Have you noticed that Christianity means different things to different people?
For some, when they hear Christianity they think about going to Church, prayer, singing, dancing, worship, sowing seeds, evangelism, fasting or that Christian or pastor they think is not doing the right things.
The only things they associate Christianity with are external things that other men can see.
Christianity is that religion mummy or daddy forced them to join when they were young. For them, it’s that social club with a list of moral conditions. Or maybe it’s what the white man used to enslave black people.
They don’t know that Jesus didn’t come to start a religious institution.
They genuinely do not know that Christianity is Jesus saving us from spiritual death and making us children of God.
They really have no idea that Christianity is divinity covered with flesh on earth. We are literally gods.
Dogs breed dogs. cats breed cats. God’s offspring are gods.
They may be sincere but many are sincerely wrong.
The only Jesus they know is the one who that sister said gave her a baby after years of service….or that brother who just got a job because he fasted for 120 days.
Their knowledge of Jesus is based on a mixture of hearsay and emotional highs. It usually isn’t grounded in truth or a personal intimate relationship with our loving Father.
Dear brothers and sisters, when I was with you I couldn’t talk to you as I would to spiritual people. I had to talk as though you belonged to this world or as though you were infants in the Christian life. 1 Corinthians 3:1
He who is Father to us is merely God to them even though we live in the same house.
What do you tell them if they ask you why you are a Christian and what this life is about?
There are a lot of blessings that came with this new nature.
2 Peter 1:4 says that we have been partners in the exact same nature as our Heavenly Father.
We are not only human anymore. You carry the same power that created the universe in your belly. Your words can change the course of an entire nation. What do you think Jesus is living in you for?
Our assignment here is to bring the dead into life. It’s to be a light that dispels darkness, heals the sick, raises the dead, builds empires that will be blessing to billions of people.
We are here to make Jesus famous.
