What Is Jesus To Us

60 reasons why Jesus Christ is everything to me

  1. He is the source of my tranquility. Outside of that, there can be disturbance and turmoil wherever, as far as I’m concerned
  2. He is my delight. He is my pleasure. I don’t require any other source of happiness since He is the atonement for all of my sins. He has thrown all of my sins into the sea of forgetfulness, where they will remain forever. In the event that I should offend again, He will forgive me since my sin has also been atoned for
  3. He is my justifier and reconciler. He will purify me again and over again for as long as I live. I am being transformed by the work of his death, which is creating more space for the life of Christ in me. He is my Shepherd, according to 2 Corinthians 4:12. His faithfulness day and night, even when no one else cares for me, is my song of praise
  4. He is the only one who deserves it. If there is no other subject or reason for singing praises, He is the only one I can think of
  5. He is my capital. I don’t require any further funds. If that isn’t enough, then nothing will be enough
  6. He is my source of livelihood. He is my insurance policy in the event that everything else fails. It’s reasonable to say that nothing is safe when He is your future. I fix my gaze on Him. I’m on my way to meet with Him. Then I have a promising and lengthy future ahead of me. Hallelujah
  7. He is the only Lord and ruler I have. I have declared Him to be my Lord and Savior in my heart. (15:15) (1 Peter 3:15) In complete confidence in the flawless goodness of His direction and commandments, I have surrendered myself to Him
  8. He has become my father and mother. He is my mother, sister, and brother
  9. He is the personification of my honor. I have absolutely no desire to get any other accolade or recognition. Even if others disgrace and loathe me for the rest of my life, it will make no difference to Him since He is my stronghold and shield, as well as my protector. He is my Master, and I am secure with him. I’m just starting off as an apprentice. It doesn’t matter if no one else is actively instructing me in the truth
  10. He is
  11. He is my guide. It wouldn’t matter if all the others were merely talkers who had not themselves traveled the route, so I could rely on them to guide me, He would still be well familiar with it. He is my captain, and all honor and glory be to His name. Even if no one else empowers me or instructs me on how to fight battle, He is a great warrior and the leader of God’s army, and I can rely on Him. He is no wimp
  12. He is the myrest of myrests. I could still find a wonderful place of rest in Him, despite the fact that my physical body had neither bed nor pillow. He is my storehouse, after all. It doesn’t matter if I don’t have any supplies
  13. In Him, however, resides the entire Godhead bodily, and I am a member of His body, being filled by Him
  14. He is my physician. His ability to cure my body surpasses that of any earthly physician
  15. And he does it only when it is in my best interests
  16. He is my goal – to become like Him and to share in his essence – and He is my precursor. I am not embarking on a perilous expedition in the role of explorer. It is a path that has been cleared, and it is this path that Jesus has chosen to follow. Every step has already been taken by Him in the past. He has been put through his paces in every aspect, just like I am putting myself through right now and will continue to do so. What a source of comfort it is
  17. He is my source of comfort. Because he is my Judge, this level of comfort is adequate for me. It doesn’t matter what other people think of me because he is my preferred meal. He is the source of all nourishment. In addition to being my amusement and pleasure, Hisfleshis actually nourishment for me. All other forms of enjoyment pale in contrast to him
  18. He is my good fortune and source of riches. What He brings my way is always lucky and beneficial to my financial well-being. No one has ever had a greater run of luck and riches than I have

  25. He is my defender, advocate, and lawyer

  32. He is the source of life into which I have been grafted as a branch
  33. He is the chief architect who is edifying me with the others as a dwelling place of God in the Spirit
  34. He is a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense, of which I have become a partaker through the cross – an offense to all those who seek to defend their own positions. I have the ability to achieve everything in Him – anything that He has appointed for me
  35. He is the source of God’s strength. It is amazing that He was able to do everything that He accomplished while still being made of flesh and blood like us
  36. He is God’s wisdom. It is a wonderful experience to get insight into what took place in Christ Jesus
  37. He is the Mysterious One of God. Does it come as a surprise that people do not grasp His person
  38. He is my time
  39. He makes it complete. It never gets old or monotonous. Time is no longer wasted since He is my Sabbath. As an alternative to going my own way and “going about my own business,” I choose to put my trust in Him, in His will and work. Due to the fact that I do this every day of the week throughout the year, I regard (as written) all days to be the same. Sabbath rest on a continuous basis! God is to be thanked since He is the Giver of all good things. His presence removes the need for me to keep an eye out for other donors
  40. He is my sanctuary. I can avoid having to rush to broken cisterns when I’m in desperate need since He is the source of my life’s water. “You are the source of all my springs.” According to Psalm 87:7, He is the perfect pattern in all things
  41. He is immutable and without a shadow of a turning. He remains the same, despite the fact that everyone else is as unpredictable as the moon
  42. He is everything to me. That is precisely why everything else is a complete waste of time. It has no significance for me and makes me feel indifferent. Amen

In November 1929, BCC’s quarterly “Skjulte Skatter” (“Hidden Treasures”) published a modified version of an essay with the title “What Jesus Christ means to me,” which was first published in Norwegian. Stiftelsen Skjulte Skatters Forlag owns the copyright to this work.

What did Jesus actually do for us? — DesireJesus.com

Imagine going to a church worship service and never hearing the gospel message taught or proclaimed. That is what it would be like. Unfortunately, there have been numerous instances in the past where this has been an issue, and it continues to be a source of concern in some situations today. We have a tendency to lose sight of who Jesus is and what He has chosen to accomplish on our behalf. Reading the Scriptures can provide us with the opportunity to gain new insight into a subject matter. The benefit of being reminded of something we already know but haven’t necessarily thought about in a long time comes in other situations.

  1. Christians will learn something new as they consider the book’s content, while others will be reminded of things they haven’t thought about in a long time.
  2. What kind of future would we be looking forward to right now if He hadn’t stepped in to help us out?
  3. We’ve become so accustomed to the advantages He provides that we don’t stop to consider the kind of mess we’d be in if He didn’t exist.
  4. It is important to recognize that the work He has done on our behalf is far more significant and far more effective than we often realize.

1. Jesus experienced death and resurrection in order to defeat sin’s power in our lives

Because Christ likewise suffered once for sins, the righteous for the wicked, so he may bring us to God, he died in the flesh but was raised to life again through faith in the Spirit,”— 1 Peter 3:18, ESVS Throughout my life, I have sprained my right ankle on a number of occasions. Two of the sprains were considered serious. I couldn’t even walk properly. My leg was swelled almost all the way up to my knee and had changed colors many times. When the injuries were new, it seemed as though the anguish and suffering would last forever, but it did, gradually, eventually end.

  • During Christ’s earthly career, His body was subjected to cruel treatment.
  • However, His suffering was only for a short period of time.
  • I see depictions of Him suffering on a daily basis, and I realize that some theological traditions maintained by some Christian denominations approach communion as if it were a reenactment of Jesus’ crucifixion, but this is not the truth.
  • He is not trapped in a situation of constant agony and pain.
  • Before humans sinned against God, we were told that if we did not maintain a close relationship with the Lord, we would perish in the process.
  • Every single one of us was guilty, and none of us could rectify the situation since we were all guilty of the same offense.
  • In order for us to be saved, Jesus took on flesh and became a man, suffering the punishment we deserved.
  • The righteous died in the place of the guilty in order to appease God’s anger against our sin and subsequently to bless us with the gift of His righteousness, which we lacked at the time of our transgression.

Those who put their faith in Jesus can now look forward to experiencing resurrection, since the Holy Spirit indwells everyone who believes. As a result, we no longer have to be controlled by sin, Satan, or the dread of death. In our lives, Christ has conquered their power because of his sacrifice.

2. Jesus proclaimed His victory over those who were defeating us

“when he went and declared to the spirits in prison, since they had previously refused to obey, while God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being made, in which a few, namely, eight humans, were taken safely over water.” ” — 1 Peter 3:19-20, English Standard Version There is a great deal of disagreement over what is intended by these passages. Some of the issues raised by this chapter are constantly argued by theologians, and I don’t expect that we will be able to resolve all of the issues raised by these lines today in our discussion.

  • The verse paints a picture in my mind’s eye of Jesus announcing His triumph over those who took pleasure in defeating His people.
  • According to legend, there are such entities as angels and demonic beings.
  • They are a distinct and independently formed order of entities.
  • It is recorded in the Bible that this world was populated with people who were in a state of constant rebellion against God in the days before the great flood.
  • And they were free to choose whom they wanted to be their spouses.
  • These were the powerful heroes of yore, the men of fame, the men of legend.
  • — Genesis 6:1–5, English Standard Version We’re also given the sense that fallen angels may have had children with human women, which would have contributed to the depravity that existed on the planet, much to God’s chagrin at the time.

As a result, if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and imprisoned them in chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; if God did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; — 2 Peter 2:4-5, English Standard Version During this historical period, the Lord instructed Noah to construct an ark.

  1. The ark was enormous.
  2. People would almost probably have seen it and inquired about it during that time period.
  3. The fact that they could have chosen to repent of their disbelief toward God every time they looked at it and considered what it meant is a testament to their character.
  4. When the floodwaters rolled in, just eight individuals were able to get inside the ark.
  5. As part of his campaign against mankind, Satan pushes us to insult the God who created us and gave us life.
  6. According to certain interpretations, 1 Peter 3:19 is informing us that, shortly after Christ’s resurrection and ascension, He proclaimed to the fallen angels who had been fighting against mankind throughout human history that they had been victorious over humanity.

Jesus has stated that their attempts to undermine mankind and God’s goals for His most valuable creation have failed, and that they will not succeed in their endeavors.

3. Jesus has allowed us to identify with Him

“Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a cleansing of filth from the body, but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, ” says the Apostle Paul. ” — 1 Peter 3:21, according to the ESVM The other night, my family and I were watching a classic sitcom together. One of the major characters was about to begin high school in the story. In the hopes of making good friends with the coolest person in school on his first day, he planned to spend the rest of the day getting to know him and learning more about him.

  1. We are fortunate in that this is not the case.
  2. It is through Baptism that we become associated with Him in our own situation.
  3. When we put our faith in Jesus, we are taught that we are baptized with the Holy Spirit, joined with Christ, and united with one another.
  4. And we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether we were in slavery or freedom, for we were all baptized into one Spirit.
  5. While some individuals believe that water baptism has the ability to save a lost soul, such thinking is incorrect.
  6. Even Peter himself admits that the baptism that saves is not the washing away of filth from the person’s body.
  7. Water baptism is a tangible sign of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which took place the moment we accepted Christ as our Savior.
  8. He has bestowed upon us the gift of His righteousness, and He is not ashamed to refer to us as His brothers and sisters in Christ.
  9. We may confidently approach God the Father, knowing that when He looks at us, He will see the righteousness of Christ present in our hearts and minds.

4. Jesus rules and reigns with perfect judgement

Angels, authorities, and powers have been subordinated to him, as he has ascended into heaven and is sitting at the right hand of God. — 1 Peter 3:22 (KJV) ESVI was recently made aware of a news item claiming that an increasing number of individuals were having difficulty getting a decent night’s sleep. On being asked why, many of those who responded stated that they were kept up at night by their dread of international leaders making wrong or potentially hazardous judgments. They called into question the judgment of those who had been entrusted with the authority to lead nations and make governmental policy in their own countries.

  • Despite the fact that human leaders regularly fail us, our ultimate hope should never be placed in the hands of those we elect to public office.
  • According to this passage of Scripture, Jesus is seated at the right side of God the Father.
  • However, there is a day coming when Heaven and Earth will be joined, and Christ will rule with fairness, kindness, and perfect justice, as evidenced by his visible rule.
  • When I looked up, I saw a new heaven and a new earth, since the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no longer there.
  • It was a sight to behold.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, nor will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, nor will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” — Revelation 21:1-4, Revelation 22:1-2, Revelation 23:1-2, ESVI s When you think about all that Jesus has done for us and all that He still has planned for us, it’s quite astounding.

He suffered for us, conquered sin’s power over us, announced His triumph to those who were determined to defeat us, permits us to identify with Him via baptism, and He governs and reigns with perfect justice and kindness on the earth.

When we become too preoccupied with ourselves or our day-to-day circumstances, it is easy to lose sight of these advantages. The tremendous grace of our Savior and Lord, on the other hand, is brought to our attention on a regular basis by the word of God. John Stange, et al., 2017

Who is Jesus to You? – The Episcopal Church

Some of your replies are listed here. Christ I see Christ in every individual I come into contact with. This leads me to believe that Jesus is not an abstract concept or demagogue, but that he is present in every individual I come into contact with. “Whatever you do to the least of my people, you do to me.” “Whatever you do to the least of my people, you do unto me.” – Travis, a parishioner in the state of Texas I have never experienced the presence and tranquility of Christ’s love as I have in the beauty of the liturgy, the Eucharist, and the wonderful prayers of the Church like I have in them.

  1. He redeems human suffering and inspires us to have compassion for one another.
  2. He soothes me in the most difficult of circumstances and does not despise me when I make a mistake.
  3. — Anonyme It is through love, Jesus informs the world that not only is it worthwhile to take risks, but it is also the only route out of our society of death and destruction.
  4. — Anonyme God’s only begotten son Sometimes he is the Son of God, sometimes he is a prophet to a world in ruins, and sometimes he is just someone I can confide in and speak about anything.
  5. What exactly that signifies is something I’m currently debating!
  6. He is significant to me because he is the focal point of a faith that has had a significant impact on my life and the way I live it.
  7. In addition, he offers instructions on how to go about it.

— Jason, a Maryland-based parishioner Jesus is the most significant person in my life, and our relationship is the most important relationship in my life.

Salvation Jesus has entrusted us with a mission: to bring about the redemption of the entire world.

Healing, loving, and giving voice to those who have no voice are examples of how we are to follow in Jesus’ footsteps.

Especially as someone who does not tolerate the existing quo and speaks up for the underprivileged and disenfranchised, he is a model for me of justice.

Denise from Louisiana sent in this message: Hope Jesus guides me to a stronger sense of hope.

Sometimes I feel defeated by the world — but Jesus’ example reminds me that he, too, was defeated by the world, and in the process, altered the world around him.

Father Christopher, a priest from Connecticut Forgiveness When it comes to forgiveness, my understanding of Jesus serves as an anchor and a guide for discovering, accepting, and offering forgiveness.

–Candace, a parishioner from Wyoming.

In my opinion, Jesus is not some phantom figure floating about in the sky.

Deacon and Chaplain, I strive to discover Jesus, that glimmer of goodness and humanity in every person I come into contact with on a daily basis. This message from Jesus, that he has room for everyone, is one that the world desperately needs to hear. Debbie, Deacon’s wife

Who is Jesus Christ?

QuestionAnswer In contrast to the question “Does God exist?,” The question of whether or not Jesus Christ existed is one that is asked by a small number of individuals. The majority of people believe that Jesus was in fact a man who lived in Israel 2,000 years ago. It is proposed that the conversation begin with a consideration of Jesus’ complete identity. Every major religion teaches that Jesus was a prophet, an excellent teacher, or a holy man, and almost all of them are correct. Yet according to the Bible, Jesus was far more than a prophet, a wonderful teacher, or an otherwise holy man in every way.

  1. S.
  2. It would be difficult to consider Jesus a great moral teacher if he were simply a man who spoke the kinds of things Jesus said.
  3. You are required to make a decision.
  4. You may call him an idiot and shut him up, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon, or you can fall at his feet and worship him as your Lord and God.
  5. We have not been given the opportunity to exercise that choice by him.
  6. 55–56) So, who did Jesus assert himself to be?
  7. First and foremost, He is God manifested in human form.

Take, for example, the reaction of the Jews to His words.

The Jews saw Jesus’ words as an assertion of his divinity.

Never once does he state, “I did not make any claims to being God.” In saying, “I and the Father are one,” Jesus was asserting true equality with the Father (John 10:30).

In claiming pre-existence, Jesus took on the name of God and applied it to Himself: I AM (see Exodus 3:14).

In addition to John 1:1, which states, “The Word was God,” and John 1:14, which states, “The Word became human,” there are other scriptural indications that Jesus is God manifested in the flesh.

The apostle Paul refers to Jesus as “our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ” in his letter to the Romans (Titus 2:13).

God the Father also offers evidence to Jesus’ identity: “But concerning the Son, he declares, ‘Your throne, O God, will endure forever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.’ ” It is written in Hebrews 1:8, and it is found in Psalm 45:6.

And he will be known by the titles “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” and “Mighty God” (emphasis added).

What difference does it make whether or not Jesus is God?

S.

If Jesus is not God, then the apostles were also deceivers, as was the rest of the world.

Because there is no one on earth who is righteous in God’s eyes (Psalm 53:1; 143:2), God Himself had to come into the world in the form of a human being.

Only God Himself could make such an infinitely precious and forever lasting sacrifice (Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

1 Timothy 2:3).

Jesus had to be both God and man at the same time.

The fact that Jesus was a man gave him the potential to die.

Salvation is only available to those who place their faith in Jesus Christ. Then He went on to say, “I am that which is both way and truth and life.” “There is no other way to the Father but through me” (John 14:6). Back to the Crucial Questions page. What is the identity of Jesus Christ?

Who Was Jesus?

What do we know about Jesus, and how do we know it? (Photo courtesy of Shutterstock.) According to the Christian Gospels and early Christian writings, Jesus was the Messiah (Christ), the Son of God who was crucified for the sins of humanity before rising from the dead. In the Gospels, it is claimed that Jesus, who was born around 4 B.C., was able to perform supernatural feats such as healing a wide range of diseases simply by touching or speaking to people. Among his other alleged abilities were the ability to walk on water, create vast quantities of fish and bread in an instant, raise the dead, rise from the dead himself, calm storms, and exorcise demons from people.

Was he a genuine person or a fictional character?

A major challenge in trying to understand who Jesus was and what he was like is that the first texts that discuss Jesus were written around 100 years after his death — although it is likely that they were copied from documents that were written around the same time as Jesus — making it difficult to know what Jesus was really like.

instead.

Birth and early life

According to the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, Jesus was born in Bethlehem to Mary, who was a virgin at the time of his birth. Scholars disagree on the exact year of Jesus’ birth, although they largely agree that it occurred between 7 B.C. and 1 B.C. According to academics, the legend of Jesus’ birth on December 25 did not begin until centuries later, and there is no evidence that he was actually born on that day. The Gospel of Matthew tells the story of how magi (a term that is sometimes translated as “wise men”) traveled from the east, following the star of Bethlehem (which some scientists have speculated could be a comet from the planet Venus), and brought gifts for the infant Jesus, including gold, frankincense, and myrrh for his parents.

  1. According to the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus and his family survived by fleeing to Egypt and not returning until after Herod’s death.
  2. The Gospels chronicle the story of Jesus’ childhood in Nazareth, where he lived with his mother, Mary, her husband, Joseph, and Jesus’ siblings and cousins.
  3. After reaching adulthood, the Gospel of Mark reports that Jesus worked as a carpenter, and that there was a tension between Jesus and his family at the time.
  4. Mark 6:4 says that a prophet is not without respect unless and until he is recognized in his own town, among his family, and in his own house.
  5. at Nazareth was made as a result of recent archaeological excavation.
  6. It seems from archaeological evidence that the residents of first-century Nazareth were Jewish and less prone to accept Greco-Roman culture than the people who lived in the adjacent town of Sepphoris, according to archaeological evidence.

Ministry

Generally speaking, academics think that Jesus did not commit himself fully to his mission until he was around 30 years old. According to the biblical narrative, Jesus had not been ministering for very long when he was killed, which suggests that he had not been ministering for very long. According to the Gospel narratives, Jesus spent the most of his ministry in the region around Galilee. In their accounts, Jesus is described as typically avoiding luxury, being content to converse with “tax collectors” and “sinners,” favoring the poor, and clashing regularly with Jewish religious officials who questioned his claim that he was the Messiah.

  • He had disagreements with his 12 followers from time to time, criticizing them when they shown a lack of faith or perseverance.
  • Following their inability to expel a “unclean demon” from a youngster, Jesus became enraged.
  • ‘How much longer am I going to put up with you?'” 9:19 in the Gospel of Mark.
  • There will be earthquakes in a number of locations, as well as famines.” Mark 13:8 is a passage from the Bible that explains how to be a Christian.
  • After that, the leaders brought Jesus before Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect (governor) of Judea, where he was placed on trial for his actions.
  • Following Jesus’ crucifixion and burial in a tomb, legend has it that Jesus awoke from his death and returned to life.
  • In the years 26 to 37 A.D., Pontius Pilate served as governor of Judea, and the execution of Jesus would have taken place at some point during that time period.
  • Following new study by Joan Taylor, it has been suggested that Jesus was of normal height, with short black hair and brown eyes, as well as olive-brown complexion.

What did Jesus look like?

Recent study undertaken by Joan Taylor, professor of Christian Origins and Second Temple Judaism at King’s College London, has provided us with a glimpse of what Jesus could have looked like in his day. Her study reveals that Jesus was around 5 feet 5 inches tall, had olive-brown complexion and black hair, and likely kept his beard and hair short and well-trimmed in order to keep lice out, which was a big problem at the time of his ministry. Taylor writes in her book “What Did Jesus Look Like?” that Jesus’ occupation as a carpenter and the fact that he went on foot, along with the fact that Jesus was likely unable to eat regular meals, meant that he was likely skinny yet fairly strong (T T Clark, 2018).

In any case, he shouldn’t be portrayed as someone who was content with his lot in life; unfortunately, that’s the type of picture we sometimes receive.” Additional materials are available at:

Christ in Us: How Does He Live in You?

Galatians 2:20 is a strong and well-known verse in the Bible. “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me,” said the apostle Paul, “and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” What exactly did the apostle Paul mean when he said that? What was the source of God’s inspiration for him to proclaim that Jesus Christ dwells inside him? Is it possible for Him to reside within me and you?

How does Christ live in me?

First and foremost, let’s talk about what it does not mean. Christ’s presence in us does not imply that He has taken possession of our bodies and is living our lives for us. It does not imply that He has complete control over our thoughts and decides all of our decisions for us. But what exactly does this mean? The Bible makes it quite plain that we are to serve as God’s house and dwelling place (2 Corinthians 6:16). When Solomon built the temple in Jerusalem in the Old Testament, he did it “in honor and glory of the LORD God of Israel” (2 Chronicles 6:10).

  • Instead, He resides in the presence of the Father and in the hearts of converted Christians.
  • By the power of His Holy Spirit, we are able to.
  • Through the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ may come to live in the heart of a person.
  • We grow more like God the Father and Jesus Christ as the Holy Spirit dwells inside us, enabling us to truly become more like them in terms of nature and character as well as spirit, attitudes, approach, and love.
  • More information about the power of the Holy Spirit may be found in the article “How Do You Know You Have the Holy Spirit?”

Walk as Jesus walked

According to all of the scriptures on this subject, the life of Jesus Christ will be in us only if we endeavor to live our lives according to His way of life—to walk as He walked and live as He lived—in order to be like Him. What all of the texts on this subject suggest is that we shall only have Jesus Christ’s life in us if we endeavor to follow His way of life—to walk as He walked, to live as He lived—in our daily lives (1 John 2:6). This is referred to in the Bible as “putting off the old man and putting on the new one” (Ephesians 4:22-24).

  1. However, it is our choice and power, not His, that governs this process.
  2. He doesn’t compel us to do anything.
  3. God’s purpose is for us to be “conformed to the image of His Son,” which means that we should look like Him (Romans 8:29).
  4. In order for us to inherit eternal life in His family, the Father wants us to be forming the character of Jesus Christ inside us at all times.
  5. We shall be guided in this direction by the Holy Spirit, who will disclose knowledge and wisdom to us while also motivating us to reform and live righteously.

God, on the other hand, will not compel us to live this way. It is all up to us. “Following in His Footsteps” is a book that will teach you more about walking in Jesus’ footsteps.

We must desire and work to walk as Jesus walked

We must have a strong desire to change and become more like Christ if we are to embody Christ in our lives by living as He lived. We must desire to seek to have Jesus Christ’s life in us in order for Him to provide us with the assistance we require to accomplish that goal. The desire and willingness to change (as well as a complete and total commitment of heart to change) are the most important things we can bring to the discussion. It is God who is at work in us, as we read in Philippians 2:13, “for it is he who works in you, enabling you to will and to work for his good pleasure” (New Revised Standard Version).

  1. This means that we must cry out to God in prayer for the assistance we require to change our ways.
  2. “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men,” the apostle John declared (John 1:4).
  3. He directs us to the path, but we must be motivated to follow him.
  4. But, once again, only if we actively seek it.
  5. He will not, however, make the changes we need to make on our behalf.
  6. However, even though we must let go of our own will in order for God to work in us, this does not imply that God will take care of everything for us.
  7. In fact, in the New Testament, Christians are frequently referred to as “laborers” (Colossians 4:11; 2 Timothy 2:15; 3 John 1:8).
  8. Are you looking for the church that is behind Life, Hope, and Truth?

Christ in us is what Christianity is all about

We must have a strong desire to change and become more like Christ if we are to embody Christ in our lives by living as He did. The only way for Jesus Christ to provide us with the assistance we require is if we sincerely desire to have His life in us. What we bring to the table first and foremost is a strong desire and readiness to change (as well as a complete and total commitment of heart to change). It is God who is at work in us, as we read in Philippians 2:13, “because it is he who works in you, giving you the ability to will and work for his good pleasure” (New Revised Standard Version).

  1. In order to make a change, we must pray to God and beg for the guidance we need.
  2. “In Him was life, and the life was the light of humanity,” according to the apostle John (John 1:4).
  3. It is not enough for him to beckon us to the road; we must genuinely desire to be there.
  4. Only if we look for it, once again.
  5. Additionally, He will not make the necessary adjustments for us.
  6. Although we must surrender our own will in order for God to act in us, this does not imply that God will take care of everything.
  7. Christianity is referred to as “workers” throughout the New Testament (Colossians 4:11; 2 Timothy 2:15; 3 John 1:8).

In order to cultivate Christ’s character inside us, we must put up a consistent effort. Look no farther than Life, Hope, and Truth to find the church that is behind it all. You may find out more about us on the page “Who We Are.”

Who is Jesus? What Scripture Says About Jesus

“All of them then exclaimed: ‘Are You indeed the Son of God?’ So He told them, “You are absolutely correct in your assessment of me.”” (See Luke 22:70.) In the midst of their discussion, Jesus appeared and said to them, “‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.'” (Matthew 28:18; Mark 12:18). Because He not only violated the Sabbath, but also claimed that God was his Father, so elevating himself to the status of God, the Jews were even more determined to assassinate Him (John 5:17).

27 “My sheep recognize My voice, and I recognize them; therefore, they follow Me;28and I give them everlasting life, and they will never die; and no one will be able to take them from My hand because I have given them eternal life.

30 “I and the Father are one,” says the Son.

32Jesus responded, “I demonstrated to you many excellent deeds from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” 33The Jews said, “We do not stone You for doing a good deed; rather, we stone You for blasphemy; and we stone You because You, being a man, make yourself out to be God.” (See also John 10:27.) Keep in mind that, while a man claiming to be God is a radical notion, Jesus is the first leader of a world religion to have made such a claim – and to have provided evidence to support his claim as well.

How?

Jesus lived a sinless life

“In light of the fact that we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us keep our confession firm.” Indeed, we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but rather One who has been tempted in every way as we are, yet has come out unscathed. (See also Hebrews 4:1) God was able to accept His sacrifice since He did not commit any sin. “Christ likewise suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but raised to life by the Spirit,” according to 1 Peter 3:18, “that He may bring us to God.” 2 Corinthians 2:11 states that God caused Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, “so that we may become the righteousness of God by His death.”

Jesus said He is the one and only way to God

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one else can do these things for you. No one else can bring someone to the Father but through Me ” (John 14:6).

He had the power to forgive sins and provide everlasting life

“‘I am the resurrection and the life,’ Jesus declared to her in response to her question. Even if a person dies because of his or her faith in me, that person will live; and whomever lives and believes in me will never die ” (John 11:25). “”Friend, your sins are forgiven,” Jesus told them after noticing their confidence in Him. The Pharisees and the professors of the law started to wonder aloud, ‘Who is this man who talks blasphemy?’ they wondered. ‘Who else but God has the power to pardon sins?'” (See Luke 5:20.) As Jesus said, “For the will of my Father is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him will have everlasting life, and I will raise him up at the final day” (John 6:40).

Those who trust in me will have everlasting life, I assure you of that. (See also John 6:47.)

Jesus predicted his own death and resurrection

“In an aside, Jesus informed the Twelve that they were about to ascend into Jerusalem, and that all that had been written about the Son of Man would be fulfilled. Eventually, he will be turned over to the Gentiles. They will make fun of him, taunt him, spit on him, flog him, and even murder him in the process. He will resurrect from the dead on the third day.'” (See Luke 18:31.)

He said He would come back

Matthew 24:27 (KJV) “As lightning strikes from the east and flashes to the west, so will the Son of Man’s arrival be heralded by the same pattern. It will be at that time that a sign from the Son of Man will come in the sky, and every nation on the face of the globe will weep. They will see the arrival of the Son of Man in the clouds of the sky, accompanied by tremendous power and glory.” 14:61 (Matthew 14:61) “‘Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?’ the high priest inquired once again of the man.

You will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of The Mighty One, descending on the clouds of heaven,’ says the prophet.” Clearly, Jesus recognized that He was the Lamb of God, the promised Messiah prophesied in the Old Testament.

When He arrives, He will judge the crimes of the entire world.
