You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.
Luke 1:31-33 NIV
Who is Jesus? This might be a question you have asked or maybe it is one that you think you know the answer to. In the gospel according to Luke, we begin to get a glimpse at who Jesus was and what God's original plan was all along. The first description we get from the angel Gabriel is "Son of the Most High God". Can you imagine being the Son of God? I feel like those are some pretty large shoes to fill. Luckily, Jesus filled them perfectly, since He is also God. We know this as the Christmas story where the birth of Jesus is laid out. Mary talks to the angel who tells her she is pregnant, even though she is a virgin. Joseph plans on divorcing her but an angel convinces him to stay with Mary. They travel to Bethlehem where Jesus is born in a stable and laid in a manger. Shepherds and wise men come to see the Messiah that had been prophesied about long ago. However, this is only the beginning of the story of Jesus and why He came to this earth. He came to save the whole world and establish His kingdom here on the Earth forever. The cool thing is that you get to be a part of that kingdom if you want to. Over the next few weeks, we will discover that Jesus came, taught, healed, died, and then rose again. He died for your sins and has paid the price in full. All you must do is believe in Him, and trust that He is your Savior.
If you aren't entirely sure about what has been laid before you today, I would encourage you to check back next week. We will be adding to the story each week leading up to Easter. If you want to make sure you see the next part, follow us on Facebook and Instagram. For the finale, join us for our Easter service on April 18th, at Evans Elementary School (1675 Winnebago Rd, Colorado Springs, CO 80915). If you can't wait any longer to find out the rest of the story, read the book of John, found in the New Testament of the Bible.
