The most important thing

I wrote a post recently that’s gotten more traction than any post I’ve written before.

Its a little bit a semantical discussion of the difference between a “follower” of Jesus and a Disciple.

But I wanted to make sure that I was clear on what I think that means.

I believe in the God of the Bible. I believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a perfect sinless life and died innocent on a Cross. I believe that his death was an acceptable sacrifice to God for the sins of mankind. I believe that Jesus is the way to God, and to a relationship with God.

I believe that every person on this planet should know Jesus. That he is real, alive, and active in the World today through his Holy Spirit.

I believe that the teachings of Jesus and then his disciples after he left, are the foundation not just for a good life but for a godly life, a life that is pleasing to God. I believe in the reality of sin, a spirit world, and an afterlife. A disciple, a true disciple, is one who dedicates their whole life to following the teachings and life principles of their master as best as possible. and I do that.

However, I believe that the relationship I enjoy with God isn’t though any behavior of mine that was earned. It is rather through this incredible concept called Grace, where God give us something we don’t deserve.

  • Money can solve most of life’s problems. Solving the remaining ones makes you truly rich.

    There was a time, not too long ago, when the credit card bills were way higher than the savings account. Those with money or who have never struggled with debt don’t often have grace with those who do. They’ll begin with “just…” and give you some wonderful financial tip, like how you should have invested […]

  • The Unexpected Solution to Anxiety

    I was having panic attacks a while back. They started when my daughter and I were involved in a car crash. It was the closest I have come to death in some time. The fact that my daughter was with me made it worse. The first panic attack came as I was driving through the […]
