Bruce Carroll – Who Will Be Jesus
He returned home from work last night to discover that she had vanished. The next day, he spends his first Sunday sitting in the pew by himself. He hears murmurs all around him, and his heart hurts in two places. He’s wondering who will reach out to him and assist him in getting through this. Who will play the role of Jesus in his life? Who will be the one to show him the love that would bring him back to life? He doesn’t require the services of a judge; rather, he requires the services of a buddy.
She has a similar reputation as the woman who works at the well.
I and you are the ones who will be Jesus to her, as the Savior pleads with her to recognize Himself in us.
Will she recognize the majesty of the God we worship in us?
Everywhere you look, there are wounded people.
Who is going to be Jesus to them?
Oh, they don’t require a judge; rather, they require a buddy who will serve as Jesus to them.
Bruce Carroll – Who Will Be Jesus Lyrics
He returned home from work last night to discover that she had vanished. He’s now enjoying his first Sunday with his family. I’m alone in the pew, and I’m thinking about. There are whispers all around him, and he can’t hear them. His heart is torn in two, and he wonders who will reach out to him and assist him in getting through this. As the lady at the well, she has a reputation for being unfaithful, and the only love she has ever known is the type of love she buys and sells. Nevertheless, her thirsty heart is looking for a love that would last forever, The Savior screams out for her to recognize Himself in me and you, but who will be Jesus to her?, and who will demonstrate the love that is mandated by His word?
- People that have been wounded all throughout the world, Are there any signs of Jesus in their eyes when they look at us?
- Who would serve as Jesus to them?

7 Promises for Those Who Follow Jesus
God’s promises are abundantly recorded in the Bible. These promises are extremely essential to us because they assist to keep us grounded and provide us with reason to remain hopeful through difficult circumstances. In reality, we should be constructing our lives on the foundation of God’s dependable promises. The following are seven promises made to individuals who choose to follow Christ:
Jesus then stated to his disciples, “Whoever wishes to become my disciple must deny themselves, take up their cross, and follow me.'” In other words, whomever wishes to save their life will lose it, but whoever wishes to risk their life for me will find it.” Matt. 16:24–25 (New International Version). Despite the fact that it appears to be an enormous paradox, we will only discover life when we stop chasing it. The moment we stop pursuing after the things that we assume would bring us life and instead follow the one who created life, we find life as it was intended to be (John 10:10).
“Whomever comes to me will never be driven away,” says the Father, “and whoever comes to me will never be driven away” (John 6:37, NIV). This verse was originally referred to as “one of his favorite verses” by Charles Spurgeon. As we go through this text, we see Christ’s guarantee that he will not turn away those who approach to him. This acceptance may be found throughout Jesus’ encounters with people in the Gospels. Come to him and he will welcome us with open arms if we come to him. Inviting everyone, Christ embraces everyone who chooses to follow him, and he welcomes all who do so.
“Whoever comes to me will never be driven away,” says the Father, referring to those who are given to me (John 6:37, NIV). This verse was originally referred to as “one of his favorite verses” by the preacher Charles Spurgeon. Throughout this section, we learn of Christ’s guarantee that people who come to him will not be turned away. Across the Gospels, we witness evidence of this acceptance sprinkled throughout his relationships. Come to him and he will welcome us with open arms, no matter how far we have traveled.
“Whoever obeys my commandments and does it with integrity is the one who loves me.” ‘The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and show myself to them,’ says the Savior (John 14:21, NIV). Ultimately, when it comes down to it, there is an element of God’s truth that can only be comprehended from the inside out. In compared to the experience of having a personal connection with God via Christ, all of the arguments and evidence for God’s existence pale in comparison to When we follow Jesus’ instructions, he says that he will present himself to us.
5.Friendship with God
“If you follow my instructions, you are my pals.” I no longer refer to you as servants, because a servant is not familiar with his master’s affairs. Instead, I’ve addressed you as friends, since I’ve shared all I’ve learned from my Father with you” (John 15:14–15, New International Version). Jesus came to bring about God’s reconciliation with mankind. We are taken aback not only by the fact that a bridge would be erected between God and mankind, but also by the fact that we would enter this connection as friends.
Yet, this is exactly what Jesus offers us in his teachings. A number of passages in the Bible deal with the subject of friendship, and this is one of them.
“I have loved you in the same way that the Father has loved me. Now, please remain in my affection. As long as you follow my commandments, you will continue to be in my love, just as I have followed my Father’s commands and continue to be in his love. “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be full,” Jesus says in John 15:9–11 (New International Version). We’re taught to reside in God’s love on a continuous basis, and he assures us that we may do so by following his rules and regulations.
Why does he want to be sure that he is in this relationship for the long haul?
Jesus assures us that joy will come as a result of our decision to remain in God’s love.
Every person who seeks to live a virtuous life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, as the Bible states (2 Timothy 3:12, NIV). When it comes down to it, following Jesus puts you in direct conflict with the rest of the world. Persecutory measures might range from mild to severe. Some who follow Jesus will lose friends, family, careers, opportunities, and sometimes even their lives as a result of their faith. This reality is one of the reasons why these other promises are made in the first place.
“Blessed are those who are persecuted for doing what is right, because theirs is the kingdom of heaven,” Jesus declares in Matthew 5.
Share these promises with the world!
Everyone should be able to benefit from Christ’s promises of eternal life, joy, and relationship with God. Jesus is reconciling the entire world to himself, and we have the honor of participating in this process with him!

Greetings, dear brothers and sisters I am glad for the opportunity to talk with you on this Easter Sunday, and I thank you for your time. 1 The atoning sacrifice and Resurrection of Jesus Christ irrevocably altered the course of each of our lives. We adore Him and are glad for the opportunity to worship Him and our heavenly Father. During the last six months, we have continued to battle with the effects of a worldwide epidemic. My admiration for your fortitude and spiritual strength in the face of disease, bereavement, and loneliness continues to grow.
- If you have reacted to your hardships with greater discipleship, this last year will not have been a waste of your time and energy.
- Truly, the gospel’s blessings are for all time, regardless of race, language, or people.
- Our commander is none other than Jesus Christ.
- In this confusing, acrimonious, and tired society, the gospel of Jesus Christ is exactly what is required.
- There is no other message that is more important to our pleasure today and in the future.
- There is no alternative message that can resolve the divisions in our society.
According to the Apostle Paul, “It is impossible to satisfy God without faith: because he who comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him with all their heart.” 3 Faith is the foundation of everything good in life, including every potential benefit of everlasting importance.
- Faith in Jesus Christ’s ability to cleanse, cure, and strengthen us is the starting point for true repentance and forgiveness.
- In spite of this, putting one’s confidence in God might seem overwhelming.
- The words of the prophet Alma in the Book of Mormon, on the other hand, set such anxieties to rest.
- I am reminded of the Lord’s scripture promise that if we “have faith as a grain of mustard seed,” then we would be able to “say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto us.” 7The Lord sees our frailty as mortal beings.
- He, on the other hand, is well aware of our enormous potential.
- The mustard seed signifies a modest, yet rising, amount of faith in the world.
- But He does want us to put our faith in Him.
Jesus Christ will strengthen your power to move mountains in your life as a result of your faith, even if your personal obstacles appear to be as formidable as Mount Everest.
Your mountains will be different, but the solution to each of your difficulties will be to strengthen your faith.
Lazy students and sluggish followers will constantly struggle to muster even a sliver of trust in their hearts.
No exemption applies when it comes to becoming a sincere follower of Jesus Christ.
I’d like to make five ideas to assist you in developing your faith and trust.
Learn how to become a more active learner.
Understand the doctrine of Christ so that you can appreciate its significance for your life.
He took your misfortune, your faults, your weaknesses, and your crimes onto himself.
Your faith, trust, and willingness to follow Him are what enable you to achieve that power.
Discover the concept of miracles.
The most important aspect of that faith is believing in His plan and timetable—how and when He will provide you with the miracle assistance you need.
10 Because the more you study about Jesus Christ, the simpler it will be for you to put your faith in his mercy, His unlimited love, and His resurrecting, healing, and redeeming power.
Second, make the decision to believe in Jesus Christ.
Take your questions to the Lord and to other trustworthy sources for answers.
Stop reinforcing your doubts by rehearsing them with other people who have doubts.
Third, have trust in what you’re doing.
Consider the implications of this.
Then, by doing something that necessitates more faith, you will acquire even greater faith.
Ordinances are keys to unlocking God’s power in your life.
It takes effort to have faith.
“However, everyone who asks receives; and everyone who seeks finds; and to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” 13God understands what you need to hear in order for your faith to grow.
Those who do not believe in God would argue that faith is for the weak.
If the Savior’s Apostles had questioned Him, would they have continued to preach His message after His death, even at the risk of their lives?
Is it possible that approximately 2,000 Saints would have perished along the pioneer trail15 if they had not believed that the gospel of Jesus Christ had been restored?
Do not downplay the faith that you already possess.
When you follow prophets rather than experts and popular opinion, you are demonstrating trust.
When the world proclaims that God’s mandate of chastity is no longer valid, it requires faith to live a chaste life in this day and age.
The ability to beg for the life of a loved one requires faith, and much more fortitude to accept a disappointing response requires faith.
Each of the island nations has been battered by torrential rainfall for many days.
Just as the meetings got underway in Samoa, Fiji, and Tahiti, the rain ceased completely.
Although 13,000 devoted Saints arrived hours early to secure a seat, they endured patiently under a continuous rainstorm before sitting through a very wet two-hour meeting in the rain.
The mountains in our life do not always move in the manner or at the rate that we would want.
Faithalwaysimproves our ability to access divine power.
The Lord never slumbers or sleeps, and He never will.
He is performing miracles today, and He will continue to perform miracles in the future.
Any and all things are possible for those who have faith.
Yourburgeoningfaith will assist you in transforming difficulties into amazing development and opportunities.
He has ascended to the right hand of the Father to shepherd His Church.
He has risen from the dead to bless the lives of all of God’s children, regardless of where they dwell. We have the ability to move mountains in our life if we have confidence in Him. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen, I certify that this is true.
Chapter 56: Revelation 17–22
As a result of this interpretation, the verse “If any man shall add unto these things” (Revelation 22:18) has been interpreted as a proclamation that no new scripture will be revealed after the completion of Revelation’s writing. The Quorum of the Twelve Apostles’ Elder Jeffrey R. Holland explained that this statement refers only to the book of Revelation and not to the entire Bible: “One of the New Testament passages frequently cited in support of a closed canon is Revelation 22:18, which states, ‘If any man shall add to these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book.'” Elder Jeffrey R.
- Researchers of today recognize that some New Testament “books” were written after John got his revelation on the Isle of Patmos, which is very probable to have been written after the revelation was received.
- It’s possible that there are even more than these.
- This is due to the fact that the entire Bible as we know it today—a collection of passages bound together in a single volume—did not exist at the time the verse was penned.
- “Of the whole corpus of 5,366 known Greek New Testament manuscripts, just 35 contain the full New Testament as we now know it, and 34 of them were produced after A.D.1000,” according to Ensignor Liahona’s “My Words.
The request of James and John to sit beside Jesus
The Last Journey to Jerusalem – Part 6 of the Life of Jesus Christ – Chapter 8: The Last Journey to Jerusalem Previous article |Life of Jesus Christ Index|*Word List|Next article |Life of Jesus Christ Index Barrie Wetherill’s online Bible Study course on the life of Jesus is available for free. Level B of EasyEnglish is used to write this book. Please see the links below for more online Bible Study books and commentaries that may be of use. Alternatively, you can consult the Word List, which provides explanations for terms marked with a *star.
Jesus and his *disciples were on their way to Jerusalem at this point. Two *apostles, James and John, who were brothers, approached Jesus with a question: If they were to seat one on each side of Jesus when he began to govern his *kingdom, would it be considered an honor? James and John were under the impression that a *kingdom would be established on earth immediately. [The *kingdom* that Jesus talked of is the *kingdom* of God. Every person who loves God is a member of his *kingdom. God’s *kingdom, on the other hand, is not yet complete.] The *apostles want to be in a position of authority.
Evidence suggests that these brothers may have been relatives of Jesus, according to some scholars.
This is something that happens frequently in today’s world.
Take note of what the request is requesting. They want a position of great honor and power for themselves. They had not expressed an interest in serving in the *kingdom. They did not request that Jesus make use of them. They sought for respect and authority.
The other *disciples’ reaction
The other *apostles were enraged at this point. They were also interested in these positions! The *apostles were all driven by their own interests. They wondered aloud, ‘What is there for me in this whole thing?’ This was a power battle on a grand scale. As a result, people wondered, ‘Who would be the greatest?’ (See, for example, Matthew 18:1-3 and Matthew 19:27-30, particularly verse 27.) The brothers were perplexed by their request and acted accordingly. This was revealed to them by Jesus.
- Jesus is the Son of God.
- This was beyond the comprehension of the brothers.
- He asked his brothers whether they would be willing to suffer alongside him.
- The following is what Jesus said: Mark 10:39, 40 ‘You shall drink from the same cup that I do.
- However, I have no control over who seats to my right or left.
Power in God’s *kingdom
After then, Jesus made another comment. This demonstrates that the *Kingdom of God is vastly superior than any *kingdom on this planet. 10:42-44 (Mark 10:42-44) Jesus gathered his *disciples in one place. ‘You are aware of this,’ he said. The rulers of the Gentiles [Gentiles are individuals who do not belong to the Jewish faith] wield enormous authority. Their significant authorities issue a large number of commands to the populace. You must not behave in such a manner. Anyone who aspires to greatness among you must first serve you as a servant.
- In my nation, there are many magnificent mansions to behold.
- They were compelled to labor extremely hard for little compensation by wealthy individuals.
- That is what occurs when one group of people has control over another.
- Until Jesus died on the *cross, the *apostles had the wrong objectives, according to the Bible.
- He teaches that our aim should be to serve others in the *Kingdom of God, and that we should strive to do so.
- Our objective should not be to impose our will on others.
- This would be a blessing to them and would enable them to assist others.
- They should be of use to others.)
Jesus came to serve
Last but not least, Jesus made another comment. This demonstrated how he had personally come to serve. Mark 10:45 a.m. Even the Son of Man did not come to be served by others, as the Scriptures indicate. He came to the world to help others. He came to die, but he also came to save mankind from the consequences of their *sin. Take a look at this fantastic item. Jesus is the son of God, and he has made his home with God in the *heavenly kingdom. He, on the other hand, departed his home in *heaven.
- The fact that he was born in our world does not detract from his lowly beginnings.
- His birth took place in a shed that was used for animals.
- He came to be of service.
- He came to share the good news of God with the people.
- Here’s something more that’s fantastic.
- He came to die in order to save humanity from the consequences of their *sin*.
Then God will be able to provide us with *eternal life. John 3:16 is a biblical passage that teaches that God is love. ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,’ the Bible says. He promises that anybody who trusts in him will not perish but will have *eternal life.’
This is the type of leadership that Jesus exemplifies for us. He wants us to have leaders who are similar to him. And he wants us to take on the role of leaders in the same way. These concepts are diametrically opposed to the concepts held by the *apostles! It’s important to remember that Jesus imparted this lesson to the *apostles. He was not imparting knowledge to others. He wished for his *disciples to be modest in their actions. Before he died on the *cross, Jesus painstakingly reiterated the message multiple times to his disciples.
- There are several tasks that someone must complete.
- Rather than simply giving commands, we need to be prepared to provide service to others.
- We must be prepared to do something else in order to assist the church.
- He did not come to command other people about, but rather to serve and care for them.
- He even sacrificed his life for the sake of others.
During the tale of James and John’s request in Matthew (Matthew 20:20-28), they make mention of their mother. This was also desired by her. She desired for her boys to be prominent figures in God’s *kingdom. But who was the mother in this case? We are aware of the identities of the three women who were present at the *cross. The names of the books of the Bible vary from one another. Matthew 27:55-56: Jesus and his *disciples were well-provided for by these women. One of the women was referred to as ‘the mother of Zebedee’s sons.’ ] [According to Mark 1:19, Zebedee was the father of James and John.] Mark 15:40: Salome was most likely the name of the mother of Zebedee’s boys when they were young.
Because of this, James and John have done something quite astute here.
And people are still behaving in the same manner now!
Show them Jesus: Teaching the Gospel to Kids: Jack Klumpenhower: 9781939946393: Amazon.com: Books

Jesus: Sermon on the Mount
The Sermon on the Mount by Jesus of Nazareth (KJV) After seeing the crowds, Jesus climbed up a mountain, and when he had reached the top, his disciples came to him: Matthew 51: Then he taught them by opening his lips and saying:3:Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4:Blessed are those who weep, because they will be comforted by the Lord. 5. Blessed are the humble, because they will inherit the earth. 6:Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, because they will be satisfied.
- Blessed are those who have a pure heart, since they will see God.
- 10:Blessed are those who are persecuted for the cause of righteousness, for it is theirs is the kingdom of heaven; for they are the children of God.
- 12: Rejoice and be very joyful, because great is your reward in heaven, since they persecuted the prophets who came before you in the same manner.
- 13: It is no longer useful for anything other than to be flung out and stomped under foot by mankind from this point on.
- You are the Word of God.
- 15: Neither do men light a candle and place it beneath an abushel, but rather they place it on a candlestick, which provides light for everyone in the house.
18: For truly I say unto you, until heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle of the law shall in no way be removed from it, until it is fully fulfilled in all its parts.
Twenty-one: For I say unto you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, ye will in no way be admitted into the kingdom of heaven.
Those who are enraged with their brother without justification will be subject to the judgment; those who say to their brother, Raca, will be subject to the council; and those who say to their brother, Fool, will be subject to the fires of hell.
25: Agree with thine enemy swiftly, while thou ist in the process of meeting with him; otherwise, the adversary may send thee to the judge, and the judge may deliver thee to the officer, and thou mayest be imprisoned at any moment.
27: You have heard that it was declared long ago, “Thou shall not commit adultery,” and you are correct.
29: And if thy right eye offends thee, take it out and hurl it from thee; for it is beneficial for thee that one of thy members perishes, rather than that thy entire body be cast into hell.
31: 31: It has been said, “Whosoever divorces his wife should offer her a written divorcement,” which means “Whosoever divorces his wife.” Those who divorce their wives, save for the reason of immorality (verse 32), are committing adultery; and those who marry a divorced woman are also committing adultery (verse 33).
- 36: Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou hast not the ability to turn a single hair white or black.
- 38: You have heard that it has been said, “An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth”; yet, this is not the case.
- 40: And if any man shall suit thee in court and take away thy coat, let him likewise take away thy cloke.
- 42: Give to those who ask of thee, and do not turn away from those who would borrow from thee.
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you; 45: that ye may be the children of your Father who is in heaven: for he causeth his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
- Do not even the publicans the same?
- do not even the publicans so?
- New International Version (New International Version) New RevisedStandard Version Matthew 61: Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
- Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
- 5: And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.
- 6: But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
- 8: Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
10: Thy kingdom come.
11: Give us this day our daily bread.
13: And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.
14: For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
19: Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.22: The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23: But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.
24: No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.
25: Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.
