The impact of Jesus Christ on the earth cannot be commeasure with any other. The life of Jesus on earth was significant that people trod after Him to learn from Him. He created avenue for the rich and poor/less privileged to come to Him. Jesus was always doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil , Acts. 10:38. As the beloved son of God, he came down from heaven in human form to save the race of mankind from the power of sin and the devil.
Jesus didn't only perform miracles, he laid down the principles of effective relationship between humans. The "Golden rule" form the basis of relationship which implies treating others the way you want them to treat you or doing to others what you want them to do likewise. Jesus didn't only laid down this principle, he was a living example of it. He first loved us and sacrificed his life for the remission of our sins.
The teachings of Jesus Christ reflect the will of God for every man to walk in holiness and be at peace with one another. Jesus in his teaching revealed how we can effect good relationship with one another which will enhance faster growth and also revealed us as children of the Most High God irrespective of our tribe, race, religion, position etc.
It's important to know that the teachings of Jesus Christ will help us to build a strong relationship, establish bond of love among one another and settle all form of brouhaha, crisis among religious organization, ethnic groups, races. Some of teaching Jesus christ are:
Jesus himself reflected this, He also taught others to do the same. He summarized the ten commandments under Love, which is the fulfillment of the law. Jesus commanded us to love God which all heart, also, he commanded us to love our neighbour as ourselves. Note that your neighbour is not only the person who lives beside your apartment or house but all humans irrespective of their tribe, religion, colour etc.
2. The beatitude
This is one of the teaching of Jesus Christ on the mountain. Matthew 5:2-9. Here Jesus listed different categories of people and their rewards. Some of the things He talked about are being merciful, meek, making peace, and living a life of purity. The teaching of Jesus admonishes us to love one another, showing mercy, exhibiting meekness, making peace, holy living which will enhance effective relationship with God and also create a peaceful and sociable environment.
3. Judging others.
Matthew 7:1, "Judge not, that ye not be judged" . Jesus forbids us from judging others. Before you make an attempt of judging others, examine yourself. Why should a sinner judge judge another sinner? We should not be quick to judge others because of their beliefs, tribe and action. Jesus clearly emphasized that the same way you judge others, you will be judged - Matt. 7: 2-4. God is the judge above all who we will all give accounts of our deeds to.
4. All souls are precious to God.
Luke 15:11-32, John 7:53–8:11. Jesus actions express this in the incidence of a woman caught in adultery. Those who caught her demand that She should be stoned to death according to Mosaic law but Jesus' answer to you them made them walk away from the eldest to the least. Jesus said in John 8:7
"So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her".
This clearly shows that all soul are precious to God and we should not be driven or provoked to take a life we cannot create.
Also, the story of the prodigal son is a clear depiction of God love and joy for all sinners to repent from their sins.
The teaching of Jesus Christ is to create love among humans and ensure effective relationship with God. The world will change when we imbibed these teaching of Jesus will bring love, peace, mercy and abundant grace of God.
