The Teachings of Jesus
This is a summary of the Words of Jesus.
You will see that Jesus wants us, to be: humble, meek, gentle, non-violent, and totally trust in God.
Jesus wants us to Love everyone, with a forgiving, merciful Love.
And Jesus wants us to see our oneness with Him.
(1) Meekness and Humility
Mt 5 - Blessed are the meek
Mt 6 - Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth….. But lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven.
Mt 18 - Whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in
the Kingdom of Heaven.
Mt 20 - whoever desires to be great…let him be a servant. Just as the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve.
Mt 22 - He who is greatest among you shall be your servant….. He who humbles himself will be exalted.
Being Meek and Humble, reveals inner spiritual strength.
Those who are outwardly: proud, arrogant and violent, are actually spiritually weak…within.
Mt 5 - I tell you not to resist an evil person, but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.
Mt 10 - Do not fear them…
Mt 14 - Do not be afraid…
When we trust in the divine care of God, we are not afraid. We know that God Loves us. We do not have to worry, because God is our protection. And when we trust completely in God, even in the face of violence, we are showing great inner Faith.
We may suffer, in this world, at the hands of the violent, yet we know that our future is secure. We know that we have eternal life in Heaven. We would rather be harmless and non-violent, even if it means temporary pain or suffering, than violent to others. Because we know that Love will win the hearts and minds of others, rather than violence.
When we show others compassion and love…..even when they hate harm, hit or persecute us….we are affecting them in a great way.
Love is the only way to win the hearts of others. Love is the only way to change others.
When we follow the ways of Love, which means non-violence, then we can make a difference in the world. Our lives will not be in vain. Others will be affected by our lives, in a positive way.
Let Love be our guiding force. Let our Faith be in the ways of Love. We know God is Love. And when we trust in Love we are Trusting in God. When we show Love…. we show God.
Let us have complete trust in God’s Infinite Love.…and teach the world, by the lives we live….and our actions….and we will help change the world. Violence will only perpetuate more violence. In order to break the cycle of violence, we have to be non-violent. Our gentle example of Goodness and Love…… is the way to live.
Mt 10 - you will be hated….for My Name’s sake
Jn 17 - the world has hated them…because they are not of the world……just as I AM not of the world.
(4) Anger, Judging or Condemnation
Mt 6 - Judge not……condemn not.
Lk 6 - Judge not, and you shall not be Judged, Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned.
Mt 6 - if you forgive……you will be forgiven
Jn 20 - If you forgive the sins of any……they are forgiven them.
(6) Loving Others
Mt 22 - Love your neighbor as yourself.
Lk 7 - Her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she Loved Much.
Jn 13 - Love one another……as I have Loved you.
Jn 15 - This is My Commandment…that you Love one another…as I have Loved you.
(7) Believing That God Loves You
Mt 11 - Come to me….all you who labor and are heavy laden…and I will give you rest
Jn 17 - That the Love with which You Loved Me..…may be in them ….…and I in Them.
