If you had to describe yourself with three words, what would they be? I heard a commercial for a local newspaper that made me rethink my cancelled subscription! They described themselves as being “Credible, Compelling, Complete“. Then the news came on, they did the same thing, describing themselves as “Dedicated, Determined, Dependable“. I am wondering how I would describe me? I’ll give it some thought before I end this article, are you thinking about yours? I immediately thought how the “C” words described Jesus; Credible: John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. Compelling: Mark 11:15-18 So they came to Jerusalem. Then Jesus went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who sold doves. And He would not allow anyone to carry wares through the temple. Then He taught, saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’” Complete: Matthew 16:15-17 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. He was Son of God and flesh man; I would say that made Him Complete! Then I thought about the “D’s”, Dedicated: Hebrews 4:14-16 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Determined: We know that when Jesus took the challenge of the cross, he was determined to take the keys of death and hell away from Satan, Dependable: Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
There is no way to measure up completely to the man that Jesus was in the flesh, I’m thankful, He loves me just the way I am. A song says, “When He was on the cross, I was on His mind“! What are my three words? Soulful, Seeking, Sincere!
