Jesus’s ways are simple and powerful:
• Know a tree by its fruit;
• Treat folks like you’d want;
• Love God, then your neighbor.
Plain. Simple. Brilliant.
That’s why I love the following verse:
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. – 1 John 5:12 (John 3:18, 36)
Doesn’t get more simple than that:
Jesus = life.
No Jesus = death.
There is no third choice. There is no riding the fence. There is no middle ground.
Either you gather or scatter.
Either you are for or against (Matt. 12:30).
Either you are alive or dead.
He won’t force you to love Him. It ain’t no shotgun wedding. It’s your choice. What’s it gonna be? Which razor do you want?
