A friend and fellow writer put out the challenge to fill in the blank in a Tweet following the words, “Jesus is______.” I replied with my short answer and here is my long list in progress. Jesus offers us a grand invitation to know Him more, to ponder all He is, and to seek to experience Him in all the ways He offers Himself to us.

In the day to day and in turbulent times, it helps to remember who God is and that He is in control. We can find calm amid chaos, comfort during a crisis, and peace in a panicked world because:
