As I was getting fitted for glasses and getting checked out, the lady at the front desk noticed my occupation.
She was asking me a little about it and then said something that’s been stirring in me since I heard it…
“I don’t go to church, I do believe in God. A pastor told me a few days ago that in order for me to know Jesus, I need to have a good understanding of the Bible and what was happening in history at the time it was written.”
Are there really people out there that believe that?
Are there really people leading our churches and people that believe that Jesus is really that hard to accept?
After thinking through this a little, I’ve come to this conclusion…
The more I learn about the Bible and Jesus, the more simple I realize it really is.
Sure, studying scripture is always a good thing.
It helps you know your faith better and helps us glean wisdom that can only come for in-depth study.
But, to know Jesus, it only takes one thing…
Please don’t make following Christ about anything but what Jesus has done for you!
(Of course, I cleared this up with the lady that asked the question. No, she didn’t accept Jesus, but I think she got closer.) :-)
