Are You Interested in Christ or Christians?

The title is not a trick question.  The difference can be enormous.

Jesus Christ is the name of our Creator when He came to live among us as one of us.  He overcame death for our sakes so that we might live forever with Him in heaven.  He reigns over all of creation and fills it as well.  That means He is present wherever you or I or anyone else goes.  He is righteous and able to meet all your needs in life.  He calls you to follow Him by making your life a sacrifice that will benefit others.  If you follow Jesus, you will become like Him.

Christians are those who say they are followers of Christ.  They may accept part or all of what I just wrote about Him.  Their behavior is not that different from normal human behavior.  That is, Christian behavior is all over the map: some very good, some very bad, and most in the middle of these extremes.  Christians say, “Follow us.”  That is, they want you to attend church with them.  If you follow them, you will become like them.

So…are you interested in following Christ or Christians?  The answer turns on whom you want to become like.

The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus to those who want to hear about Him without having to join something.
