Isaiah 53:2b ……. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
Sometimes we can take things for granted. We make assumptions based on presumptions and end up in error.
When I was at school we started every day with the whole class, including the teacher, reciting The Lord’s Prayer. Not any more.
“Merry Christmas” has been substituted with “Happy Holidays” and an ‘X’ now replaces ‘Christ’ in Christmas. What we took for granted has been removed to appease political correctness to avoid offending our antichrist society.
It is time for a radical rethink.
From the time that Christ was taken out of our schools we have created an X-generation who have little or no concept of who Jesus really is. The UK is no longer a Christian nation; that ‘X’ now represents all kinds of things. We have taken Christ for granted and He has been replaced by something else.
As I travel around the world I have discovered that my Jesus is not necessarily the same Jesus to Christians in other places. It is a huge mistake to presume so. Even among Christians, Jesus has become Lord X; a character with a personality of our own making. We all talk about Jesus but we are not all talking about the same person.
It is time to rediscover who Jesus Christ truly is. It is time for us all to meet Him in the Most Holy Place and to know Him intimately in every aspect of His glorious multi-faceted being. He is crying out for lovers; He is calling out for disciples.
It is time for us all to meet the awesome Jesus of the bible and stop making the assumption that Christians know who He is. When we do this we will be able to present a wonderful, fascinating and relevant Jesus to a lost generation and replace that ‘X’ with the Cross.
Lord Jesus, please forgive us for taking Christianity for granted. Amen
