What misperceptions do we have of Jesus?
I must reiterate that the title of this sermon is not meant to offend, but it is meant to shock us a little and cause us to reconsider some of the longstanding ideas that we have held about Jesus. We often see Jesus more as a nanny than a strong man, but we want to challenge that notion. Jesus was soft, He also wasn’t a pushover or someone who men didn’t look up to. On the contrary, Jesus was someone that men did look up to and he possessed qualities that we should all aspire to. They are qualities we often look up to in our heroes and they go a lot deeper than the gentle Jesus we heard about as children.
In This Sermon
We are going to take a look at how Jesus was like…
A firefighter rushing into a burning building to save those who are inside.
A defiant prisoner of war who would not give his captors the privilege of breaking.
A marine jumping on a grenade to save the lives of those around them.
