If you’re looking for the real Jesus don’t just look in the Gospels. Jesus was beautiful in the Gospels, but he was not yet perfected in the Gospels. If you’re looking for the real Jesus, open your heart to love, and then imagine the most loving person you can imagine and then look up to the sky and say, “Jesus please show me the real you.” For Jesus is pure love in human form. 1 Corinthians 13 closely approximates the real Jesus, but this Pericope below which is a combination of 1 Corinthians 13 and original thought also approximates him to some degree.
Jesus is love. Jesus loves you more than you love your self. Jesus receives your worship and praise, not because he needs it, but because he knows that it is what you are created to do. Jesus judges nothing about you, but he loves you exactly as you are. Jesus will correct you, but it is always for your good. Jesus knows all things. Jesus believes all things. Jesus believes in you more than you believe in yourself. Jesus always serves. Jesus always protects. Jesus enjoys religions and viewpoints that do not believe in him as Lord and Savior, as he loves diversity and is not intimidated by those who do not see him in his fullness. Jesus loves all creation. Jesus redeems all things. Jesus comforts all people. Jesus rejoices not in suffering, but Jesus rejoices in your joy. Jesus always reminds you of the best about yourself. Jesus always understands . Jesus never fails. Jesus will ensure that you make it to eternal wholeness and happiness. Jesus died and rose to guarantee you an eventual place of rest with God. Jesus is Love.
