What Think Ye of Christ?
Most of us are called Christians without really knowing who Christ is or what Christianity means.
Jesus of Nazareth, after healing multitudes of sick people, giving sight to the blind, raising the paralyzed, casting out demons, miraculously feeding thousands of multitudes, and many other miracles, asked of His disciples: “Whom do men say that I am? And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.” Mark 8:27-28
Do not many so-called “Christians” today give the same answer? We hear people say, “Oh, Jesus must have been a good man or a teacher, a prophet of God,” etc.
Then Jesus asked His disciples, who had witnessed all His miracles and sat under His teaching, “Whom say ye that I am?” (v.29) Peter immediately answered without hesitation, “Thou art the Christ.”
What Does the Bible Say About Christ?
God declared: “And there came a voice from Heaven, saying, Thou art My Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Mark 1:11
Isaiah prophesied 800 years before Christ: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
The Unclean Spirits recognized Him: “And unclean spirits, when they saw Him (Jesus), fell down before Him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.” Mark 3:11
John the Baptist gave witness: “And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.” John 1:34 “And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this Book (Bible): But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His Name.” John 20:30, 31 Jesus said: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” John 14:6 “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19:10 “Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Now the issue is clear through the Scriptures that Christ is the Son of God, but if you also want to be sure for yourself, and have everlasting life through His Name you must:
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.” Acts 3:19.
“He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:18.
“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” I John 5:12. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16.
Repent and receive Christ as Saviour today!
