Fasten Your Gaze Onto Jesus

Fasten Your Gaze Onto Jesus

Thursday, 18 February 2021

Weekly, churches heave with parishioners worldwide. But what do they seek? An overwhelming majority of them go to church because it’s a good tradition (morally and ethically) and because they’re following a religion. Tradition and/or religion don’t quite cut it. They’re both awry in accordance with the Scriptures of the new covenant in the blood of Jesus. The new covenant in the blood of Jesus!

“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh,” (Hebrews 10:19-20 NKJV). Most churchgoers’ eyes are still veiled to the reason for church, the true church of Christ. No tradition, no religion here. But He consecrated for us a new and living way through His death. 

Out with the old, in with the new. The new says, “I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life.” First, Jesus is the new and living way to GOD, He’s our only access to the Father. Not tradition, religion, baptism, ritual, ceremony/feast, pastor, prophet, bishop, or church. Parishioners miss this. Second, Jesus is the reality of GOD, the truth of and about GOD. Not figure, type or shadow. He’s the real deal, He’s the Man, the One. Parishioners miss this too. 

Third, Jesus is the life, both now and eternally. GOD did not create man to die but to live forevermore. No sickness or infirmity could touch man. Even after man sinned he still lived a considerably long period of time in his blood and flesh body. Consider these men and their ages: Seth 912, Adam 930, Noah 950, and Methuselah 969. That’s beyond incredible! Selah. How could a human body live that long? It’s because life is a Person who exists from eternity to eternity. Do you wanna live long and be happy? Perhaps you might want to look a little beyond your trusted pastor, church, anointed water, oil, candles, salt, sand, cloth, sticker, the whole caboodle. But the parishioners miss this. 

Christianity is a devotion, a way of thinking and living. (Remember your life is the sum total of your thoughts). It’s a life in the Person of the Christ of GOD. It’s not a crutch to get by or a quick way out to get what you want. None of that. It’s GOD the Father and Son living in you through GOD the Spirit. Selah. Your entire life, I mean entire, consumed with GOD and pulsating and abounding with eternal life. Out of your heart shall flow rivers of living water, meaning your life will overflow with the substance, the essence, the very eternal life and power of GOD. Notice rivers are in plural! This is why you go to church. You are a church (temple) going to church. Are your rivers still flowing? The life and power of GOD in you. 

You don’t go to church to offer pitiful prayers or look dour-faced in case the LORD or nceku might feel sorry for you. Most have missed or have not known the reason for church – it’s Jesus and only Jesus. A devotion, a relationship, a way of thinking and living. GOD inhabiting man. Next time you go to church have a flinty determination to know, worship, and serve Jesus. This is how the rivers come, the only way.

Christianity is a devotion, a way of thinking and living. (Remember your life is the sum total of your thoughts). It’s a life in the Person of the Christ of GOD
