What's Your Perspective?

Gaining the proper perspective on life’s events is critical to good decision making. If perspective is skewed, the information by which we deduce reality becomes unreliable and will sadly bring us to wrong conclusions.

When Jesus was beginning His ministry, a new disciple named Philip brought Jesus his friend named Nathanael. Jesus supernaturally conveyed His interest by giving Nathanael a vision of the future. He said, in John 1:51, “I tell you the truth, you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

Christ was referring to the dream Jacob experienced (Gen 28:12-16) in which angels were descending and ascending upon a ladder. Removing 1700 years of ambiguity, Jesus identifies Himself to Nathanael as that ladder. He would be the person upon which people would ascend to gain regular access to heaven—using Him as the “Way” perspective on life should obtained. So, when you are confused, climb the Jesus Ladder, talk to God and that should help you to really live right and live well…

Confessing & Acknowledging Christ

Just a few years ago everyone used to carry wallet photos of their family in order to proudly display them to others. Today, we show digital photos displayed on our phones.

It is generally normal for people to be proud of their nuclear family. Yet, many folks find it hard to joyfully talk about members of their spiritual family—namely our elder brother Jesus (Heb 2:11). In that regard it is important to note that Christ does not look favorably upon people (for whom He sacrificed both privilege and blood to redeem) who refuse to identify with Him. In fact, He says in Matt 10:32-33, “…everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.”

So the next time you have an opportunity to brag on your family, pull out the verbal pictoral of what Jesus has done for you. Then, listen carefully, for you might hear Him enjoying good memories as He and the Father pour over pictures of you. Live right, live well…
