There’s nobody like Jesus.

He can take a situation where you feel pressed and distressed and turn it around with a flinch of his finger. When you are torn up inside and the pain seems more than you can bear he takes his nail scarred hand, puts it gently on your shoulder and whispers through his Word, “I understand. I hurt with you. I’m there for you. Through my strength you can endure this, you can endure anything.”

There’s nobody like Jesus.

He is defending you before the Father right now against the accusations of the Evil One. His Spirit is interpreting your prayer requests to God with deep groans that only the Heavenly Father can understand. But in his groans we find our sighs of relief.

There’s nobody like Jesus.

Through his death our sins are forgiven, through his resurrection our hope is alive, through his life in us and through us we have victory over sin and Satan.

There’s nobody like Jesus.

When he died on the cross the ground shook, the graves opened and the world changed. The creation that once was all on a highway to hell was now on the pathway to redemption.

There’s nobody like Jesus.

At the moment our Savior paid the price for sin, the veil in the temple was torn from top to bottom. That thick veil which was handknit for thousands of man hours to keep a barrier between sinful humanity and holy divinity, was shredded in an instant by the hands of the divine. With that rip our relationship with God could finally and forever be repaired. The sounds of tearing were not just the fabric in the temple being torn but the body of Jesus on a hill being shredded. The Holy of Holies, reserved exclusively for the presence of God, was now accessible to frail humanity. What was once blocked by a wall of thread and dread was now opened up for all to enter through faith. The Son of God offered himself for our sins so that we could revel in the presence of God, not in the temple built by human hands, but in the true temple in Heaven itself.

There’s nobody like Jesus.

The last words of Jesus in the second to the last verse of the Bible are, “I am coming soon.” And he is. The first time he came as a lamb to be sacrificed. The next time he comes as a lion to conquer. Then, at the culmination of all history, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. Every demon that ever uttered blasphemies will bow. Every atheist who railed against the existence of the One who created them will bow. Every sinner, every saint, every person from every religion, every angel and demon that ever existed, including Satan himself will bow and admit…

There’s nobody like Jesus.
