Who is Jesus? Jesus is the son of God and the Virgin Mary, the way to peace and happiness, not only but also the one who saved us from evil and sins. The bible says that If we believe in him we shall not perish but have everlasting life. In his short time on earth he turned water into wine, healed, walked on water and more. He was sold by Judas to the Romans. He was whipped, stoned, and nailed to the cross among with two robbers who would be crucified along with him. Jesus had told everyone that he would rise again within 3 days which would have been on a Sunday, as we know is called Easter.
It could be ascertained that there are significant differences among the accounts narrated in the above passages. But nevertheless, their similarities and differences combine to give a credible overview of Jesus’ earlier Galilean Ministry.
The life and teachings of Jesus Christ call us to work for justice, peace and human rights. In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus describes this mission in the following way:
Before the gospels and Pauline epistles, early church Christians related to the Old Testament as Scripture and viewed their Christian walk as the fulfillment of the promises made to Israel from the Old Testament, which foretold of the coming age of the Messiah. The first New Testament Christians understood the importance of the Old Testament; it was their “Bible” they preached from. Just as in the early church, Christians today need the Old Testament for preaching and in which to reference and understand Christ’s purpose for why he came.
With the proclamation of the Kingdom of God, Jesus seeks to bring about God’s plan for humanity through physical, spiritual, and social healing. His purpose and mission is to prepare the hearts and minds of the people so they can build new lives in God’s kingdom. Jesus often uses stories to illustrate his message
The mission of the early church included a number of things. Some of these were to communicate and spread the news that Jesus was the Messiah and the son of God, to propose a new way of life to those who believe in God and to inspire more people to become a part of the Christian community.
Jesus ministry was to save mankind from their sins, to destroy the works of the devil and to fulfill the Old Testament. Luke 19:10 tells us that the Son of man has come to seek and save that which was lost.
Could you ever imagine sending your child on a field trip knowing that end purpose was for them to die? GOD sent his only son, Jesus Christ, to earth ultimately for this trip. Desire coming from the flesh of a woman, Jesus Christ is GOD's son. Jesus walked the earth to teach us about his father and how he wished for us to live, so that our souls would be clean in order to reach the pearly gates of heaven.
“For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me” (John 6:38). God sent Jesus to earth to help others follow the path to Christ and to save the sinners. Like Rama, Jesus was also viewed as the perfect man. Thus causing Jesus walk the righteous path and allow others to walk with him.
My purpose in life is to be a living sacrifice to my Lord, who gave His life for me so that I might live on purpose for His purpose and others. My personal mission in life is to continue to learn to walk with Christ so that I can walk like Christ. And, to know Him in a more personal way as Apostle Paul stated in Phil. 3:10 (KJV), “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;”
God 's mission in the world. For me as a pastor, I enter into this mission field through the local church, but not exclusively based in the local church, but constantly reaching out to near and distant neighbors. This definition is a simple introduction to the concept of “missio Dei” which is basically saying that the work or mission of the church is a part of the work of God in the world, rather than something with an independent disposition. The overwhelming motive for mission is the compassion and love of God for his creation and the telos of mission is the Kingdom, the reign of God over his people.
The ultimate purpose for a Christian is “Union with God” (Brodd et. al, 2016, p.404). In the words of Augustine “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find rest in you” (Brodd et. al, 2016, p.463). In order to reunite with God, Christians believe that you can achieve this through Jesus Christ (Brodd, 2016). Jesus was born in Bethlehem and spent his childhood in Nazareth. When he was thirty years old, he went through the Judean wilderness where he was baptized by John the Baptist in the River Jordan (Brodd, 2016). After his baptism, Jesus began his own religion that only lasted for a few years (Brodd, 2016.) He traveled all through Galilee
In this teaching, Jesus was saying that we treat one another with love and compassion as he have loved us as much as laying his life for our sake, in order for us to join him in the kingdom of God. He said that we should speak well even to those who curse and despitefully use us and abuse us because, our reward for such time is in heaven and it is God who will revenge about these things for us. He said that we should love our enemy also not only our friends because God loves us the same way and God does not discriminate from anyone, despite their falls.
