What I Love About Jesus


What I love about Jesus...He puts me in my place. When I read in the Gospels what Jesus did and what He said, my heart grows wings.

Jesus liberated women. He set them free to be real. When Jesus walked the earth, women had little status. There were cultural restrictions on male and female interactions. Jesus spoke to the Samaritan woman at the well. He spoke truths that set her free and gave her wings. She was given a voice to speak those truths to the inhabitants of her city. She was privileged to invite others to, "Come, see a man!" All because "the man-Jesus" saw her. He put her in her place. He gave her a voice. He gave her wings! I love that about Jesus. (To read the biblical account referenced here, see John 4.)
