WHAT IS JESUS LIKE?
He has an immense, immeasurable and eternal compassion.
His compassion is always greater than our sin.
He is scandalously forgiving.
His mercy burns as it destroys shame.
He has unbounded patience, unending goodness.
His love is so compelling it heals us.
It strips away all our pretense and restores us to happiness.
His grace is the empowering presence within
that enables us to feel good about ourselves.
His mercy is his total favor given gladly to the undeserving heart.
He is the kindest person I have ever known.
His goodness is so outrageous and shocking
that it is disreputable to the religious minded.
He is the happiest person I know;
he has the happiest disposition of anybody you will ever meet.
He is enthusiastically fervent in his pursuit of us.
He is amazingly humble and gentle
but he is also a powerful warrior king who loves to fight
and who laughs at his enemies.
He has a fabulous servant spirit, needing no title, status or position,
but he joyfully sets an example of simple heartwarming slavery.
