A song by Steven Curtis Chapman that expresses how I feel.
If I could only fly

But I have prayed
And at your feet my whole life has been laid

In this day and age, people are still splitting theological hairs over the question "Who is Jesus?"
Some say Jesus was a great this or that. "He was a great teacher." "He was a great prophet". "He was the greatest moral person who ever lived."

Jesus is the Husband to the bride
He is the Friend to the friendless
He is the Physician to the sick
