Show Me Your Jesus

“Show me your Jesus and I’ll show you what you believe.”

What Jesus do you think dominates the beliefs and thoughts of our church members?

Here are some I came up with, and I’ll let you to figure out what they may imply:
The Gramps/Santa Jesus
The Scary/Over-Bearing/I-am-keeping-my-eye-on-you Jesus
The Revolutionist
The Passive/Weak Jesus
The Warrior/Militant Jesus
The Judgmental Jesus
The Jesus that lives on another planet
The Lover – of certain things Jesus

  1. My Jesus is my constant companion. I know Jesus is always with me, and I can call on Him for guidance. Jesus is very accepting of me, and I find I’m harsher on myself than He is. When I mess up, I carry the burden and “beat myself up” for a long time. But then I hear the words (well, not “hear” but am aware that it’s OK, start over, try again, apologize (if an apology is called for), and learn from this mistake. As with companions, we don’t have a dialog going constantly; we move through life together without my having to worry about being judged and then punished. I know I’m fogiven, even before I’ve sinned; yet I know it’s good for me to confess my sin when I’m made aware of it.
    When I see something that I know comes from our Lord, I say a quick prayer of thanks. I’m especially grateful when the troubles of the world are brought “in my face” and I remember that Jesus told us to “fear not.” I’ve been called naive because I don’t have a lot of fear. I’m not reckless, going near dark alleys at night, for example; but I am confident that I will be protected from evil. I also pray that I can be vigilant and recognize evil, whether it be in thoughts that creep in, or something from the outside world.
    There’s so much more to say, but I must close. Thanks for the chance to share with you my Jesus.

  2. He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

    He made payment for sin on our behalf, dying for us while we were yet sinners.

    For faith in Him we are credited with righteousness, being the spiritual offspring of Abraham.

    He will never leave us nor forsake us.

    He is our high priest, the one who continually makes interssion to Father on our behalf.

    I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, neither anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

    And, He’s coming back to get us and take us to the Father’s house –

    “According to the Lord’s own word , we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. and so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.

    Be like the owner of the house who, if he had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.

    Be excited and anticipate His coming!
