The Beginning or the End ~ April 10

The Beginning or the End

Does it really matter?

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. Galatians 1:6-7

The perverting of the gospel of Christ; I’ve mentioned that very thing several times in the past, yesterday being one of those times. I spoke of God taking away the rules, and I’ve mentioned it on occasions when I talked about grace. Perversion of the gospel is, unfortunately, an unavoidable topic; one that has been around from the beginning.

Beginning? Or end? When Jesus died it was indeed the beginning—the beginning of a new and wondrous relationship between man and God—but it was also the end. It was the end of the relationship with works as a means to salvation. And yet, many—right from the get-go—began to revert to the God of rules and regulations.

We must keep our faith in God as simple as it truly is. If we allow ourselves to be pulled here and there by every teaching and philosophy, we will indeed become confused. God loves us—we love Him. If someone or something begins to confuse us, we should immediately return to that basic truth. We should turn our eyes upon Jesus. It is there we will find the answer.
