When I was a Street Pastor, a young man asked me, “Do you really believe in Jesus, God and that?” It was the honesty and the bluntness in the question that I admired.
And “that” – transformed my thinking about how I talked about Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit.
As I train for ministry, remind me to keep Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit relevant and simple. Because simplicity is key. Jesus came to make it simple.
Jesus is a real bloke, and being a Christian is about a real friendship with that bloke.
A bloke that cares.
A bloke that just happens to be God’s son.
A bloke that died on a cross and lives now, so we can each know God.
(Did you read that? Know God.)
There’s something special about this bloke Jesus.
Something about Him that I love and can’t live without.
