Which Jesus Will You Follow?
In today’s culture it seems we have a choice of two. The question I would like to pose is, “Which Jesus will you follow?”
Do you follow the Jesus born as God almighty in the flesh as revealed in John 1:1-14? Or, do you follow the Jesus taught in today’s modern culture, who is portrayed as a good teacher and man?
Will you follow the Jesus who hates sin and exposes sin for what it is as revealed in John 3: 18-21? Or do you follow the Jesus who overlooks sin and will never correct you?
Will you follow the Jesus who demands that emotion, experience and opinion conform to sound teaching as revealed in Matthew 23:1-39? Or do you follow the Jesus that exalts emotion, experience and opinion above sound teaching?
Do you follow the Biblical Jesus who stated in John 14:5, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” Or do you follow the Jesus who says, “All paths lead to God”?
Do you follow the Jesus who said in Mathew 5:48 “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Or will you follow the Jesus who says, “as long as you are a good person, you will be ok”?
Do you follow the Jesus who says in 1 John 2:15, “Do not love the world or the things in the world; if anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in Him.” Or, do you follow the Jesus who says, “It is ok to continue living as you always have, because you are saved by grace, therefore you are fine.”
As you can see, we have a Jesus been taught today that will conform to a doctrine of no offense contrasted against a Biblical Jesus. Therefore, the question is, “which Jesus are you following?”
Everyone has a choice to make, serving the Biblical Jesus or serving the modern Jesus as taught today in so many of our churches. The choice is yours to make. Also remember the admonition in Matthew 6:24, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.”
So the challenge I give to everyone is, “choose you this day whom you will serve,” Joshua 24:15
Will it be the Biblical Jesus or the modern day Jesus preached in so many of today’s churches?
