“Jesus is the only Savior, but not everybody who
is being saved by Him is aware that He is the
one who is doing the saving”
This is an interesting spin on interpreting the passages in John.
From N.T. Wright’s book, Surprised by Hope:
“It was not merely that God had inaugurated the ‘end’; if Jesus, the Messiah, was the End in person, God’s-future-arrived-in-the-present, then those who belonged to Jesus and followed him and were empowered by his Spirit were charged with transforming the present, as far as they were able, in the light of that future.”
He didn’t come to take us to heaven. He came to transform the present through us – to collaborate in bringing God’s Kingdom on earth!
As I think about my life with Jesus, I often wonder what if I weren’t afraid? What if I really knew and believed that He was going to show up when I needed him? Maybe I would:
- Start a preaching ministry
- Lead a group of men into the wilderness to meet God
- Fight for my daughter and her faith
- Sell my house and downsize so I could live with one foot raised
- Start a home group
- Tell my mother how much I love Jesus
What about you? What’s on your list? Then the question becomes – How have we let the enemy talk us out of all these things?
