Today’s Daily Devotional
But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.”
Who was this Child, the one we call Jesus? There’s one right answer; there are many wrong answers. Some say He was a great man. Beyond any doubt, He was, but Jesus is more than Jesus the Great. He is Jesus, the One and Only.
The late Dr. W. A. Criswell said: “To compare the greatest men on earth like Alexander, Caesar, or Shakespeare with Jesus is like comparing a grain of dust to the whole universe, a molehill to Mount Everest.”
Others speak of Him as a moral teacher, but as C.S. Lewis said, “A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher; he would be either a lunatic, on the level of a man who says he’s a poached egg, or else he would be the devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was and is the Son of God or else a mad man or something worse.”
C. S. Lewis went on to say, “You can show Him up for a fool. You can spit at Him. You can kill Him as a demon. Or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let none of us come away with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He’s not left that open to us.” Who is Jesus to you? Is He Lord or not? You need to find out. And if He is not Lord, you must fall at His feet and make Him Lord.
