Jesus, or Something Else
Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” John 14:6
Our distinction as God’s people should not lie in our adherence to some special creed, Christian culture or religious forms. Our distinctiveness should lie in the dynamic of Christ’s life demonstrating itself within us, within our marriages and within our families. All those around us should understand that it is ‘Christ in us’ who determines our deportment and distinctiveness. We are no longer our own; we are His. Our conduct, our conversation, our character is to be a living witness that He has complete empowerment in our lives. This should be THE BADGE we point to. The suppression and death of this truth, in living reality of our everyday lives, has been our downfall and our fatal deficiency.
Jesus Christ says, “I am the door”(John 10:9), in other words you must come through Me. When we try to come into the kingdom through other ways, denominationalism, doctrinairisms, lifestyles- we can look pretty good and fool a lot of people, but it doesn’t work to make the change that counts… the change in me from the inside out. The power lies within from an abiding experience in and through Jesus Christ. Every day I must enter through His Door. That is the gospel. It means I don’t have to keep living the life of pretentious Christianity. My thoughts can change. My emotions and responses can change. My habits can change to be like Him. He is my Door to the better life, He is the absolute vitality of my life, marriage, family, and my day!

In His Strength,
