THE WHOSOEVERS Who are they? Those who come to him!
John 6:37 “whoever comes to me I will never cast out. This is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him should have eternal life.” John 6:37 ESV
I spoke at a church not long ago, and had a lady confront me that I didn’t include Buddhism, and other religions when I was talking about Ephesians 4 and growing up toward the Head which is Christ. She seemed to think I was narrow-minded. Yep I probably am! Narrow is the door (Jesus said). Narrow.
I said well, I’m hear to talk about Jesus and us growing up toward the Head, which is Christ. a guy in the group said “Jesus is the way” but she was undaunted. She continued to talk about Buddhism and how much it was like Christianity as she went out the door. She was there to attend bible study.
I find myself wondering …..why go to a bible study if you have not already come to Jesus? but see, many believe Christianity is a learned thing. It’s not.
Its a surrendered- heart to- Jesus your- Lord thing. Not a learned thing. A heart -thing. A born- again thing. A supernatural experience with Jesus. Living water! Bread of life in the form of annointed words to your receiving ears!
You cannot enter the Kingdom of God without being “born again” ……and Christianity IS NOT A RELIGION It’s a relationship with Jesus Christ and receving him as Saviour and Lord.
If it was something else I would be down at the bar drinking and having a great time ……..
Because religion is dry and boring. (and lifeless) Jesus is LIFE! I am so baffled someone can go to church and not even believe…….
but it happens. I Hope I was a light in that place! Personally I have no interest in a church that would even dare to be JESUS LESS or start saying Christianity is all- inclusive with other Beliefs. IF that is ever the only church there is I will not be in church. You’l lfind me somewhere in a garden….
