This blog is my last to be published in my first year of the Main Thing and the Faith Blog. In one year, I produced 3 core pages (evergreen pages) and 47 blogs. 50 published in 52 weeks. I expect I will do another 50 in the year to come.
I know in this beginning year I published quite a few things that had been bubbling in my heart for a long time.
In the second, year things start to get a little deeper or more ways to talk about the Main Thing and its children. note Romans 8:32:
He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
God made us people, and he wants to love us. We often look away. It is not just the pagans who do this.
In all the years of this Earth, God has held his hands out to us, and still we live as orphans.
Jesus died on a cross for us sinners, and we doubt His love for us moment by moment.
The Cross is not a message just for the lost. We are all lost again and again and cannot simply abide.
The Main Thing Faith Is Hard To Always Grasp
For sure the Cross is a not a Sunday School lesson. It is our all, every day. We only need to live moment by moment in the life of Jesus death to live a great life. See also About The Main Thing.
To study the Gospel of John, you can feel the drum beat. Jesus says again and again that we only need to believe. Note John 6:28,29:
28 Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”
29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”
When we believe, darkness can part and life can come in. The walls can collapse, and the blind can see.
Jesus never asks, “Are you good enough?” He even goes out of the way to note that none of us is good.
He asks us again and again only to believe.
