. Your sins, guilt, shame, fear, regret, condemnation, abuse and anxiety is totally washed clean forever and ever by Jesus’ blood. You are redeemed and healed by the blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross. You are made righteous in Jesus Christ.

Your perspective has changed from trying to learn from a teacher about God to receiving everything He has for His children. He gives you His love and gift of Righteousness. You receive HIS adoption as His child. You receive a new identity.

Lord, I want everything YOU have for me. I want to receive every good and precious gift you have for me. I am your beloved child. Your favor is on me today.

Thank you for being my Savior, Lord, Redeemer, Master and King.
