Who do we say Jesus Christ is?
He is the Christ of God, the Lord, our saviour. He is with us in our daily lives.
He may be present in our happiness, in our sadness, in our sufferings, and in our troubles.
He really shepherds us to salvation, to the eternal happiness.
We will experience his presence if we renounce ourselves and take up our cross every day and follow him. We are not alone in this life. Jesus Christ is with us.
He is the saviour.
