The Outpouring continues with this question in mind: Who is Jesus? I’ve listed a few scriptures above regarding that question and I believe the Holy Ghost wants us to answer that question with a fresh assessment of His revelation in the Word and our relationship with Him – Jesus. If we look, in light of the revelation of Jesus (all He is and all He represents), we see that there is no reason to worry, fear, doubt, question, or live impatiently because He is with us. Jesus is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. What He was then, He is now, and
always will be. That’s security. What we need to focus on is how we are responding to the revelation of Jesus in our lives. Is that revelation still growing or has it reached its peak and started to dwindle? To be honest, the longer I serve Him the more I love Him and the more I love Him the more I want of Him. My life is His to do whatever pleases Him. It’s been that way since I came to the saving knowledge of Jesus. While I was a backslider (living off of my mother’s salvation), I told the Lord, “when I come, I’m coming all the way.” I’m so glad I did and I’m so glad to have a wife who understands that and has the same mindset for herself.
If your relationship with Jesus is starting to dwindle, wane, or even wax cold, you need a fresh revelation of Jesus. Your relationship with Jesus reflects His power and influence on you and you should never be ashamed or afraid of what others may think or say. When it’s all said and done, you’ll be in the glory, they’ll be put to shame. Jesus said it like this, “Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38 KJV
