Who Is Jesus?

It’s Pay Day and the Black family are hitting Belfast to celebrate. Adam wants a haircut (he’s sooooooo fussy about his hair), Hannah wants to get her eyebrows threaded (I don’t even know what this entails but I hear it’s very painful) and Rebecca (who I have just asked) needs stationary for going back to school. She has also informed me that she wants to find £1,000,000. She doesn’t want much.

I write quite a bit about my faith on this blog and, whilst my style is not to ram it down people’s throats, at the heart of it is putting across a message as to how it has changed my life and rescued me from addiction, depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The blog has given me the confidence to write more and I am now at the point where I am plotting my first novel which will feature the above themes.

The ultimate pay day was when Jesus paid for the sins of mankind on the Cross. My thoughts on Jesus and what he has done for me are clear for all to see but in this mini-blog I wanted to hear your thoughts. What does Jesus mean to you. Is he the Son of God? Your Lord and Saviour? A great prophet? A holy man? An inspirational teacher? A fraud? Or a make believe character created to control the masses? Did he even exist? 

What does Jesus mean to you?

I would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. He is with me and loves me unconditionally; and God will always be with me. I didn’t find God until recently when I watched “The Shack”, to be honest. I had an idea of him but it never sank in… believing is why I am still alive today. I believe God is the creator of what is or what will be; but we have free will to make our decisions. Judgement free, because unless you are God, then who are you to judge ❤️🙏🏻💫❤️
    This has inspired a post that I want to write, now!!!!

  2. Jesus was God who emptied himself to become flesh, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, rose from the dead and offers forgiveness of sins, eternal life and relationship with the God the Father as sons and daughters.

  3. If i am honest im not sure whether i believe in God or not? I sometimes wonder with all the sadness and horror in the world whether he does exist? If he does why let all these things happen? Great thought provoking blog again.

  4. I have always been close to God but struggled to relate to Jesus because he was quite a stranger to me. Now I pray for him when I need positive energy, I see him as a protector, almost like a protective angel or spirit. x

  5. I am amazed at how much you and I have in common. My mouth hung open when I read this, as I have been feeling the same way as of late, struggling for words to express the joy, hope and salvation I have found in Jesus (my Lord and Savior) has changed my entire life around and when I look back at what He overcame to pay for my sins, how he never left me through anorexia, child abuse, child of alcoholics, divorce, alcoholism, cancer, anorexia/bulimia, depression, anxiety, OCD, Lyme disease and drug addiction. My CPTSD is under control. I quit working two years ago because I was triggered constantly, and the stress of the situation made me very ill, combined with Lyme symptoms. I was exhausted and unhinged. I grabbed Jesus’ hand ten years ago, when I first became sober, on a mountain trail in 2 feet of snow. I went down on my knees and confessed every sin, and asked for forgiveness. I often feel at a loss for words to describe my gratitude-but the Prince of Peace knows my heart. I am now looking forward to volunteering in a local hospital in the Emergency Room. I have a tribe I can trust, and who love me for who I am, despite my illness. My husband and I suffered true hardship and pain in our marriage, but now we are like two little kids in love. We have a roof over our head, and the bills are paid because God blessed him with a new position that doubled his salary. I laugh with Jesus, cry with Jesus……..but most of all, I cling to Jesus.

  6. Jesus is the love of my life! Although I was saved at 8 years old, I was molested, lived promiscuously, became a pregnant unwed teen, a single mom, and found it hard to stay out of a relationship to wait until I was married. When I fell fully in love with Christ as an adult, the Holy Spirit started giving me strength, insight, and the best relationship I have ever had in my life. He is the Love of my life! ❤

  7. Jesus is the motivation to live my life in abundance and share his compassion for others. Being a Christian doesn’t fix everything but provides hope and love, even in our darkest days. He brings us forth like gold and uses us to minister to others based on our journey. I agree with the comment above about clinging to Jesus. I have a friend who has struggled with a lot of issues but she always clings to the cross even if it is only by her fingernails! May God bless you in this new undertaking of a book!

  8. I believe our individual understanding of his teachings and life are more important than what we often hear from religious groups. I am sure he is the son of God just as much as we are all as well. After all we were created in Gods image. Our role with God is what I focus my attention on.
