Who was Jesus?

Jesus was born into a humble home family of Galileans. As a boy He learned the carpenter’s trade. However, He really was a messenger from God. He was God’s message to a dark and dying world. He was a ray of hope among the darkness, a way out of the pain. Jesus spent three years walking around Palestine healing the sick, sticking up for the downtrodden, casting out demons, and uttering the greatest moral teachings this world has ever heard. Jesus was a person with a mission in life. He knew why He was on earth and He was determined to fulfill it in God’s timing. Jesus had a very intimate relationship with His Father. In short, Jesus is the greatest example for us today.

Jesus let His relationship with the Father so fill His life that He did radical things. He was condemned by a religious council for claiming to be God. Now, why did they condemn Him for being who He said he was? It was because a peaceful Rabbi who was willing to suffer didn’t match their picture of God. To them God would come to revenge the nation, not hang out with sinners. They had the Romans try Him for treason and then had Him executed on a Roman cross. However, He didn’t stay under the bondage of the grave; He broke free and returned to commission His followers to spread the gospel of the Kingdom throughout the world.

Really, the title of this post should be “Who Jesus is” because Jesus hasn’t ceased to exist. He resides with the Father, but His Spirit remains on this earth. He is still offering a ray of hope amidst the darkness; He is still the way people move out of the pain, violence, and bloodshed and into the arms of the Father. Jesus is the answer for the world today!
