“You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.”
Everything is about the message.
We are people who know this message.
We have heard the message.
We know where the message came from.
Let us never forget this.
It’s not about anything else.
No matter how important.
If the message is not being given and received then there is no purpose for anything else.
The message: you know it.
But is the message correct?
After all there are 330 million gods in Hinduism alone!
Is the Christ message unique to that of the Hindu, the Muslim or the Buddhist?
The answer to that question is determined by how the message answers the following 4 big questions:
Where did I come from?
Why am I here?
How do I know right from wrong?
Where do I end up?
When those answers from those 4 religions are sat side by side then the Christian message that comes through Jesus stands above the other three.
Man strives for utopia, for nirvana, for moksha, to fulfil every word of the Koran, but they fail every time.
The Christian message is:
1. You become one with God through Jesus.
2. You are forgiven.
3. You keep your identity but Christ lives in you and through that identity making it new and real.
Read those magnificent statements again!
Let us fall in love with the message again today.
