    10 Things Every Christian Should Know About Jesus

    Ladies, to love Jesus is to know as much about Him as possible. But what does that mean? Knowing about Jesus means more than just knowing that He is the son of God and that He is God.

    Once you, as a Christian, know about Jesus, you can truly have a relationship with Him, because in doing so, you have a better understanding about Him and what is expected of you. The following is a list of 10 things every Christian should know about Jesus. Of course, they’re not the only things you should know about Him, but they’re a good start for building a relationship with Him. And they should also prompt you to learn more!

    1. He loves you unconditionally. No matter who you are or what you have done, good or bad, He loves you. And that love is never-ending. No one will ever love you more than He does!
    2. He died for you. I know that most Christians know this, but to really know it is to understand the sacrifices that went into this amazing act. God sacrificing His son. Jesus sacrificing Himself. Not to mention the pain that He felt. All to carry the burdens of your sins.
    3. He wants the best for you. God has good intentions when He creates each and every one of us. He plans for our welfare and our righteousness. It’s usually our free will that takes us in a different direction.
    4. He wants to be a part of your life. He wants you to take Him with you on your journey through life. Not just when things are good, but also when they are bad. He wants you to take Him with you through prayer, praise and glorification, in everything that you say and do.
    5. He wants to be #1. Above everything else! Nothing should be more important than Him. Nothing and no one should come before Him.
    6. He has high expectations of you. Jesus often referred to keeping His and His Father’s commandments. So He does expect that you behave a certain way. What is right and what is wrong have been laid out in scripture, and we do have a responsibility to follow those commandments! But it’s not easy. Jesus knows it’s not easy…without Him. Jesus wants you to rely on Him to help you keep those commandments, hence #4, above. He needs to be a part of your life always.
    7. He wants you to do good. Scripture reveals many examples of good deeds, from the good Samaritan to the poor widow’s offering. Good deeds alone aren’t going to get you to heaven, but they were obviously important enough for Jesus to continually point them out!
    8. He’s not a pushover. Do you remember Jesus turning tables over in the temple courts? Or when Jesus became angry when His disciples were afraid of the storm? Jesus is compassionate and loving, but He wants you to take Him seriously. What does that mean? To believe in Him.
    9. He can’t make you follow Him. We were created with free will. And even though everything is possible with God, He won’t make you follow Him. His arms are open; it’s up to you whether you choose Him or not.
    10. Life is easier with Him in it. Life is not going to be easy. But scripture tells us over and over that with Jesus in it, we are stronger.

    Ladies, did you know these things about Jesus? What do you think of this list?

    1. I must say that I disagree with number 4. Jesus does not want to be a PART of your life. Jesus should BE YOUR LIFE. You should not make time for Jesus in the midst of your daily life. You should have to make time for other things because Jesus is your life and everything you do should revolve around Christ.

    2. Some good points noted in this article. However it would have been better if Bible texts/ verses are included to support each item. Jesus left most of his teachings in the Bible, that’s why quoting verses on what he said or what was said about Him from the Bible is the only way to know more about Him.

      I’d like to shed what I’ve learned from the Bible regarding item Number 1:
      Remember Judas Iscariot? Does that mean He loves him unconditionally? Read Matthew 26:24.
      And also read Matthew 7:21 and Matthew 15:8,9. Jesus points out something worthwhile.

      What the Bible says about item Number 5 is at John 14:28. Jesus certainly points out otherwise.
      Philippians 2:5 and 6 also supports this.

      Most people think that Jesus is God himself but this is not what the Bible tells us.
      But 1 John 4:12 says no one has seen God. (pertaining to seeing God in the flesh)
      John 1:18 and John 6:46 says only Jesus have seen Him. This only means that God the Father and Jesus is not one and the same.

      1 John 5: 1-5 says that believing Jesus is the Son of God means following God’s commandments, because Jesus said in John 12:49 that he have not spoken of his own initiative, but the Father who sent Him has given Him a commandment about what to say and what to speak.

      Being Christian, we must first truly know the difference between Jesus and His Father, the God Almighty.

      Before replying to this please make sure you’ve read the Bible verses.

    3. I agree with 10. When you decide to choose to accept Jesus as your personal savior life doesnt get easier, instead it gets harder. Take a look at Jesus’ life when He was on earth. He faced persecution, betrayal, denial, pain etc. However when we have Jesus in our lives, we are able to get through whatever hardships and trails He gives us because we are able to depend on His steadfast love, His unchanging faithfulness, and His unfailing strength. Trials and challenges are what help our faith to become more mature and sturdy because we soon become more reliant on God. If you meet any strong Christians im pretty sure they’ve been through difficult hardships. And the cliche phrase: What doesnt kill you makes you stronger!
