Scripture: Luke 7:18-35
All of history revolves around Jesus. Our calendars are dated B.C. – Before Christ, and A.D. – In the year of our Lord. Before Christ was an age of preparation and after Christ was an age of fulfillment, God’s kingly reign began. Christ’s death on the cross dealt a fatal blow to humanities greatest enemy, death, sin, and the devil. The world needed/needs a savior/messiah more than anything else.
When John the Baptist wanted assurance that Jesus was the Messiah, Jesus said tell John what you have seen and heard (Luke 7:22). By observation, you can tell if Christ is the real thing. Can people look at our life and tell if we’re a Christian? Is it obvious?
