“Truly WEiRD” By Zach Wood John 14:6
This passage seems a bit narrow-minded to a lost world
around us.Jesus doesn’t say He is a
way, a truth and a life that could be considered living.He is very specific and firm in making this
statement.If anyone is to follow the
true path of life, they must follow Him.No tolerance for following another religion or any other god.He is the only way, truth and life.Period.
If you want to live a set apart life, then we must live in a
“WEiRD” way apart from the world flow.From the book by Craig Groeschel titled “WEiRD”, he talks about being
set apart and different from the world and it’s flow.This passage explains that following Jesus is
going to definitely set us apart from the pattern of this world.Many people probably aren’t going to be
receptive when we first explain to them that Jesus is the only true way in
life.That is very narrow-minded and not
It is easy for us to follow the wide gate that leads to
destruction, but harder to follow the true way of life of Jesus and enter the
narrow gate, which is much less popular and the cause of much ridicule, mockery
and possibly persecution.
It’s time for us to be WEiRD and show the world there is a
different way to live and it’s the only true way.He is the ONLY Way, the ONLY Truth, and the
ONLY Life.That is truly WEiRD!
