TGIF - I Am Second... Let Me Tell You About Who Is First

I Am Second... Let Me Tell You About Who Is First
Inspired by the “I am Second” movement and Jeff Jones
Song: Background - Lecrae

I’ve never met anybody who, in describing Jesus says He’s a bad guy. Everybody that I know believes that Jesus was a wonderful person, a great teacher, a great philosopher. But when you actually look at who He said He was, when you read books like Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, He claimed to be much more than a great teacher, or great leader or great compassionate person. He claimed to be God Himself. Who looked down from Heaven above, stood up from His glorious throne where He was being praised and living the GREAT life, and said “Excuse Me, My children need Me.” Who then came to this planet, took on flesh to live among people just like you and me with all of our hurt, suffering and sin. He did this because the Bible says first of all that He wanted to “identify” with us. He wanted to know what it was like to be us, to live in the world, to be relatable. And then He came to suffer and die on the cross for our sins to take the punishment that you and I Deserve. “When you ever heard about a hero dying for the villains?” – Andy Mineo…We should have died 1,000 deaths for our sins, but He died so that WE could Live. He SAVED us…So when you think about who Jesus is, He didn’t come to be just a great man. He came to make it possible for us to know God.

That is who is First. Therefore, everything you do in life should be for Him; to please Him, to serve Him, to make Him happy. Everything. Because EVERYTHING He did, was for You.
