Why Jesus?

Understanding Who Jesus is and Why He matters

I am The Way, The Truth and The Life
Jesus The Messiah (John 14:56)

Jesus is the most important human being who has ever lived. In order to know the meaning and purpose of your life, it is vitally important to know who Jesus is and why He helps us to know what is really real.

Who Jesus Really Is

One of the most important truths about Jesus is also one that challenges us the most. Although Jesus was a human being who walked on planet earth over 2000 years ago, He existed before this as the eternal Son - God Himself. Consider this passage:

6 “Being [beginning] in the form of God
He (Jesus) did not consider equality with God
Something to be grasped, [taken advantage of]
7 But He emptied Himself
The form of a slave he took on
Like other people He was born,
And in the appearance of a human He was found,
8 Humbling Himself,
By becoming obedient to the point of death
Death by The Cross!
9 This is why God highly exalted Him
And granted Him The Name
The one above all names,
10 So that in the name of Jesus
Every knee will bend -
(In heaven and on earth and under the earth!)
11 And all tongues publicly proclaim that
The Lord is Jesus Christ!
To the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:6-11)

There is a lot in this short passage. But notice three things: 1) Jesus existed in the very form of God, 2) He chose not to cling to His "Godness" but humbly took on human form, and 3) after being obedient to the point of death on The Cross, Father God has exalted Him again so that He is Lord over everything.

The next couple of points that we are going to make build on the foundation that Jesus existed as God before He was a human.

Jesus and the Question of ORIGIN

In order to know the meaning and purpose of your life, you will have to answer two foundational questions: 1) Where did I come from? 2) Where am I headed? Once you have answered these questions you will have a much better idea how to live life.

The first question, "Where did I come from?" or "Where did we (the human race) come from?" is our Question of Origin. The answer that the Scriptures give us is one that points us to Jesus Christ:

"For everything was created by Him (JESUS), in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities— all things have been created through Him and for Him." [Colossians 1:16]

The Scriptures make it clear that you were created by Jesus, for Jesus.

Jesus and the Question of DESTINY

Next, we need to answer The Question of Destiny - "Where is my life heading?", or "How will it all end?" Again, the Scriptures point us toward Jesus:

{God} made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure that He planned in Him (Jesus) as a plan for the fullness of time—to bring everything together in Christ (Jesus), both things in heaven and things on earth in Him. [Ephesians 1:9–10]

At the end of all things, EVERYTHING will be brought together in Christ. Jesus is present at or beginning; He is present at our end.

Jesus and the Question of MEANING AND PURPOSE

We are living in the Last Days - the final period in this current age in the history of planet Earth. There is more to come, but it will be very different from what exists now.

Now, in the present, Father God speaks to us in and through His one unique Son, Jesus.

 Long ago God spoke to the fathers by the prophets at different times and in different ways. In these last days, He has spoken to us by His Son (Jesus Christ). God has appointed Him heir of all things and made the universe through Him.  The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact expression of His nature, sustaining all things by His powerful word. [Hebrews 1:1–3]
