Just a not so gentle reminder that Jesus, the Christ of God, gave His life for you. If you claim to belive this, then it behooves you to act like it. One: stop playing church and BE the church. Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, lives in you and want to minister in this dying world through you. Daycares and community clean-up projects are nice, but if we are not preaching about the saving grace of Jesus, we are wasting our time as a church. Remember – every person you know and every person that you don’t know is one heartbeat away from heaven or hell. If that doesn’t matter to you, well… Two: If you truly love people with the love of Jesus, you will tell them the truth. You will tell them about sin and forgiveness, about heaven and hell, and that the true power of living is found in our submission to our creator through Jesus, the Christ. It has been said that if we lose the ”holiday” of Christmas, we lose only a couple of chapters at the beginning of Matthew and Luke; but if we lose the resurrection – we lose everything.
