In the Bible, there was a very influential figure that made great change throughout the New Testament. Furthermore, this man continues to make great change without a physical form to look up to. A man who questioned the morals of the time and challenged people to think how they were spending their lives. This man’s name is Jesus, the Son of God. Throughout this essay, we will be talking about who the Son of God is. Why he was taken, imprisoned and eventually crucified. To further, elaborate, the next subject that will be discussed is why Jesus, rose from the grave, beating death and showing us that there was a better way to live.
As well as that, the significance and importance of him returning to this world we have been graciously been given. To show us the way to Heaven and reap all that has been sown. As for how this affects me. This greatly influences my wellbeing and me. As a Christian, I believe that all that has been told has come to pass and what has been foretold shall come into being. Therefore, as I am a Christian, it affects the way I live, the way I interact with others and the way I see events that have occurred and or are occurring. Jesus was known by many titles. Perhaps one of his most notorious being, The Son of God. He was God in human form. The Father’s Son come down from Heaven to rid us of our sins. As said in John 14:6 by Jesus himself. 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Jesus, the way and the truth and the life. He was made to be the ultimate sacrifice for all our sins.
Furthermore, he was also a man that by his peers was greatly respected. Known as The Son of God who made the lame walk and blind see. The man who walked on the water belonging to a storm that frightened everybody else. He without fear took his steps forward. However, although he was The Son of God, he without a second thought washed his Disciples feet. Teaching them in John 13:12-17. 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. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. Jesus was a man who just like any other ate, slept and aged.
He apart of The Holy Trinity was the pathway Heaven and all its riches. The pathway, to God. In other words, through Christ, anything is achievable. Why was he sent down to do this task though? Humanity was separated from God and through God sending his son Jesus to this earth made way for all humanity to have full access to relationship with God, eternity, grace and His love. Through Jesus taking the worlds sin upon his body, dying on the cross for all humanity, he payed to cost of sin so that we could be free. Three days later, the same man who had been crucified upon the cross, paying for our sins, rose again. By the Father’s hand, Jesus The Son of God rose from the dead. Beating death itself, He demonstrated that through God, all was possible. Even death itself could not hold the God back.
The grave held no bars against Christ Eternal. This was demonstrated when Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to go see Jesus’s body However, as said in Mark 28:5-7. 5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” He although put in a tomb after death with a boulder closing the entrance still broke from death’s hands. He rose from death and told his disciples the good news. However, Jesus’s ascension to Heaven was not the end. In the Bible, it talks about the second coming. One where the gates of Heaven shall open to all of those that await him. In Hebrews 9:28 it says, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. In other words, those who have been faithful await Jesus and his second coming. However, those who have not await a different fate. One that is described in John 5:28-29.
“Do not be astonished at this; for the hour is coming when all who are in their graves will hear His voice and will come out—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.” It sates clearly that those who have done evil have their fate written. One, of damnation. As for how Jesus’s death and resurrection affects me. As I said earlier, I as a Christian believe that Jesus Christ, The Son of God died and was resurrected on the third day. I believe that he through the cross, gave us the key to unlock the door to all the wonders that awaits us in Heaven. I believe that when that curtain in the temple tore in two, that split second. I believe that that is when Jesus Christ opened the doorway to Heaven and sacrificed himself for our misdoings. Said in Mark 15:37:38, 37 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last. 38 The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. All of this affects the way I live and treat others. Living by the two rules Jesus told us in Mathew 22:36-40. 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. As a Christian, I was instructed to live by these two rules and so I try my best to live by these two rules. This is how Christ Eternal’s crucifixion and resurrection affect me. How I live and what I do with my God given life.
