It’s All About Jesus

There is nothing complicated about the gospel.  Everything points to Jesus!  The gospel message is centered around having a personal intimate relationship with Jesus.  We should be knowing and following Jesus.  All of our church curriculum/content, learn group lessons and messages should be focused on that; simply knowing and following Jesus.

We read the bible, memorize scripture, and pray so that we can grow closer to Christ.  In John 5:39 Jesus was upset at the religious leaders because they searched the scriptures with impure motives, “You search the scriptures because you think they give you eternal life.  But the scriptures point to me!”  What does this mean?  The Bible is not just a book written by men, all of scripture points us to Jesus; every verse helps us to know, follow, love and obey Him.

Whenever you get discouraged or feel like you don’t understand a certain scripture or concept in the bible; be comforted in knowing that the entire bible is a love letter from Jesus!  

My prayer for myself and the entire church is that we would never be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. (2 Cor. 11:3)
