How should we view Jesus?

When you read Scripture, especially the Gospels, you see a Jesus who can relate with us (personal) and at the same time do extraordinary miracles (powerful). One minute He is crying over the loss of a friend and the next minute raising that friend from the dead (John 11).

So which view should we have: the personal or the powerful?

The truth is we need to have both views of Jesus because Paul says, “being found in human form (personal), he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name so that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow (powerful) . . .” (Phil. 2:6-10)
