This is the Life!

How many ways are there to God? To each his own? Every one needs to find their own path? How about One? There is one path to the Father, and it is through Jesus Christ. What makes Jesus so unique? Jesus alone is the Son of God. Only Jesus has both a human mother, and a Divine Father, seeded via the Holy Spirit. Only Jesus has both a human side, and a Divine side. Only Jesus is God incarnate, or God in flesh. So only Jesus can speak to this issue.

Jesus is also unique in that He is the only one to died and be resurrected. You may say that there are many stories of death and resurrection in mythology, i.e., Osiris. However, Jesus can be corroborated with history. Jesus’ resurrection is no myth. You can examine the evidences for yourself, but one thing that always convinces me is Jesus’ brother, James. James grew up with Jesus. James resisted ever considering his older brother anything more than that, a human being. In fact, James tried to bring Jesus home once, with his mother Mary, thinking that Jesus was a bit crazy. However, you can find a letter written by him in the New Testament. It bears his name. Turns out that James received a special post-resurrection appearance from Jesus (1 Cor 15) and became a believer in his brother’s Divinity, so much so, that James refers to himself not as a brother of Jesus, but a servant. I bet you never told your older brother that.

Is Jesus the Lord of your life? I certainly hope so. And I hope this note has been an encouragement for you. Thank you all for reading.

Lord help us going into tomorrow be refreshed and prepared for the challenges that await us. Thank You Lord for Your marvelous gift of Your Salvation and Grace. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
