Word for Today:  November 19


The Bottom Line.

The Bottom Line of the Christian Faith is that Christians are to be like Jesus.  The very word “Christian” means “like Christ.”  We are not to be like Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Pentecostals, Charismatics… or any other “religious” group… we are to be LIKE JESUS.

We are not to be like Oral Roberts, Billy Graham, Simon Peter, the Apostle Paul or any other notable preacher or teacher.  We are to be LIKE JESUS.

We have been so caught up with studying and learning about Jesus that we have neglected the simplicity of Knowing Jesus and Knowing Jesus intimately.

This is not something new for the church.  It happened in Ephesus as John describes in the Book of Revelation:

I know thy works and thy labor and thy patience and how thou canst not bear them which are evil and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles and are not and hast found them liars and hast borne and hast patience and for my name’s sake hast labored and hast not fainted nevertheless I have somewhat against thee because thou hast left thy first love… Rev. 2:2-4

The result of continuing to neglect our First Love is spelled out clearly in this passage.

Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen and repent and do the first works; or else….  Rev. 2: 5


Remember… Repent… and Return
