This world gets so caught up in labels and titles… it helps to classify you, so we don’t really have to get to know anyone. My name is __________ and I am a ___________. What else does the world need to know?

To serve you coffee… nothing

To sell you something… nothing

But if they want to get to know you, they must go deeper. Social media tends to cheapen that process because we can hide behind filters and memes!

So how do we really get to know someone? We spend time with them. We hear about their life. We ask questions and really listen. We discover truths about them that the world may miss because they hasten to place labels…

What about Jesus Christ?

First, how does the world label Him? Some call him a good man that lived a long-time ago. Others call him a myth. Some say he was just a prophet and nothing more. There are more labels but that will suffice for now.

So how do we know the truth and not some sound bit or cliche? We get to know Him! We read what He wrote… we listen to His story… we spend time talking with Him. What will you call Him once you get to know Him?

Let me tell you what I call Him –

Savior! He saved me from the mess I made

Transformer! He took me at my worst and began a work in me that changed everything.

My Strength! On my own, I am powerless over this world but in Him I am powerful!

Conqueror! He conquered the enemy and the power of death over humanity!

My Protector!

Friend! He tells that if I do what He tells me to do in His word, I am His friend.

The more I get to know Him, the more I want to be like Him!

He is my all – Do you know Him? Would you like to get to know Him? Just call out to Him in faith – he Hears you!
