A new way of seeing Him

Why do people reject new ways of looking at or learning about the gospel? Our lives are so built around traditions that we have grown up around, especially in our religious practices. Even our ideas of how Jesus lived and acted are bound up in our ideas of what He would or wouldn’t do. How could we know? The writers of the gospels didn’t talk about Him laughing or having fun. The only verse that says anything about His emotion is the shortest in the Bible, “Jesus wept”.

God doesn’t have to conform to our ideas of what He would or would not do, especially in the Person of Jesus. Yes, He cried when He came to the tomb where His friend was laid to rest but He knew that he would live again. Can we learn and understand the gospels in a new way? Only if we are willing to. God has been using the series, The Chosen, as a way to reach so many people with the gospel over the past few years. Whether there will be time to finish the series or not is up to Him but if that happens many people will be brought into God’s Kingdom because of it.

God loves His creation, especially mankind, but He has never been too fond of the way we live and act toward each other or the world around us. We idolize so many things and people and most don’t even realize they are doing it. I pray that anyone who reads this small post will seek Him out to become their Savior. He is coming back for His church soon. I pray that you will be part of it.
