2 John 1:9

Why do you go farther than the teaching of Christ?

The teaching of Christ is enough to save the whole world.  He is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His character.  All things came into being through His word and they hold together for the same reason.

Why do we say then that people have to join our church or “sow seed” into our ministry?  Why do we even promote a connection with ourselves at all when it is only a connection with Him that will save them?

If every Christian minister were to stop every other ministry activity except to declare the glory of Jesus Christ for one year, we would see the world changed in more dramatic fashion than ever before witnessed.  The effect would make all prior revivals and awakenings seem small by comparison.

We have gone way too far from abiding in the teaching of Christ.
