Unlimited: The Greatest Truth of Christianity
Apr 3, 2020 758
We believe… and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world (John 4:42, NKJV).
The greatest truth of Christianity is that Christ is the spotless Son of God, the divine Saviour.
In a dream Jacob saw a ladder extending from heaven to earth (Gen 28:10-22). Jesus is that ladder (Jn 1). By his divinity, he reaches the heavens. By his humanity, he touches us on earth. If we break the ladder on either end, we have no Savior, no connection with heaven. The heavens remain silent and empty, and earth is but a grave.
The very first truth about Christianity is that Christ is divine, the spotless Son of God. Unless we are clear on who Christ is, we will not be clear on anything else.
The cross is the only lever that can lift the world to God. It is the magnetic attraction that draws men and women out of the maelstrom of sin. The cross has revealed the love of God in a way nothing else could.
A true Christian is clear on the nature of Christ. Christ is our spotless sacrifice, the Creator of all things, and the Redeemer of the world.

Eli’s Reflection: Are you clear on who Jesus is? If someone were to ask you who Jesus is, what would you say? Write down your answer, memorise it, and ask God to give you the opportunity to share it with someone in this coming week.
