Who is this Jesus …?

Jan. 3, 2012

“The Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood. We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-kind glory, like Father, like Son, Generous inside and out, true from start to finish.” John 1:14 The Message

He’s moved in … if you belong to Him. The life that Jesus is living in you is one where he has literally moved into your life by His Spirit. He’s moved into every relationship .. into your work .. into your thoughts .. and into everything your life is connected to. He’s moved into the center of your life. Who is He…? He is our “one true God” .. “generous inside and out”. He’s more than the words. He is the One who dwells in your life with all of the messed up and broken parts of you. He’s moved into the whole history of your life. He’s moved in as Savior … truth claims your life. He’s moved into every corner of your life. He’s moved in as Lord of your life. That’s who you trust .. who you believe in .. who you accepted .. who you received .. and who has exchanged your life for His life. That means your life is now part of His kingdom purpose. Your life has meaning because Jesus has moved in and His life begins to grow and His love begins to heal and is making you whole .. even at this moment. When Jesus moves in it is permanent. You may resist his renovations but His love never fails .. so He isn’t moving out. This Jesus who lives in your life .. your neighborhood .. is clothed with glory .. majesty .. and strength. Those are more than words. They are the “true from start to finish” promises of God’s love and life for you. He’s moved into your life with grace and truth and they are inseparable from who He will always be in you .. for you .. and through you. Jesus wants you to live and experience the freedom rule of His life in you today. He’s promised: He’ll keep you on your feet .. even when your stumble. He’s that strong .. that true .. and that much in love with you. And He only takes a moment …

“And now to him who can keep you on your feet, standing tall in his bright presence, fresh and celebrating — to our one God, our only Savior, through Jesus Christ, our Master, be glory, majesty, strength, and rule before all time, and now, and to the end of all time. Yes.” Jude 24-25 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
