What if for every person you ever encountered? ..... Every person, You saw Jesus first.

Updated on May 22, 2017

Every Person

He is in us each and every day.

What if in every situation and every person you ever encountered you saw Jesus first? What a world this would indeed be. So very much better and so much more love. Perhaps we would truly be able to love our neighbor. It would be indeed easy to do so. There would be no strife in life. The world would certainly be a much better place. Everything would be done out of love. If we saw Christ in each and every person we would in turn treat them with love and respect. In essence we would be putting our best version of ourselves out there for the world to interact with. There would be no need for war or malice or murder or any violence for that matter. There would be no hurting another only loving another. Helping another would become commonplace. There would be no need for jealousy, avarice or greed. If you saw someone in despair or a desperate situation you would automatically come to their aid. It would be the most natural thing in the world because you would see Jesus before you saw anything else or anyone else. We would not see each other in regards to race, color, age, socio economic status or any other characteristic or demographic. We would only see their heart and not a single thing more. We would see the heart of Jesus in every person. That would be all that matters. It would be the only important thing. It would be a truly awesome thing. Seemingly we would actually see His heart in each and every person. The world would be entirely different than what it is and has become. You would not just walk by that bum on the street. You would probably make sure he had something to eat, was warm and had a safe place to shelter himself. You would actually care about the wellness of another. We would try to make a difference in a person's life and in essence would try to emulate the person that Jesus wants us to be or at least strive to be. Our motto would be what would Jesus do and in essence what would Jesus have me do. We would not criticize each other or have anything at all to say negative or hurtful about another. We would open our heart to all and in turn we would open our hearts. We would forgive everyone for everything. What an incredibly different world we would indeed have if we saw Jesus first. Contemplate how God would have us treat each other. I, for one, truly believe that that is what God has in mind for us. Here are some verses on who God wants us to be and how He wants us to treat one another:

Micah 6:8 He has shown you O man what is good. And what does the Lord require of you. But to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control. Against which there is no law.

Phillipians 2:4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

Ephesians 4:32 And be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

Luke 10:25 And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 He said to him, “What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?

27 So he answered and said, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’[a] and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’”[b]

28 And He said to him, “You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.”

29 But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

30 Then Jesus answered and said: “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 On the next day, when he departed,[c] he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ 36 So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?”

37 And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.”

Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

God bless always.

      Awesome! One of my favorite verses is the last verse of James chapter 1 "True religion, that which is pleasing to God is to look after widows and orphans in distress. And keep yourself separate from the world"

      Great hub, keep looking for Jesus
