Jesus Swagger by Jarrid Wilson

To be honest, when I decided to review this book I wasn’t sure what to make of the book, especially with the title, Jesus Swagger. However, also being a millennial I decided to give it a shot. So, what is Jesus swagger? Jarrid Wilson states that “Jesus swagger is all about your life being infected with the love of Christ. Being different, noticeably different , so much so that people wonder, What is different about that person?” As a millennial and a Christian young in the faith, this book spoke to the heart of things I struggle with and provided useful scripture to overcome them. He shares the differences between someone who believes in Jesus and someone who actually follows Him. Jarrid focuses on making sure we are not just being posers of Christianity but actually living out the life Jesus has called us to live. It turns out Jesus doesn’t like posers; as he states in Revelations 3:16 “But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!” Jarrid covers how to not be lukewarm for God, and reminds us “it’s time to stop making up excuses about why we can’t be what God has made us to be. We should care less about the coffee shop lady’s shallow opinions, and only focus on the one that matters: God’s.” This book will definitely challenge you – if you are poser now, after reading this book you shouldn’t be. Ultimately Jarrid demonstrates how to equip yourself to live ”a lifestyle that resembles Jesus to the fullest, not worrying about the opinions of others, but instead holding firm to a foundation in Christ alone; one that is able to withstand anything the world throws at you.”
