My Jesus, not Yours


I have a personal relationship with Jesus?

Me and My God….

It’s my faith….

 

You notice that there are a lot of singularities in our faith life today. We don’t seem to want to share our faith, or our God.

 

Many of us are under the impression that our relationship with Jesus has no connection to others, what Jesus and I decide is between us, how He treats me affects no one else. Nothing could be further from the truth!

 

We are all part of the one Body of Christ, we all are connected. Your actions or lack of them affect me, and my actions or lack of them. Faith is not a singular act, it is not a solo act, faith is a community act, we celebrate communion, togetherness, not one on one, but rather all together.

 

When did we decide that faith was only a personal thing? When did God become a possession?

 

It’s a sign of the times; we have a culture that does not share, a culture that does not like others involved or invested in others, and a culture that believes that each person is unto them selves.

 

God has never been a God of one, but a God of many, a God of all. Jesus did not come to save just you, but rather to save all.

 

Yes, we need to have a personal relationship with Jesus, but it can not be exclusively personal, it must also be communal in nature. We are all one body, with only one head, Christ…

About Paul Sposite

Paul Sposite - Life Coach I began my career as an instructor. As an instructor there are two basic requirements. You have to know yourself, so you know where you’re drawing your inspiration from. And you have to actively listen to the others, and then respond to the subtext of what they are saying. In learning about myself I started to focus a lot on my students, how they learned, what questions they were asking and how I could best modify my methods to best serve them. I believe that if you use your real life problems/issues as insights to the issues you need to heal, you’ll grow. From my experience in the classroom, creating curriculum and material to support my training, I developed an interest in how people process information. This interest turned into my interest in Life Coaching.

    Paul,
    You hit the ball out of the park on this one my man! Although, I will say that I believe this “personal” aspect of Christianity started at the Protestant rebellion. Faith alone and Scripture alone lead to a privatization of one’s faith or religion.

    Yes, we are called to be “one Body” in Christ. Let us both keep working to that end!

    His grace and blessings to you always.
