These are only five names or titles assigned to Jesus Christ, listed in just one verse of the bible. Throughout the entire bible, we find many others names by which we can refer to Jesus. Among these are Lamb of God, Bread of Life, Light of the world, and High Priest.
In today’s society, we could give Him another position. Jesus is much like a Lifeguard. Is He not elevated above the masses? Jesus is on the throne of righteousness, exalted far above all names and authorities.
Is He not watching over all of humanity, seeking to save those who are drowning in sin? Did He not dive into the sea of iniquity to rescue us? Did He not blow His own breath into our souls and massaged our hearts with His love? Is this not like a lifeguard? Yet He specializes in saving us beyond our physical existence, offering us eternal life for our spirit.
Yes, Jesus is a Lifeguard. Albeit unlike other lifeguards, He went beyond all boundaries to save us. If it meant giving up His life, He would do it. If He had to walk upon the water and calm the roughest of seas, it was no problem.
And He has perfect aim when tossing us a lifeline. But look closely at that lifeline. The ring that is tethered to the end of it is in the form of a cross. Grab hold, hang on tight, and let Him pull you ashore.
Jesus is a Lifeguard, and He is on duty!
