Good Morning March15

It took some years after the beginning of the Church before people were called Christians. In the Book of Acts Christians were called the people of The Way. I’ve always liked that. I think it is an important designation we can take to heart. We are not just part of a religion, but we live by a certain way of life. That life is defined by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, the Christ. Jesus said of Himself, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”(John 14:6) He followed that immediately by saying, “no man comes to the Father but by Me.” He is speaking of a singular path into the presence of God, not many paths, or all roads as some like to believe. The way that Jesus offers is good. It is not followed by a set of legal regulations, but by a relationship of grace that is offered to each person. The way we seek to walk is guided by the two great commandments, to love God above all else, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. The way of Christ is seeking to walk in daily fellowship with One who loves us more than we know.
