But how do we get there? Is it automatic?
JESUS IS THE WAY
If we do right things we get there!
Jesus’ way is different. You are different! Jesus followers’ motivations are different, passions, goals, etc.
Look out for #1 – or – The first shall be last. Luke 22:26-27
Get all you can, can all you get – or – Give up your life. Matthew 10:39
Believe in yourself – or – Trust in God. Proverbs 3:5-6
Discover yourself – or – Deny yourself. Luke 9:23
Be true to you – or – Seek truth. John 8:31-32
Christianity is not a spectator sport.
Christianity is not a la carte

When your opinion becomes part of your theology, you taint the message.
“Surround yourself with truth-speaking people.”John Powell
Tempered: having the requisite degree of hardness or elasticity.
How do we find the Way? How do we know the Truth? Jesus gave us a “tool.”
