Proclaim the Truth, Defend the Truth, Live the Truth

Character of Jesus Christ

Our scripture says, in Romans 3:23 For everyone has sinned. It means, there is no one on the face of the earth is Holy. It is completely impossible for human to live life without sin. Then how Jesus couldn’t do any sin? How could Jesus holy? He was also a man. If Jesus only a man, he must sinned and he shouldn’t holy. But Jesus never sinned and Jesus was/is holy. It’s because Jesus was incarnated God.(www.whatthebibleteaches.com).

As per our scripture, only the God can be holy. God says in

because I am holy.

if God is holy, how can a man similar to the God?

Isaiah 42:8
I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not give my glory to anyone else, nor share my praise with carved idols.

It means, no one can compete with God.

Love of Jesus Christ

Jesus loves us and that’s why he came down to the earth and sacrifice himself for our salvation. Jesus always loved human, even when he was crucified, he prayed for them who have crucified him. This is the love of Christ for us, the love for the Church.

• Jesus’ Love for human

God loves us, and that’s why he gave his only begotten son.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Romans 8:3
Life Through For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh
There was no any reason for Jesus to gave up his life, but it was his love for church. A good shepherd never think to give his life to save his sheep. And Jesus is a good shepherd.

Ephesians 5:25
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

John 10:11
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

Jesus loves every human being individually. Because we are creation of his hands.

Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Jesus loves his own and the people who are chosen by God.

John 13:1
It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.

I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.

Jesus showed his disciples, how to love each other? Because Jesus did not come to be serve. That’s why he showed a great example to his disciple.

John 13:12

When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them.

Matthew 20:28
Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Jesus loves his lost people, he never want anyone go in to the everlasting death. He showed always compaction and feelings to his lost people. Even he prayed for those people who persecute him.

John 5:40
yet you refuse to come to me to have life.

Luke 19:41-42
As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing.

Luke 23:34
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

Luke 22:51
But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And he touched the man’s ear and healed him.

It was his love, when lost sheep found, Jesus rejoiced. Because Jesus came to save the lost.

Jesus Christ loves the vilest sinner as truly as He loves the purest saint, but He does not love the vilest sinner in the same way that He loves the purest saint. His love to the sinner is one thing; His love to the obedient disciple quite another. Toward the one He has pity, in the other He takes pleasure. There is an attraction in both cases. In the one case it is the attraction of need appealing to compassion; in the other case it is the attraction of beauty appealing to appreciation and delight. Christ pities the sinner; He delights in the saint. He loves them both. In the parable of the lost sheep we see that the attraction of need is the greater. (www.whatthebibleteaches.com)

Luke 15:5-7
I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

2 Corinthians 8:9
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

Jesus Christ always loves those who love him and obey His commandments. Definitely, as human we can fall down to sin, but Jesus’ commandments work as armors. They never fall us to the death. His commandments bring us back to the way where we fell.

John 15:9
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.

• Jesus’ Love for God Father

John 14:31
but the world must learn that I love the Father and that I do exactly what my Father has commanded me.

John 14:21
Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.

Luke 2:49
"Why were you searching for me?" he asked. "Didn't you know I had to be in my Father's house?"

John 4:34
"My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work."

Jesus came down to the earth, to fulfill the Father’s will. Because of the Father’s will he became a man and choose a sacrificial death on the cross.

John 6:38
For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.

Jesus always seeking the Father’s will and did all the things which were pleasing to the Father.

John 5:30
By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.

John 8:29
The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him

Jesus loved the Father and that’s why he wanted to finish the work which was given by him. And that work was, to scarify himself. It was the love for the Father which bring Jesus to the cross, because it was Father’s will.

John 17:4
I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.

John 19:30
When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Jesus taught the people to love the God because he loves.

Matthew 22:37-38
Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.

• Compassion of Jesus Christ

Compassion is a human nature. Every man compassion sometime, somewhere. So, as a human, Jesus compassioned.

Jesus Christ had compassion on the people who were distressed and hungry. They were like sheep without a shepherd.
