Three Reasons Jesus Was A Revolutionary

You deserve to live abundantly. Jesus was all about creating change where there was oppression and injustice. Here are three examples of how he pursued liberation despite the risk.

Three Reasons Jesus Was A Revolutionary

Jesus didn't play about the people. He was in the trenches, walking with people everyone else considered sinners, breaking all the rules, and seeking justice. Here are three ways Jesus was a revolutionary. 

Jesus Preached Love And Inclusivity 

He was called a "friend of sinners" because he showed compassion to all people, especially the oppressed and the social outcasts. 

Jesus befriended the oppressed, disabled, and poor because he knew he was meant to serve the people: "Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."  Matthew 20:28

Jesus Challenged The Status Quo

"Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow." (Isaiah 1:17). Jesus wasn't just about defending those oppressed; he sought to dismantle oppression. 

Black theology encourages us to follow Christ's example as a liberator who actively worked against systems of inequality rather than accepting them. 

Jesus Built Spirits Rather Than Riches

Jesus preached about committing to a godly life of spiritual wealth over accumulating riches. He knew "life wasn't measured by how much you own" (Luke 12:15) and instead encouraged to "sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven." 

"Business as usual" wasn't Jesus' M.O. He leaned into faith and love to effect necessary change, and we're called to do the same.
