A Mystical Journey

On this second Advent Sunday our theme is, “Christ The Way.”  Since the resurrection of Jesus and the beginning of the grass roots movement, called, “The Way,” Christians have touted Jesus as the way to eternal life.  This has set up an exclusionary belief system.  I do not believe that Jesus was trying for that.

What I do believe is He was referring to what His life, teaching, and example meant.  If we live His way then we shall live an eternally, abundant life.  It is not something that is a deep secret that only a few have access to, but rather, a path that is open to all.

I know this flies in the face of what many teach but I do not believe that the God I serve would condemn someone to eternity in hell just because, at no fault of their own, they neglect to proclaim Jesus as God.

What is really at issue here is, are we seeking to love and serve God and the rest of creation?  If we are then we have fulfilled all of the law and prophets.

It is not an easy life, but because of God’s grace, we are forgiven by the sacrifice made by Jesus.  He truly did show us the way, the truth, and the life.  Whomever does these things shall be saved.

Meditate on that for a while.

God’s peace to all.
