Good morning everyone,
In chapter 9 of Matthew, Jesus simply says, 'Follow Me.' John 14:6 says, 'I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.' People are searching for answers to try and make the way to the Father complicated and it is not! They seek answers in all sorts of places other than the One who made it oh so simple. As John Courson puts it, His words are profoundly simple....and simply profound. The simplicity in my opinion is really hard for a lot of individuals to grasp. They want to believe that some complicated formula has to be cracked before they can see the answers they are searching to get! The problem is that so many people search for the Truth their entire life in many strange places when He happens to be within a whispers distance. Many religions believe that there are many ways to God when our Holy Bible reveals that there is only One way! Either you believe the entire scripture or you believe none of it. The Bible is the inspired word of God which means that He doesn't want us to pick and chose what parts we want to believe. He wants us to believe the entire Scripture! Oh by the way, many people that cross your path or seeking answers. Pray that God will give you the boldness to steer them toward the Truth! Remember that He spent much of His time with tax collectors and prostitutes. You don't have to beat somebody of the head with the Truth (that is what they liked about spending time with Jesus). Just be available to love, encourage, and pray with folks right where they are at! You are just responsible to plant the seed. He will grow it to maturity!
Your brother in Christ,
