How I Would “Label” Jesus


31 Days in My [Insert Label Here] Skin:

How I Would “Label” Jesus


“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” ― Mahatma Gandhi


I’ve heard it said that it is impossible to reject Jesus if you really looked at Him and His life and words and stories rather than looking to other (so-called) Christians and the ways in which they have either described or (mis)represented him.

I don’t know if this is true, but there does seem to be a lot of misinformation regarding who Jesus really want and what He really said and did.  For example, before I myself starting really digging into the Bible for myself I think I thought Jesus was:  Soft, a pushover, manipulatable, a jerk to women, pompous for calling himself “God,” or someone who merely promoted good, moral living. 

But then I read the Bible for myself and started realizing He was so very different than what I expected.  In reality, from what I can tell based on all I’ve read in the Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John (in the Bible),

Jesus was:



The Jesus I’ve met in the pages of Scripture— and in my own “real life”— is way more amazing, loving, bold, kind, and generous that I could have ever imagined.  I am so grateful that I have the honor of getting to know Him more for the rest of my life.  I don’t think it is possible to ever get to the bottom of Him.  He will continue to astound me and teach me and grow me every single day.

Thank You, Lord.

What about you?

How would you describe Jesus?  How is the real Jesus— the one in the Bible— different from what you may have heard before you ever started reading the Bible for yourself?
