The question is loaded with different answers and evokes many different opinions and thoughts. But who does the Bible say Jesus is? To kick off "The Glory of Jesus" series, it was only right that we familiarize or remind ourselves who Jesus Christ is, what He has done for our lives, and understand why He had to come and die in the first place.
John 1: 1-18 (NLT)
Being a Christian does not mean our lives become full of rainbows and unicorns from the point we accept Jesus into our lives on. Accepting Christ does not mean the Devil can no longer tempt you. If anything, we become a bigger target for the enemy because we become children of God. Great things are going to happen in our lives, but bad inevitable. The one thing that does separates us from the rest of the world is that we have Jesus to walk with us through the good and the bad. The highs and the lows.
Luke 7: 1-17 (NLT)
The Bible gives us great examples of the way Jesus did life, and did ministry on Earth. These examples are worthy of the utmost praise, but that's not all they're there for. They were given to us so that we could have a model to follow. Often times, the church gets a bad reputation because of the people. Jesus calls us to love people, even sinners. The time where the Pharisees brought Jesus a woman in adultery is a perfect example of how we should treat sinners. He forgave this woman, but also told her to correct her ways of sin, and to sin no more. Jesus was without sin, but in reality none of us are Jesus, none of us are perfect. Jesus calls us to forgive and to correct, the enemy calls for condemnation.
John 8: 1-11 (NLT)
Jesus is our ultimate healer. We see examples all through the Bible of Jesus' healing. We look at two times in which he heals two different people, but both on the Sabbath! This caused a lot of controversy amongst the Pharisees and teachers of religious law. Throughout these passages Jesus' heart is definitely shown and it is obvious that Jesus definitely does not have a heart for hypocrites.
