What Do You Think About Jesus?
We all spend a lot of our time thinking about different things. But when we ask the question “What do you think about Jesus?”, it is about the same as asking, “What do you believe about Jesus?” What we think is usually what we believe, and if we believe in Jesus with all of our hearts, then we are a Christian.
But someone might say, I don’t think about Jesus at all! Well then, this is a good time for you to start thinking about Jesus! Thinking about Jesus just might lead to your salvation!
1. First of all, what do you think about the first advent of Christ? (Matt. 9:1-6)
1) Do you think He is God?
Is Jesus just an ordinary man to you this morning? Or do you think that He is God?
2) Do you think Jesus can forgive sins?
If so, are you forgiven? You can be!
3) What do you think about Jesus being a friend of sinners? (Matt. 9:9-13)
Are you offended because Jesus went to sinners homes and ate with them? Or, do you see yourself as a sinner, and would like for Jesus to come to your home? Would you like Jesus to be your friend? He can be!
4) Who’s Son do you think Jesus is? (Matt. 22:41-46)
Who’s Son do you think Jesus is? (Read Proverbs 30:4). Do you think He is the Son of David? He is! Do you think He is the eternal Son of God? Yes, He is also the Son of God! If you want to be saved, you must believe He is the Son of God!
5) What do you think about the verdict of the Sanhedrin? (Matt. 26:66-46)
Do you think Jesus a blasphemer and a deceiver? In other words, was He only pretending to be the Son of God? Do you think He was deserving of death? Or do you think that Jesus truly is the innocent, sinless Son of God?
6) What do you think about Jesus death? (Matt. 27:35-37; 45-46; 50-51; 54)
Do you think Jesus is the King of the Jews like the sign placed over His cross said? Do you think that Jesus is your Lord and King this morning? Do you think that God forsook Jesus on the cross? If so, why do you think He forsook Him?
7) What do you think about His resurrection? (Matt. 28:1-6)
Do you think that Jesus rose again, after being dead for 3 days in the grave? Or do you think that Jesus is still in the grave?
Secular historians agree that Jesus was a real person. They believe that He lived on the earth, and died on the cross. But they don’t think He rose from the dead. How about you? You must believe that Jesus rose again from the dead if you want to be saved!
8) What do you think about His ascension back to Heaven? (Luke 24:50-53)
Do you think that Jesus went back to heaven like the Bible said? Where do you think Jesus is this morning? Do you think that He is just wandering around on the earth somewhere? Or do you think that He ascended back into heaven to be with His Heavenly Father? Do you believe He is up there now praying and interceding for His people? Well, that is exactly what He is doing right now!
2. Secondly and finally, what do you think about Jesus’ second coming? (Matt. 24:35-44).
1) Do you think that today the world is like it was in the days of Noah?
Can you see how wicked this world is getting? Isn’t there only evil continually today, like in Noah’s day? Aren’t people today indifferent to the wickedness of our nation and world? The general population of humanity just doesn’t seem to care, do they? There only seem to be a very few people who are crying out against sin.
2) Do you think that this could be the very generation that Jesus will return?
There is nothing more that must be fulfilled that we know of. People in our day are certainly like the people in Noah’s day. I think that Jesus just might come back at any moment! Do you?
3) Do you think you are ready to meet Jesus when He comes again?
If you were standing next to a lost sinner person, would you go and he be left behind? Would you be taken up to Heaven to meet Jesus in the air? Or, would you be left behind to suffer the great wrath of God? Beloved, this is really going to happen one day, and I believe it will be soon! This is not a fairy tale, but Jesus is going to come back again like He said! The question is, are you ready to meet Him?
In conclusion, what think ye of Christ this morning?
Do you think Jesus is God, and that He can forgive your sins? Do you think that Jesus is the Son of God from heaven? Do you think that Jesus is the innocent, sinless Son of God? Do you think that Jesus is the King, and Lord of all? Do you think that He died on that cross for your sins? Do you think that God forsook Jesus on the cross for your sins? Do you think that Jesus was buried and rose again from the dead the third day? Do you think that Jesus went back to heaven to be with His heavenly Father? Do you think that Jesus is coming back again for you?
If you really and truly think that these things are true about Jesus, then you are saved. If you believe that Jesus is your Lord and Saviour, do you think you should confess Him? Do you think that you should follow Him in Baptism and service in His Church?
Yes, beloved, what think ye of Christ this morning?
