- In this article, you will read some points that can shape your thoughts toward greater respect for Lord Jesus and humanity.
How do you interpret Jesus, or what is your understanding of him?
Both questions come down to your knowledge of his illustrations and how much you understand them.
He preached many aspects of eternal life in the parables.
His every mentioned statement is profound wisdom. However, it is a challenge to understand those statements correctly for laymen who do not belong to the spiritual world or practices and do not believe in the fundamental law of humanity.
Although, there is a simple way to understand and believe in Jesus if you read and review all his actions.
If you read his journey, you will find how he never stayed in one place but kept on traveling progressively to make human society realize the meaning of life. In his visits, we can see how his Holy Spirit was powerful in performing miracles, healing the sick, and freeing the sinful soul.
At the same time, you also find that he was involved in spirituality and used to go to pray in solitude.
“Luke 6:12, ESV: (https://biblia.com/bible/esv/luke/6/12) In these days he went out to the mountain to pray, and all night he continued in prayer to God. Luke 6:12, KJV: And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. “
Jesus helped people in many ways
The entire life of Jesus was dedicated to helping people who were marginalized in society. As a man without any greed or sin, he taught his followers the meaning of life and humanity, so he was called Master by them. He was born as a holy spirit inside a human being and was called a Messiah because he took upon himself the sins of others’ deeds and freed people from them.
If you read what he preached, you can save a glimpse of all the events connected with Jesus in your mind; you can find what it is about him that makes us worship from our hearts.
What did Jesus say about the poor?
According to Luke 6:20, “Looking at his disciples he said: ‘Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God”
Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed.”
Luke 14:13-14, “But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
Jesus cleanses a Leper
According to Synoptic Gospels: Matthew 8:1-4, “When Jesus had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. And behold, a leper came and worshiped him, saying, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
Then Jesus put out his hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing, to be cleansed.” And Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one, but you go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”
In Mark and Luke, the healed man instead went out and began to talk freely, spreading the news. As a result, Jesus could no longer enter a town openly but stayed outside in lonely places. Yet the people still came to him from everywhere.
The apostle Jesus taught in synagogues, preached the kingdom gospel, and healed every sickness and every disease throughout all the cities and villages.
Jesus healed many, therefore, it is not just a miracle, he performed many miracles in his life and said “This is doing your faith.”
Prince of Peace, who chose those who were neglected in Society.
According to the Bible, Jesus was a Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, and Everlasting Father, According to Matthew 19:21, Jesus Christ said, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
Through this sermon, Jesus has tried to make us understand that no one can be perfect because of money. You have to use the money for helping the needy or poor. If you do that, you will go directly into the kingdom of God, which is a real treasure, and true happiness. He presented a true definition of wealth, which renounces selfishness and attachment.
If you give up your physical wealth with true spirit, then only you will be able to come in the company of Jesus.
Jesus Christ was the Prince of Peace who was incarnated to take away the world’s sin”, and his life proved it.
People crowned him the word of “God,” but he wore a crown of thorns.
He incarnated as a human being and called himself always “son of man.” He was not born into a wealthy family but into a poor one. God chose a human life for him, dedicated to poor and needy people.
He taught many things to his followers and people from his parables. He did not speak in favor of any religion, but he trained people to be kind, helpful, awareness of walking on the right path in life. Jesus often taught that to reach the kingdom of God, one must serve the poor and needy.
In The Parable of the Sower, Mark wrote– “He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: “Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places where it did not much soil. It sprang up quickly because the soil was shallow. But the plants were scorched and withered when the sun came up because they had no roots. Other seeds fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so they did not bear grain. 8 Still, other seeds fell on good soil. It came up, grew, and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.” 9 Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
This meaning of Jesus can be understood by those who want to pursue good things, whose hearts are free from useless abominations, and Those whose hearts are open to embracing the new light of knowledge; they will rise by their faith in good things, But if you choose the wrong path, you will be crushed under thorns in spite of growing up. After this parable, Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.” He never forced anyone to follow him, But he tried to sow the seed of knowledge, allowing the individual to brainstorm.
Jesus Christ was the savior.
People called him “Missayah,” Rabbi or Teacher because people were encouraged to move toward liberation instead of any kind of bondage through his Spirituality.
He was the Holy Spirit with a loaded superpower. Jesus gave vision to the born blind, liberated people from terrible diseases, as well as magically cleared people from sinful spirits.
He always preached against pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth.
In Spirituality, if a human rises above these feelings, they become free from worldly bondage and enter the Kingdom of God in the form of the Holy Spirit.
Religion is the product of humans, but Spirituality paves the path to salvation, and Jesus always showed the way to salvation.
Yet, there were many miraculous abilities possessed by him. When he sat anywhere, he talked, and people became his followers. He washed away many sins and purified the souls. Evil powers could not defy his order. From the Gospel of Mark, we can read the most amazing miracles Jesus did to keep humanity alive.
Just think why God had to be born in such challenging circumstances. What made him sacrifice himself for people?
People called Jesus the “Messiah,” who taught humanity to Society, brought out the true meaning of things, and gave true knowledge against religious hypocrisy. The thinking and the spirit of human service inside Jesus were like divine power. But he never liked to call himself God. He preferred to call himself the son of man. Through many stories in the Bible, we come to know that he had spiritual power. They were mainly in the direction of washing away sins from the unclean spirits.
The answer is so simple, and it is called humanity, which allows you to compare, argue, and choose between good and evil. This is humanity, which encourages your internal voice of help and peace.
Humanity weighs heavily on ignorance and falsehood. Humanity has knowledge at its core. You will never support deception and false pretense if you have inside. You cannot go against the light of humanity.
If you observe and analyze carefully, you will find that there was only one religion – of humanity and nature, which had a spiritual process at its core. The religions of differences that have been established are not done by god and are not appreciated in the kingdom of god.
The division of human religion and the wrong interpretations have been done ignorantly. Lord Jesus never said he belonged to a specific religion. He did not even keep his identity from his real parents. He always portrayed himself as a son of Man and a Son of God.
The people living in a particular geographical boundary have reserved the symbols of humanity in their own interest, and we all take pride in believing the same to be true. Whatever violence and hatred have taken place in the world in the name of religions have nothing to do with the teachings of those great personalities. Disruptive wrong forces always misguided people under the guise of religion.
Jesus also opposed the same hypocrites and made a positive effort to understand the hidden human values of the old religion, which led to his crucifixion.
In the Gospel of Luke, there is a story of a woman healed by Jesus. However, she has been suffering from a bleeding disorder for 12 years. It is often translated as “hemorrhaging.” No one could cure her disease. As a result, she lived in isolation and would have been known for her uncleanliness.
But, once, when Jesus was in the crowd, she came up behind Jesus and touched the fringe of his clothes, and immediately her hemorrhage stopped. When Jesus asked, “Who touched me?” She fell straight at his feet. Then, in the crowd’s presence, she told why she had touched him and how she had been immediately healed. Then Jesus said to her, ‘Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.”
Jesus Christ Superstar
Christ and Christianity are almost synonymous. But in the name of the “Son of God”, have we lost the essence of the incredible humanity that Jesus embodied? Perhaps it is time we bring the spirit of Jesus back into our hearts.
Sadhguru, a Spiritual Indian Yogi says, “The most significant aspect of Jesus’s teaching was about living without prejudice, without seeing who is yours and who is not yours. Only then would one know the kingdom of God.
He clearly said, “The Kingdom of God is not somewhere up there, it is within you.” Only in the initial “marketing phase” did Jesus talk about taking you to the Kingdom of God. Once enough people had gathered around him, he turned around and said, “The Kingdom of God is within you.” That is the crux of his teaching.” Read more about Jesus Christ by Sadhguru at https://isha.sadhguru.org/us/en/wisdom/article/jesus-christ-superstar
“The hard cold season, December, and the day of 25 symbolize a joyful celebration-“Christmas.” We look forward to this day and are warmly engaged in Christmas preparations.
According to researchers, it is not the actual birthday of Jesus because his Date of birth is not mentioned in the Bible, or the Date is lost in history, but the church in Rome began formally celebrating Christmas on December 25, 336.
So whatever the Date of birth of Jesus, it is essential to remember him and understand his teaching goals. We need to churn out the knowledge that hides in his orders. “Read more about Christ born at https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/christ-is-born
