We live in a day when what sells best in the Christian world are books, sermons, and television programs that are aimed directly at you – “This Is Your Day,” “You Are the Reason for the Season,” “Become a Better You,” “It’s Your Time,” “The Me I Want to Be,” “The Life You Have Always Wanted,” and similar titles orbiting around the Youniverse. We need to take all the arrows that point to YOU and aim them where they belong – The Lord.
He is what this is all about. It is not about you; it has never been about you and never will be about you. It is, always has been, and always will be about Him. We need to rediscover who it is we are following; who we are disciples of… Jesus is much more than our personal Lord and Savior. He is:
Your Shepherd, your Advocate, your Mediator, your Bridegroom, your Conqueror, your Lion, your Lamb, your Sacrifice, your Manna, your Smitten Rock, your Living water, your food, your drink, your good and abundant land, your dwelling place, your Sabbath, your new moon, your Jubilee, your new wine, your feast, your aroma, your anchor, your wisdom, your peace, your comfort, your Healer, your joy, your glory, your power, your strength, your wealth, your victory, your redemption your Prophet, your Priest, your kinsman redeemer, your teacher, your guide, your liberator, your deliverer, your Prince, your Captain, your vision, your sight, your beloved, your way, your truth, your life, your author, your finisher, your beginning, your end, your age, your eternity – your all and all.
He is the same yesterday, today, and forever; yet He is new every morning. But beyond all this, He is your King, your Judge, and the True Witness.
So, time to exit your youniverse and enter His Kingdom and begin to worship, adore, and see the true Jesus for who He is and bow your heart and then your knee to Him. It is, after all, all about Him.
