Things Jesus Said: Week 1
For many Christians we spend a lot of time talking about things Jesus said (or is credited with saying). We have a tendency to put words into God’s mouth that are not His and this colors our understanding of God. Often, our understanding of Scripture is a direct reflection of our understanding of ourselves and how we perceive the world to be (or how we would like it to be). We often misunderstand who Jesus is because we misunderstand what He said. In this first installment of Things Jesus Said, Zach Farrar taught through one difficult teaching of Jesus in Matthew 22: “Many are called, few are chosen.” We cannot enter God’s Kingdom and take part in the life, hope, and peace He provides while still living in rebellion against Him. Jesus message to us is consistent – Repent, for the Kingdom of God is here.
If you would like to begin a conversation about following Jesus or would like to talk more about how your story and the Gospel connect, we would love to hear from you.
