Jesus never lied when he spoke. Yet, sometimes we still find it hard to believe him… and sometimes, we absolutely don’t. (©, 1997-2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

Praying 11

It’s okay to ask Jesus to pray with us. After all, He asks us to pray with Him.  (©, 2006-2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

His Message

Jesus’ message is not: “Don’t do!”, or “Judge and condemn others!” or “Guilt!” or “Shame.”

His message is none of these. It is simple.  It is plain. It is “Love one another, as I love you.”

Believing in Christ

We always make decisions.  Do we believe in Christ, or not? Do we believe what He said or not?  Can He really help? or not?  Do we have to understand His abilities for Him to help? or not?  In life, do we only believe in what we understand? or not?

We can believe in Christ, even though His abilities are beyond our understanding of Christ.

Who understands completely how all the different parts of the world work?  Any one person?  Like computers – who understands all the different parts of the world of computers?  Yet, so many of us use them constantly.

How many of us understand all the theories of physics or chemistry or astronomy and meteorology, medicine, architecture, engineering, music, etc?  Yet we’re involved with all these expecting “someone” to understand it enough to make it work for us.

Why do we then choose to not believe in Christ, in God, or in ourselves simply because we don’t understand?  Christ understands Christ.  God understands God.

Because we want to believe in something we can touch, or see?  What if we step out past our limits and we’re wrong?   To believe in the unseen is to step out past our own confidence.

We find that we had been holding onto a very small world if we step out past our own understanding, because our own understanding is small compared to what is out there waiting to be learned and/or understood.

Believing in something higher than ourselves means also believing that we can love more.  It means that we can care more.  It means that we can forgive more.   Who among us doesn’t know that we have a greater the capacity to love and forgive more than we’ve already done?

Many think believing is of the mind, but I say believing is of the heart – where love, caring, and forgiveness live.  The heart is where God lives.

God 24

No one speaking of judgment and condemnation speaks for God.

No one speaking fear and retribution speaks for God.

The one speaking love and forgiveness, kindness and mercy –

This one speaks for God.

Christ 1

It is possible for the “right” decision and “best” decision to lead someone to pain, suffering or death.

If you don’t believe this, take a look at God’s decision for Jesus to die on the cross.
