Charles Hodge said, “To be in Christ is the source of the Christian’s life; to be like Christ is the sum of His excellence; to be with Christ is the fullness of His joy.”
This is Daniel Whyte III with Just Jesus, a podcast designed to celebrate the birth, life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the impact He has on the world, and the salvation He offers for all people. This is episode #72. The aim of this podcast is to encourage you to begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to begin to live your life according to His Word.
Our Just Jesus passage from the Word of God today is John 1:1 which reads: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Our featured Just Jesus quote today is from Reggie White. He said, “Talking about my relationship with Jesus Christ is as natural as breathing for me. I say relationship because it’s a day-by-day, night-by-night, ongoing communication between Jesus and me. I’m not saying that any person can use the name of Jesus and beat every opponent. If that were true, I could skip all my practices, and forget about my weight training and conditioning. But I do want to live and breathe Jesus Christ so much that when people see me, they see Him. I still mess up and fall short of imitating Him in my life, but He always forgives and encourages me.”
Jesus Christ said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” In the early days after Jesus’ ascension to Heaven, the people we now call followers of Christ or Christians simply called their new faith “The Way.” Yes, the Way to a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, the Way to joy, the Way to peace, and the Way to eternal life with God in Heaven. Do you want to know The Way to all these blessings? Let me show you how.
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will. Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Until next time,
Remember, “At the end of the day only one thing matters, and that’s Jesus, Just Jesus, and nothing else.”
