What Would It Take with Jesus?

What great thing about Jesus should you start with in order to capture people’s attention, because He doesn’t seem enough alone to get consideration from those He created? You want to start with how good He is, because that would seem to be a draw. If they understand His goodness to them, perhaps that would move them beyond a condition of indifference. Paul did write that the goodness of God leads people to repentance. Or should you start with Jesus as Creator? If people would recognize that He created them, they would understand that they wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for Him. Maybe if they knew Jesus died for them, that would get some focus and time for Him. Or what about His wrath and judgment? He’s going to judge them by His Words in the end. His wrath will kindle against His enemies, which includes all those who reject Him as Lord and Savior. Perhaps if they gave some prolonged thought to His resurrection from the dead? He did defeat death, not only Himself personally, but the deaths of at least two other people, including Lazarus after a few days in the tomb. Since death is so horrible in so many ways, if people knew that He possessed the escape from the punishment for sin, they would pause to admire Him. What about you? What is keeping you from the devotion to Jesus He deserves? You too busy? Too distracted? Hope not.
