The Minus-Jesus Church
“For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.” I Corinthians 2:2
“The man answered and said to them, “Well, here is an amazing thing, that you do not know where He is from, and yet He opened my eyes.” John 9:30
Do you know Jesus, personally as Lord and Savior? You may have grown up in the church. You may be a Sunday School teacher or sit on a board or committee in your local congregation. You may consider yourself “a Christian” because you are “a Methodist”, “a Pentecostal”, “a Baptist”, or “a Catholic.” But have you responded to the work of the Holy Spirit bearing witness upon your heart of your need to come willingly to the cross and accept by faith the gift of God’s salvation in Jesus Christ as the all-sufficient payment for your sins against a holy and loving God who loves you-yes you?
The Bible tells us that Jesus was born in Bethlehem and that He grew up in the town of Nazareth in Israel, but the most important thing is that He came “…from the Father full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14).
Paul had surrendered his life to Jesus and the only message he bore was “Christ and Him, crucified.” One has said, “To follow Christ means to deny self, to turn from ego and pride, and to surrender completely to your own life for Christ’s.” The formerly blind man of John Nine was astonished that the Pharisees didn’t recognize and understand with their hearts and lives who Jesus was and where He came from. They represented the “Minus-Jesus” life (church).
Won’t you give your heart to Christ today. He loves you so!
