Most Christian believers worship a false image of Jesus Christ. There was nothing attractive about Jesus Christ. Neither His appearance, nor His words were attractive to men. We read in Isaiah 53:2 about Jesus Christ:”For he grew up before Him like a tender shoot and like a root out of parched ground. For He has no stately form or Majesty that we should look upon Him nor, appearance that we should be attracted to Him. He was despised and forsaken my men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief, and like one from whom men hide their face.” Is that the Jesus that you are worshiping? Is that the Jesus that you know? Unattractive, despised by men, or do you worship a beautiful picture of Jesus Christ?
The words of Jesus Christ are repulsive to this world they are repulsive to most Christian believers, because they worship a different Jesus, not the Jesus of the Bible. Most Christians will tell you that it is not possible to obey the words of Jesus Christ. They just believe in Jesus, a different Jesus. They do not know the real Jesus. The real Jesus did not promise us a good time, He did not promise us an easy life. The real Jesus was rejected. At one time even His own disciples wanted to leave Him, when He said to them:”If you do not eat my body and drink my blood you have no part in me,” and many people left Him, and He said to His own disciples:”Do you not also want to leave me?” And Peter said to Him:”Lord where will we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
The world was offended of Jesus and is still offended of Jesus Christ. The world will not follow Jesus. Most Christians will not follow Jesus. They just believe in a Jesus that does not exist. The real Jesus Christ is not attractive. The words of Jesus Christ are not pleasant, but they are the words of life, for those who obey them. But those who disobey and disregard the words of Jesus, will perish. Have you found the unattractive Jesus, the repulsive Jesus? Are you following Him or do you believe in an image of Jesus, a pleasant image. There’s nothing pleasant about following Jesus Christ, but those who endure with Him until the very end, they will win the prize of eternal life, those who stay with Him, those who are rejected with Him those who suffer with Him, they are worthy of entering His kingdom.
Are you following the real Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.
