Which one is your Jesus?
October 5, 2010 § 2 Comments
Awhile back I was watching the TV show “So you think you can dance”, when one of the dancer passed the audition (he was really talented by the way) and gave a remark — “Thank you baby Jesus”. As I was giggling at his words, I realized a serious problem that is rooted in our nature.
We like to pick and choose what we want to know as the truth. The single imagery of Jesus as a baby (like any other babies) is characterized as a sweet and innocent — almost helpless — individual, like such in a Christmas decoration. Recognizing Him exclusively as a baby Jesus may mislead us to an Incomplete or Incorrect understanding of Christ. What about the 30 years old Jesus? or the revelation Jesus that is going to come the second time and rule. It is also incomplete when we regard Christ as only our saviour, or as Ruler/Lord of our life without the former. And we assumed that we know what there is of Christ.
This is when our walk becomes stale, dry and tasteless. The value of Christ’s redemption on the cross diminishes each day. We cannot see “The riches of Christ” and “The mystery of Christ” (Colossians 1:27). It seems there is no more revelation when we read the word of God.
The reason Christ is not real in our life is because we only know/ want to know Him to a certain limit. The church today missed the big picture of Christ. The bible says “Christ is all in all” (Colossians 3:11). The whole existence of life is based and about Him. The bride needs to be presented to the wonders of her heavenly groom
in my next posts, I will present some images and foreshadowing of Christ to present his richness.
Share your thoughts. As I am also trying to learn and emerge myself in Christ’s richness
