15 “But what about you?” he [Jesus] asked. “Who do you say I am?”
This is the question of questions and it would appear that even creation knows the answer.
Man? Not so much.
We humans not only doubt the existence of God himself, but we question if the world we know was even created. (Just ask Stephen Hawkings) However, say authors Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola, the creation is completely occupied with Christ and they point out how in some detail. The following is not an exact quote but it is largely their work that I write here.
When God spoke existence into being, He wove Jesus Christ into the very fabric of it.
16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
God created light and He said “Let there be light.”
12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
God created water and He said “Let the water be gathered to one place.”
10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
God created life and He said “Let the land produce living creatures”
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Jesus refers to himself in many ways with created things…
He is the “true vine” – John 15:1
He is the “bread of life” – John 6:35
He is the “sun” – Malachi 4:2
He is the “morning star” – 2 Peter 1:19
He is the “true lamb” – John 1:29
He is the “model man” – Romans 5:14
And He is the “real Sabbath” – Colossians 2:16-17
When I first came to faith I remember that it seemed I saw the world with new eyes. I realized that everything physical that I looked at had significant spiritual implications. The clouds that floated past had purpose and were not just mere cosmic accident and the hustling-bustling people in our world were no longer just cosmic accidental pieces of advanced star-matter, everything had reason and no longer could I shrug off the atrocities to the countless suffering humans around me.
“The Lord Jesus is [truly] written in the bloodstream of the universe.”
Take a few moments today and consider how you might answer our Lord’s question yourself.
“What about you?” he [Jesus] asked. “Who do you say I am?”
