Christianity is a person. God gave all his power and authority and everything in between to his Son. Christianity is ONLY Christ Jesus. Jesus said, “If you knew me, you would know my Father.”
His statement really resonated with me and what God has been teaching me lately. I commented on his post by saying,
Somewhere in our records we have a copy of that Marriage certificate, although I have not able to find it for the last few years (is there a trend here?). But we have more proof than a piece of paper that we are married, that proof is found in our relationship. Many Christians doubt their salvation because all they have is a record. “I was baptized on this day;” or “I joined the church on this day.” But they don’t have a close personal relationship with Jesus that they live out every day. So they have no assurance.
I know for sure that I am married because I have a record at the El Paso County courthouse. However, if the only thing your marriage consists of is a certificate, you have a pretty miserable marriage.
The relationship gives life to the record. “He who has the Son has life.”
How is your relationship with Jesus?
Is it more than just a record?
