Jesus is the mensch!
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
The three solas we have learned about so far have all focused on drawing power away from human authority and effort and instead putting God at the center of our understanding of spiritual salvation and growth. Today’s is no different!
Solus Christus is the idea that Jesus is at the center of everything: our lives, history, spirituality, the world… He alone is our king, our lord, and our savior.
It might seem weird to think that there was a point in Christianity where this wasn’t the case, where other people and institutions had supreme spiritual authority over Christian’s lives.
Yet, if we look closely at the way we live and think most of the time, it’s probably true of us as well.
We get worried about what our coworkers want us to do. We think our family is judging us and we change our actions. We want to look put together in front of our friends. So often, we are distracted by the desires and opinions of other people and neglect to remember the central figure of our lives, Jesus.
Let’s remind ourselves of the supremacy of Jesus today, friends. Let’s draw our worth and motivation from him.
