No Generic God

From Blog10


You may be a religious man.
You may be a spiritual woman,
But if you don't know Jesus Christ,
You have never known God.

You may be a Bible scholar.
You may quote it perfectly,
But if you don't know Jesus Christ,
You have never known the Bible.

You may be respectable,
Honored by the world around,
But if you crave your own glory,
You've missed the glory that's from God.

You may justify yourself.
You may quote your favorite verse,
But if you're missing Jesus Christ,
You stand guilty, lost in sin.

(This posting is a paraphrase of Jesus' rebuke in John 5:37-47.

My pastor preached on that passage this morning.)
