jesus the terrifying!? – march 17

Reading: Matthew 8: Highlighted reading: Matthew 8:23-34

I wonder what type of Jesus I portray to others? I always want to avoid the gentle Jesus meek and mild but do I replace that with a loving caring forgiving Jesus: never offended, somehow friendly and compassionate. Of course we do see that in the way he deals with people – but to only portray that side would be false

Matthew contrasst the compassionate Jesus healing people with the frightening Jesus who people beg to leave then alone. When was the last time my picture of God was so awesome that I felt uncomfortable in his presence?
