Posts Tagged ‘misconception’

A common misconception about Jesus is that He wants to control us. Few things could be further from the truth, if that were true He would have set it up that way in the beginning. What’s sad about this fallacy for one is that it’s a big reason many choose not to know Him and secondly that many others, though well intentioned believe they are being Christ like by trying to control. That’s not who He is or what He wants from us, in fact what He wants is nothing more than to love us as the individuals He made us to be, to be loved in return and to literally walk through each and every day with us, good times and bad.

Scripture says that, “when He appears we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him like He is.” Who could refuse Jesus if they could see Him as He really is? The misconceptions of Him are easy to turn from and unfortunately those misconceptions often come from us, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We can really know Him and the closer we get the more like Him we become and through us the world can see the genuine Jesus.
