A PERFECT JESUS SHOWING HUMAN EMOTIONS

Jesus was perfect, but he was not afraid to show emotions. He was angry just like you would sometimes.

John 2:13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.

He must have been really angry to react like that.

Jesus was deeply troubled and angry.

John 11:33 When Jesus saw Mary weeping, and saw the other people wailing with her, a deep anger welled up within him, and [he was deeply troubled]

34 Jesus asked where they have put Lazarus, and they showed him.

35 Jesus wept.

The shortest verse in the bible showed our perfect Lord wept in the presence of others, he was surely not ashamed to show emotions of how he was feeling.

He was afraid like you and I would sometimes. On the cross he asked God to let the cup of death pass him by, but he said let your will not mine be done.

Luke 22:42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

As followers of Christ, he became human like us and felt all we feel. He went through all the emotions we go through and in the time of deep fear he cried to the Father in distress.

We can learn from him that being perfect does not mean we do not have or show emotions, if Christ was fine with it, so should we.

The same power in him that conquered the grave and cheated death lives in us, Jesus left us the Holy Spirit to enable us conquer whatever difficulties we are facing, and he paid the price for us on the cross as he said it is finished.

I will keep this as my focus at all time.

Remain blessed.
