Who is Jesus

One of the greatest statements ever made about the person of Jesus was made by the great preacher S. M. Lockridge (born Shadrach Meshach Lockridge, March 7, 1913 – April 4, 2000).

Dr. Lockridge says of Jesus:

He’s the sinner’s savior

He’s the centerpiece of civilization

He stands alone in Himself

He’s Unique

He’s unparalleled

He’s unprecedented

He’s supreme

He’s preeminent

He’s the loftiest idea in literature

The highest concept in philosophy

The fundamental truth in theology

And the cardinal necessity of religion

He’s the miracle of the age

He supplies strength for the weak

He’s available for the tempted and the tried

He sympathizes and he saves

He guards and he guides

He heals the sick

He cleans the lepers

He forgives sinners

He discharges debtors

He delivers captives

He defends the feeble

He blesses the young

He serves the unfortunate

He regards the aged

He rewards the diligent

He beautifies the meek

Do you know him?

He’s the king of knowledge

The well-spring of wisdom

The doorway of deliverance

The pathway of peace

He’s the roadway of righteousness

The highway of holiness

The gateway of glory

The master of the mighty

The captain of the conquerors

The head of the heroes

The leader of the legislators

The overseer of the overcomers

He’s the governor of  governors

He’s the prince of princes

He’s the King of kings and the Lord of lords

Do you know him?

His life is matchless

His goodness is limitless

His mercy is everlasting

His love never changes

His word is enough

His grace is sufficient

His reign is righteous

His yoke is easy and his burden is light

I’m trying to describe him to you

But the problem is

He’s indescribable

He’s irresistible

He’s incomprehensible

He’s invincible

The Pharisees hated him

The Jews rejected him

Pilate condemned him

The Romans crucified him

Our sins killed him

The rich man buried him

But the grave could not hold him

And death could not handle him

And he rose triumphant on the third day

And he ascended into Heaven

And he sits enthroned at the right hand of the Father

He is the Lord of Heaven

The Lord of the Church

The Lord of our lives

He is our High Priest in Heaven

He is our coming King

That’s who Jesus is

Do you know him?
