I grew up wondering about all the different churches like Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, Nazarene, Catholic, etc… I was a bit confused about so many different kinds of churches. As I grew older, I begin to understand the differences between the different churches – I must say that it makes me a bit sad. As I grew up and checked out things more carefully, I realized that most all of the churches I know of preach and teach that Jesus is the ONLY Son of God. I began to look carefully about what these churches do with Jesus. Paul speaks clearly to the church at Corinth about staying on track with their trust in Jesus. Check this out…3 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. (2 Corinthians 11:3-4 NIV)
I have a lot of different opinions about a lot of different matters related to my faith. One part is crystal clear – Jesus is the one & only Son of God. He came to earth – lived a sinless life and became the perfect sacrifice for my sin. I can’t quite wrap my head around that kind of love, but I will accept it and embrace the forgiveness and grace that Jesus brought into my world. There are times that it’s not logical to have faith – but I believe in Him anyway. There are times when I don’t understand and can’t figure out what just happened – I will believe in Him anyway. I want to walk with Him and trust Him all the days of my life here on earth. I believe that Jesus is THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE!
