There's a Title for That
by John UpChurch

“He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.” - Colossians 1:17-18

Sometimes, we just need to be reminded of who Jesus is:

The Word: He pitched His tent with us and put flesh on God’s promises (John 1)

Son of David: He loved His people, even if they didn’t recognize Him (Matthew 1:1; John 1)

Teacher: He tells us exactly what we need, even if it’s not what we want to hear (John 3:2)

Prophet: He told us what would and will happen (Deuteronomy 18:15; Matthew 13:57)

Provider: He can make a little go a long way (Mark 6:30-44)

Mediator: He’s right in the middle of our struggles and pleading our case (1 Timothy 2:5Hebrews 9:15)

Suffering Servant: He got busted up for us (Isaiah 53)

Immanuel: He never gets tired of being with us (Isaiah 7:14)

King of Kings: He’s got the power (Revelation 17:14)

The Way: He ain’t got no time for wishy-washy “all roads” arguments; He’s it (John 14:6)

The Truth: He puts the lie in our “true for you” follies (John 14:6)

The Life: He resuscitates hearts that were hardened by sin (John 14:6, 20:31)

Good Shepherd: He patiently and lovingly tracks down His runaways (Luke 15:4; John 10:11)

True Vine: He nurtures us to fruitfulness (John 15:4-5; Romans 7:4)

Friend of Sinners: He offers grace to those stumbling around in darkness (Matthew 11:9)

Balm of Gilead: He binds up our wounds by the scars on His back (Jeremiah 8:22; Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24)

Giver of the Spirit: He sent the One who makes the journey alongside us and leads us into truth (John 14)

Light of the World: He sends photons to those who’ve been blinded by the god of this age (Luke 2:32; Acts 13:47; 2 Corinthians 4:4)

Intercessor: He never stops praying for us (Isaiah 53:12; John 17)

Great High Priest: He took care of all the Temple work (Hebrews 7)

The Bread/Water of Life: He’s our daily nutritional requirement for a spiritually balanced life (John 6; Revelation 21:6)

Alpha and Omega: He gets the first and last word… always (Revelation 22:13)

Lord of Glory: He makes angels belt out never-ending praises (Psalm 24, 103:20; James 2:1)

Firstborn among the Dead: He paved the path that leads to His place (Colossians 1:18)

Intersecting Faith and Life: Jesus has so many titles because He fulfills all our needs. Wherever you are in life, whatever you need, He’s got it covered. As my father-in-law sometimes says, “Jesus picked up His cross and said, ‘Hang on to Me. We’re going through.’”

With Him, you will make it out alive.
