If you’re going to pick a group of men to be your disciples, would the first four you choose be hard nosed fishermen? Two of which are nicknamed Sons of Thunder? (cue the Harleys, head on down the highway) Another great example of how the Lord doesn’t look at the outward appearance but He looks at the heart! The Apostle John changed from a rowdy biker to the disciple known for love. His book and letters give us an intimate knowledge of Jesus, and studying his gospel is a great way to start the new year. Right off the bat, John leaves no doubt about who Jesus is and all He has done. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him, nothing was made that was made.” That is a lot to get your head around. Some people can’t, some churches can’t, but Jesus is in all and through all things. He is the head of the church. A church without Jesus is a headless church, don’t go there! At CCC, we do everything we can to promote Jesus, but don’t only rely on us! Spend personal time with Him, be intimate with Him, share your cares, your fears, your hopes, your dreams. No more holding back. Make this the year to truly be real with the Lord!
