Jesus loved his father – and he spent a lot of time communicating with him.

What a wonderful choice when the decision was made to send Jesus to live as a man. The earthly Jesus is the being who lived, laughed, loved, in the manner with which I can identify He also carried the same sorrows which I sometimes carry. He modeled behavior which was pleasing to his Father. In that way I know how to strive to please my Father.

There are so many who seem to have a generic “God” but it is hard to have a generic Jesus.  One can even receive a modicum of respect in talking about one’s God, but talk about Jesus and the defenses rise.  Especially if you say we have eternal life through him.  Doesn’t change the facts however.  Jesus died that we might have forgiveness for our sins.

 Try teaching Jesus as the Way, the only Way to Heaven and the lines of tolerance are quickly drawn!

A few years ago, a member of a team of in-training ministers said they had been learning to witness without mentioning Jesus. Huh? Witnessing to what? A witness that will draw one to salvation MUST draw one to Jesus. Breaks my heart to see him scrubbed from the walls and halls of many churches.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  2. Seriously, what kind of witnessing can be done without Jesus?

    Without Jesus there can be no Christian faith. Coming as a man and dying (as a man) on a cross symbol of the sacrificial lamb from generations past, is the whole reason for Jesus coming. Without the CROSS there is no salvation and sadly this is the sadness of what is being taught to many of the young people. There is only ONE Saviour. We do not have other ‘choices’. Choose Jesus and LIVE life abundantly, walk, talk to Him through all of life’s strife and turmoil. Only Jesus! What are they teaching in a church without Jesus? It could just as easy be a club.
