I was involved in a small group ministry for many years, and we would spend a good part of a small group session looking at various pictures of Jesus and asking which one resonated in your heart. I am aware of how almost everyone has an image of Jesus, shaped from their childhood story.
When I looked at this post recently, I had a feeling in my heart of the Jesus that resonated in my soul. I find it fascinating how culture has reshaped and shaped us at every level. Perhaps this is what happens, but I am more convicted all the time that as responsible and mature adults, we must engage the forces that shape our perceptions and beliefs and be discerning and honest about the impact of those forces.
How I would love to dialogue with you…
Blessed be His name!
