I Peter 4:12-13 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that is taking place among you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you are sharing Christ's sufferings, so that you may also be glad and shout for joy when his glory is revealed.
People sometimes ask me - "Why did you call your website that. Christianityworks dot com?"
"Does it mean that Christianity is about works….that somehow we have to work and work our way into God's favor?"
No - that's not what it means.
Because when we believe in Jesus - God's favor and forgiveness is free. It's called grace - amazing.
"So - what does it mean?"
Well - here's the idea. I figure if I'm going to believe in Jesus - it has to work. It has to make a difference in my life - a good difference not a bad difference.
When I got to checking out this Jesus - that's what I thought - it has to work.
"Well - does it?"
I'm glad you asked. For me - it's about following in Jesus footsteps. And that's about letting go of my way and living it His way. It involves serving, sacrificing and suffering. But you know something - I've never had more joy and peace in my life.
