This is Christmas. Jesus is a King of heavenly standards, not earthly. We cannot compare Him to anything we have ever heard of or seen in earthly rulers, no matter how wise or good they were. They were still human; let us not ever forget that. Jesus came to save a lost world that still doesn't know it's lost. He came to show the world what God is really like; what Love looks like; that God is Love and there are no conditions. We don't have to love Him; but we are unfairly blessed when we do.
Let's remember that this Christmas.
The first thing Jesus said to His disciples was "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." This same charge has been given to us. We are to be made into fishers of men so others can be made into fishers of men. This is the purpose behind the Great Commission. We do this by living the Great Commandments. The Great Commandments are:
- Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength
- Love your neighbor as yourself.
Jesus Himself said all the law and prophets rest on these two commandments.
Come visit us and learn first hand what we are about. We look forward to meeting you!
