What does Jesus mean to me?

The following is copied from the Jan-Jun 2010 issue of READY - the magazine of SASRA (the Soldiers' and Airmen's Scripture Readers Association).  It seemed an appropriate offering on this Lord's Day - especially after my most recent posts!

"What does Jesus mean to me?
Jesus?
My Jesus?
Boring?
Irrelevant?
Just another figure from history?
Or, even, an imaginary figure who has never existed?
Jesus?
Not my Jesus.

My Jesus is the reason I can no longer sing the hymn 'Amazing Grace' without tears tumbling down my cheeks.
My Jesus is the One Who, last year, carried me on His back.
When I was stretched, almost to breaking point, He held me in the palm of His hand.
Jesus?
Boring?
Irrelevant?
Not my Jesus.

My Jesus is alive today - as He was yesterday, as He will be tomorrow.
My Jesus is the central character in the greatest story ever told - and it's not finished yet!
My Jesus is all-knowing, and all-seeing.
My Jesus is perfect, yet forgiving - so forgiving that He loves 'a wretch like me'.  So forgiving.

And that's just as well, as I need an immense amount of forgiveness.
My Jesus is my 'strength and shield'.  Alone I am so weak; with Him, I am invincible.
For the victory has already been won.  My Strength; my Shield; my Saviour
From Him, there is no condemnation - not even of me!
From Him, there is only love.

My Jesus.  My Saviour.
Lord of lords, and King of kings.
Creator of the universe.
Powerful in His majesty.
Yet He wants to know - me!
How wonderful.
My Jesus."                                          (Mark Bunting; 14th June, 2009)

On this Sunday evening, may my Jesus be your Jesus too!
