So what do you think about God and Jesus? Is our Heavenly Father mad at us? Did Jesus express God’s anger at people wherever he went? Or did he instead heal and make whole everyone who came to Him?
Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise. John 5:19 (NRSV)
Some people may say that Jesus was our loving healer in this present age, but in the age to come, He will return to punish sinners. In other words, His grace towards us is limited to our current life. Once we die, there are no more “second chances.”
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 (NRSV)
What if His grace towards even the worst of the worst extends beyond death? What if even in death, He can open spiritually blind eyes and restore spiritually crippled hearts? This, I believe, is Real Life Jesus.
