Who Do You Say That I Am?
A Friend, A Guardian, And A Teacher
Jesus is a friend to me because I fell that I can relate to him. Many people feel a strong friendship with him as well. I believe that we feel this way because Jesus lived on earth with us and has experienced pain as we have. Some people might feel him as a friend because they believe Jesus might have been through the same experiences as them. Jesus is also a teacher not only for his preachings but also by the way he lived his life. We are to follow the ways Jesus lived his life and use it as an example for our own life. He has also taught us that God is a loving, caring and forgiving God and we should never fear or hid from him. Lastly, I see God as a guardian because he is always watching over us. I feel that God is always with me helping with everything i do and trying to lead me to make the right choices. The image I used for God as a guardian is of a woman figure. I used this because we have often been told that God can also be viewed as a woman or loving mother.
Jesus As A Friend
John 15:15I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
Jesus As A Teacher
And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
God As A Guardian
Genesis 1:27“Humankind was created as God’s reflection: in the divine image God created them; female and male, God made them."
