Who Is Jesus?

A couple of months ago, the senior class at South Lancaster Academy, had a 7 minute video assignment where they had to ask 30 complete strangers, “who is Jesus”? The SLA Pioneer recently sat down with a few of the seniors to see how their videos and the experience was and who Jesus is to them personally.

Senior, Rosalba Valera, answered when asked the question what she got out of the assignment, ” It made new friends. What really hit me was realizing through someone else that you do not have to have a religion to know and have Jesus in your life. ” Rosalba was also asked who Jesus is to her, and she replied saying, “To me Jesus is the reason I’m alive, I know that sounds cliché, but without Him there would be no me.”

Senior, Adam Gagnon, in response to the same questions said, ” Jesus is the one who saved me, offered me eternal life, and provides everything I need and more. On top of being my shelter, provider, and savior, he is also my friend. From the experience I was genuinely shocked as to how many people know God. Although a lot of people know God, it doesn’t make any sense to me why so many people do not just accept all that he has done for us.”

A lot of people know who Jesus is, but a lot of people also do not realize what Jesus does for us and who He could be in their lives. Those who realize who Jesus really is, why don’t we share who He is with everyone else? We are almost out of time, and so many people do not know who Jesus is. All that we have to do is come unto Him and accept Him. In Romans 10:9-10 it tells us, “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe you are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess you are saved.” Before you can tell others who Jesus is, we have to find out who Jesus is our own lives.

So who Jesus is in your life? Why do you choose to want Him to be in it? Leave us a comment below and let us know.
