Jesus gets us the Ad says
Emphasis on the US you see.
Are you kidding me?!
He gets us?!
How about coming to JESUS in faith for deliverance — so we Get HIM?
How about we (US) take the focus from ourselves and focus on HIM as The GOD He is?
The GOD Who if HE does not transform us from sinners to Saints, we will not enter His Heaven.
Here’s the goal of He gets us.com.
“The main goal is just to increase the respect and the personal relevancy of Jesus,” said Vanderground.”
By the way, the budget for this campaign is 100 Million Dollars.
Further, they say:
“Though we believe he was what Christians call fully God and fully man, that may not be what you believe. We’re simply inviting you to explore with us at He Gets Us how might things be different if more people followed his example. So, look at this as an open invitation to engage and learn more. We’re also here to support and listen to you. Connect with us here and via social media.”
This is as close as they get on their web page to identifying Him as GOD.
And did you notice the wording he was?
How about HE IS?!
Their focus is His humanity. And I LOVE His humanity.
I LOVE that He gets what it is to be human BUT He did not come here to identify with MY humanity.
He knows people are under a DEATH SENTENCE and it is the CAUSE of the death sentence He came to address.
Indeed He is 100% man, perfect man, and 100% GOD.
Were He not fully GOD, just being the only fully perfect man would still not transform any of us from the fallen humans we were born.
He did not come here so He could identify with our political views or to fix the social injustices of this society.
He did not come here so people could follow His example or His teachings and make this world a better place. (Albeit, obedient Disciples of JESUS do improve social conditions by their very presence in society.)
He came here so we could find our identity IN HIM.
Scripture link and I strongly suggest you read these verses in context.
We can try to identify with what happened to Him in His humanity all day long but until we bow before Him as GOD ALMIGHTY, we will stay in our sins – continuing to practice them without any hope of deliverance and certainly No forgiveness.
JESUS gets us.
Indeed He does. He knows every sin we have committed and He will be giving NO ONE a free pass.
So instead of preaching JESUS gets us, preach do we get JESUS?
Do you (we) GET Who HE IS?
Do you (we) GET who we ARE without HIM?
Am I saying nothing good at all can come from this campaign?
No. I am not willing to go that far because when any man, woman, or child picks up a Bible to read in context with a truth-seeking mind, GOD will meet them on those pages — not a sympathetic, soft, JESUS but the HOLY, AWESOME GOD Who LOVES them AND is willing to save them from their sins, death, hell, and the grave.
He has a new nature (see 2 Corinthians 5:17 and Galatians 6:15) for us because propping up our old nature is not only futile, it’s impossible.
