Have you heard of Jesus?
I’m not asking if you’ve heard of church, or if you’ve heard of Christians, or if you’ve heard of religion.
I’m asking if you’ve heard of Jesus.
This is the Jesus who was born a descendant of Israel’s King David. It’s the Jesus who gave His life in love for others – the Jesus through whom God worked miracles. The Jesus who was cruelly rejected and crucified…and yet who was, three days after His death, raised from the dead and then ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of God. Have you heard of this Jesus?
This Jesus I am describing to you is the One to whom you should pay attention. He is alive. He is reigning throughout every molecule of the universe. His angels have every hair on your head counted. Everything you do in this life matters to Him. If He pays this much attention to you, shouldn’t you be paying attention to Him?
(One of the things His life clearly communicates to us is that God is calling us to better – that is, more moral – behavior.)

The purpose of this blog is to proclaim Jesus Christ to those who want to hear about Him without having to join a church – or anything else – but Him.
