2018 - LOVE! What is love and how does God love us?
How is God's perfect
love different from our imperfect love?
Jesus said: "Greater
love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. You are
My friends if you do what I command you." (John 15:13-14)
and then He laid down His life, dying on the cross to purchase forgiveness for
those who do what He commands. What did He command? That you believe in Him. That
you trust Him to save you from the wrath of God against sin.
2018 - If you have the wrong Jesus,
you have nothing.
How can anyone
have the wrong Jesus? After all, Jesus is in the Bible. What other Jesus is there?
disciples lived with Him, traveled with Him, ate with Him, and were taught by
Him. Yet, the fact is they did not know Him. They believed in a Jesus who only
existed in their imaginations. How could that be? Their desires dominated them...
and their desire was for a Savior who was not at all like the real Jesus. They
were putting their trust in their imaginations instead of reality. Are you doing
"Call yourself a Christian if you want, but if you have the
wrong view of God--you're a pagan!" You're a pagan! That's idolatry!"
