The Body of Christ

What do we know about Jesus? How tall he was, what was the complexion of his skin? What was his voice like? Was his weight? Did he feel insecure about his weight as some of us do?

One thing we know he did not look special. But he used his body for something special.

Jesus’ hands

Matthew 8:1-4

Reach out and touch all kinds of people. His hands made a difference in people’s lives. It’s important for us as disciples of Jesus to use our hands in similar

manner. Not to finger point, clinch our fists and so on.

What if someone filmed a documentary about your hands? What would it say?

The heart of Jesus

Luke 7:12-17

Jesus had the heart that felt the pain of others. There are so many people around us who are hurting. It’s important that we have the heart to help them.

Ephesians 2:1 we can help people by showing them the way out of sin.

Jesus’ eyes

Matthew 9:35-38

There are people who need God and a shepherd in their lives. Jesus had an ability to see the worst of people and see what they can become. Where’s my sight now? Do I look at the world the way Jesus looked at it?

God wants people to experience an abundant life. It cannot be found in the world. It can only be found in God.

Jesus’ mouth

What Jesus talked about the most?

Matthew 4:23

Acts 1:1-4

Jesus used his mouth to talk about Kingdom of God. He was passionate about his father and His Kingdom. Am I talking about the Kingdom of God? Am I passionate about my relationships with God?

Jesus used his body to influence the world
