This is who it’s always been about...
I have been rather quiet here, but not because I have nothing to share. Rather- the biggest reason being that I have so much I want to share that it’s been hard to know what to share. But also because moving is not a joke;)
Today I want to share something that God has shown me, and I can not tell you how much it has changed the way I think.
Simply put- everything is about Jesus. Jesus is all we need to focus on. When teaching or talking about Christianity, we often get so wrapped up in the things that point us *to* Jesus that we forget to teach Jesus Himself!
“Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he preached Jesus to him.”
“And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.”
I never really noticed what that is saying... until recently.
Sometimes we (me included) get caught up in “I’m baptist” or “I’m Pentecostal” or “I’m” whatever...
the point is Jesus.
I’m going to share with you something interesting...
Cosmology- the study of origin and beginnings.
(The study if a Person- Jesus the Creator)
Eschatology-the study of what is to come-the ending.
(The study of a Person -Jesus, the Almighty which is to come)
•NOTE• think of the title of Revelation... it’s not called “The Revelation of the end times” it’s called “The Revelation of JESUS CHRIST”!!
. Theology - the study of all things pertaining to God.
(The study of a Person-Jesus the image of the invisible God.)
Soteriology - the study of salvation.
(The Study of a Person - Jesus the Man of salvation.)
Sabbatology- The study of the Sabbath and the particular day for honoring this rest.
(The study of a Person- Jesus the Rest of God.)
And I will stop there... but you get the point right??
It’s Jesus. Jesus. Jesus.
That is the gospel.
Gospel- the Text, about the Man, and what that Man did on the cross for us.
Everything is about Jesus and Him crucified.
We need to make Jesus our focus!
