Word for Today:  December 8

 

The Real Jesus

I have tried to notice some characteristics in His Life that probably would not be accepted in the life of any preacher in our society today.  He is not who most people think He is.  He was not what most people think He was.

  • He was Radical.
  • He was outspoken. He pulled no punches.  He shot straight and true.  He did not “beat around the bush.”
  • He was transparent. Who you saw was Who He was.  No pretense.  No hypocrisy.  No make-believe.  No disguise.
  • He was non- religious. Did not run with the ministerial crowd.
  • He was fearless.   He did not mince His words.  He did right with no fear of possible consequences.
  • He was an iconoclast. A Non-conformist.  He kicked over sacred cows.
  • He violated traditions and He shattered customs.
  • To the religious world He was a troublemaker.
  • He was controversial.
  • He took sides with the underdog and challenged the respected.
  • He was a friend to the sinner and the profane.
  • He embraced the simple and rejected the complicated. He spoke so little children could understand and confounded the wise with Wisdom and Truth.
  • He was Uncompromising. Even when He could have won friends in high places and ultimately saved His own life, He refused to compromise.
  • He was Anointed. And this is what drove Him to the Cross…

 

He is The Anointed One.  The Messiah.  The Christ.
