Loving facts

Let's get a few things straight:
The church we attend is beautiful. The songs are wonderful, the presentations are cool, but there is one thing that is more than them all:
DO YOU KNOW JESUS?
We can put on all the programs in the world, but that is where they are going to stay: in the world.
YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
The sermons are great, but we must be born again.
The songs are wonderful, but we must be born again.
The poetry is nice, but we must be born again.
Salvation is greater than ritual.
Salvation is more than program.
Salvation supersedes ANYTHING going on in our church.
Salvation supersedes ANYTHING going on in THE Church!
It's not program, it's Jesus!
It's not ritual, it's Jesus!
It's not curriculum, it's Jesus!
Regardless what man, men or denomination comes up with, it's Jesus!
It must be Jesus or, of all men, we are most miserable!
Do you know Jesus?
Denomination is not the answer.
Words to His Servant is not the answer.
Translation isn't even the answer.
JESUS IS THE ANSWER!!
Sure, those tools above might help you FIND the answer, but it must be your heart that ultimately gets you to Jesus.
If it does not get you closer to Jesus, avoid it.
If it does not get you closer to Jesus, get rid of it.
If it does not get you closer to Jesus, rebuke it!
Do you know Jesus?
You must be born again, and Jesus is the only way to be born again!
John 3:16. That's in The Bible. No. That's not a wisecrack. If you know where it is, praise God. If you do not know where it is, I want to help you!
If you do know where it is, help somebody that does not know!
They are very easy to find.
