“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life—”
I John 1:1
Just like Mary and Lazarus and just like Peter and John we are meant to have Jesus. He is our next breath our next day and we are meant to share His life with him.Not just a glimpse now and then and not just a church, we are meant to live His life.
The purpose of Jesus death, burial, and resurrection was to Ransom us from sin and deliver us from the clutches of evil, returning us back to God. All of this so His life can feel our life. Everything else is religiosity!
For many people the Christ they know is too religious to love, too distant to experience, and to Rigid to be a source of life. But the Bible says he is the same yesterday today and forever. He is better than we thought, better than we feared, and better than we dare to believe!
May our confidence in Christ grow to a whole new level today.
