“If I am not doing my Father’s works, don’t believe me. But if I am doing them and you don’t believe me, believe the works. This way you will know and understand that the Father is in me and I in the Father.”
JOHN 10:37-38 (CSB)

—————————————————————————

Derwin Gray preached at Northwood Church in Keller last Sunday. Dr. Gray grew up in difficult circumstances on the west side of San Antonio. He played college football at Brigham Young University and professionally for the Indianapolis Colts and Carolina Panthers. He is the founding pastor of Transformation Church just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Derwin noted in his message how the religious people of Jesus’ day were so religious that they missed who Jesus is. We can see this in the verses above. Those particular religious folks who had risen to places of significance and prominence were not about to accept Jesus for who he was because he did not do things their way. 

It can sound simplistic rather than simple, but Jesus wants a real relationship with men, women, boys, and girls. You get the idea that Jesus is more interested in simple faith rather than complex rituals and routines and ecclesiastical hierarchies. 

A couple of days ago, some people I follow on social media were engaged in robust debates using words requiring dictionaries to define to prove their brand of Christianity is intellectually superior. It also led them to conclusions completely out of step with what God has said and what Jesus did. Eschewing one theological error, they chose another more sophisticated error.

Listen well again to what Derwin said. Do not allow yourself to become so religious that you miss the relationship our Father in heaven offers through Jesus his Son. 

First things first: Get to know Jesus. Know Jesus.

I will know Jesus and make him known.

Our Father, open our eyes that we may see you for who you are. Forgive us for focusing on anything that distracts from your wonder, beauty, and limitless love. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
