People have been calling Jesus the king of the universe (the ‘Christ’) and the son of God for almost 2,000 years now.
Have you ever wondered what all the fuss is about?
There’s a famous song from the Bible (Psalm 23) which pictures God as the source of satisfaction — it says ‘the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want’ and then poetically describes the ways God meets our longings. Another song a little later in that same song book (Psalm 34) says we should ‘taste and see’ the goodness of God. We should try God. We should test the experience, the emotional satisfaction, and the reasonableness of faith by trying out belief.
Jesus is the one those Psalms point to. He calls himself ‘the good shepherd’, and he is where we ‘taste and see’ the goodness of God (1 Peter 2:3).
What is it that makes Jesus so compelling for so many people? Here are some ideas that might prompt you to give Jesus a try.
