Who is Jesus?

A description of Jesus:

"Yes, Jesus smiled; yes, Jesus laughed. Jesus smiled wider and laughed heartier than any human being who has ever walked the planet. He was young. He radiated good cheer. The real Jesus was a man of such merriment, such gladness of heart, such freedom and openness, that He proved irresistible. He became known through Galilee for His genuine strength, the sparkle in His eyes, the spring in His gait, the heartiness in His laugh, the genuineness of His touch; His passion, playfulness, excitement, and vitality: His JOY! He made a dazzling display of love. He set hearts afire. He was an elated, triumphant young man with an incredible quality of life . . . so different from the solemn religious types He constantly encountered." from "Jesus Man of Joy"- Great book and it's online!

Another description:

And standing in the middle of the lampstands was someone like the Son of Man. He was wearing a long robe with a gold sash across his chest. His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire. His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and his voice thundered like mighty ocean waves. He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp two-edged sword came from his mouth. And his face was like the sun in all its brilliance. - Revelation 1:13-16


Do either of these descriptions fit the image/character/personality that you have in mind of Jesus?

  2. That's awesome. I love the picture of Him as a man of joy. It wasn't until this year that I REALLY started to realize that. It never fit my description of Him. I love it. And having more reverence for His name; I want more of that. Fearing the Lord to the point that I don't fear man and what he says about me. It is for freedom that Christ set us free.

    Thanks for writing this.
