Ever think about what "your" Jesus looks like. I mean your personal thoughts about what He looks like. What color is your Jesus? Also what is your Jesus like in your viewpoint. Sure, it is easy to say that the answer is in the Bible, but in actuality everyone has a Jesus that they think that He is like. Granted it quite possibly will not be as the actual Jesus of Scripture.

"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." - Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi
What I am asking is are you making a Jesus of your own design? Is he a political rebel, bent on helping you achieve national independence? Is he a Social reformer, who's main ideal is to refashion society into something more lasting and perfect? Is he a Universal expression of Love, something that no man will (or shall) reject in the end? Is Jesus an outlaw -- a peacemaker -- a troublemaker upsetting the sellers / buyers at the temple -- a psychological pitchman intent on making you feel better about yourself?

Is your Jesus real? Or is He a god you have built that you can be comfortable with.

There is but one God. There is but one Christ. and you must --- MUST ---- accept him for who he is in full, not cutting away what you don't like and accepting the leftovers.

John 4:23Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
