RE: Open Church: How has Jesus transformed you?
I grew up in church and have always known of Jesus. I really didn't know him all that well until around 5 or so years ago and started studying more about His life, how He lived, what He taught and who He really was.
Here is a few quick things I did learn
- His Hebrew name is Yeshua....Jesus is Greek and was transliterated from the Hebrew
- He did not come to teach something new, to go against what was already given by God himself...John 7:16 "Jesus answered them and said, “My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me."
If I truly believed that He is the Messiah and that He died for my sins then I need to follow Him all of Him and not be just a fan of Him but to a follower of Him!
1 John 2:6 "He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked."
And that is what I am trying to do, follow His example.....we only have one example in the Bible of someone who did everything the right way! Even though I fail and need His forgiveness everyday that doesn't stop me from trying to follow Him!
That’s wonderful. Yes, Jesus is worthy of us giving up everything to follow Him. Thanks for sharing.
