JESUS SAID IT....

We all claim to be "JESUS Followers", and we love HIM with ALL of our Heart so much that we never want to disobey HIM or do what is not pleasing in HIS sight.

Would we love him enough to RE-VISIT the word HE wrote in the Gospels?  Would we love him enough to let go of our pride and our need for affirmation through titles, and validation from men through religious institutions that hand out pieces of paper call "Diploma's" that we covet more than the approval of JESUS Himself?  Would we be humble enough to admit that we have been doing church and ministry our way for hundreds of years just based on what man has decided that would work and has been dictated by changes in historical and political culture, INSTEAD of the WORD JESUS actually spoke in giving us direction??  Are we BRAVE ENOUGH to OBEY what JESUS actually told us to do in the WORD?  I would love to CHALLENGE ALL of US...to get back into the New Testament and RE-READ the WORDS of Jesus through a mind that is not using a FILTER based on Denominational Doctrine, or Institutional Education...and really SEE CLEARLY what HE SAID our directions should be.  

We have gotten SOOOO FAR away from JESUS being the HEAD and AUTHORITY of the BODY....and desiring a position of "heirarchy at the top" of leadership for ourselves....we have USURPED Christ's position of authority over HIS BODY....HE is the HEAD!!  It is NOT ours to give to other men....and it is certainly NOT ours to take for ourselves.  

We read in Matthew 20 the following:  

Matthew 20;20 Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Him with her sons, kneeling down and asking something from Him.21 And He said to her, “What do you wish?”She said to Him, “Grant that these two sons of mine may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on the left, in Your kingdom.”22 But Jesus answered and said, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?”[d]They said to Him, “We are able.”23 So He said to them, “You will indeed drink My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with;[e] but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared by My Father.”24 And when the ten heard it, they were greatly displeased with the two brothers. 25 But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. 26 Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.27 And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave—28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

Why are we NOT OBEYING the WORDS of JESUS, and choosing to walk around on our "religious" high-horses, putting ourselve "over our brethren"??  WHY are we walking in such pioty and religious pride that we cannot all submit ourselves one to another???  WHY do we not TRUST that the HOLY SPIRIT is a BETTER LEADER and TEACHER than we are?? 

This is some food for thought....stay tuned on future blogs and classes....MORE TRUE "JESUS WORDS" to come....
