I read this statement today off a Southern Church’s website…
“If you grew up in the US – especially the south – Jesus and the church may well have been the white noise you learned to tune out. A lot of us have been inoculated against Jesus. We take our shots for measles and mumps and a vaccine against Jesus while we’re at it. We hear just enough to think we understand Him from televangelists and earnest (but sometimes misguided small town) Sunday school teachers. We are given diluted versions of the Son of Man; getting just enough to make it nearly impossible for us to fully experience Him.”
How do you respond to that? Do you think it’s true in general? Maybe a more penetrating question is this.’Is it true of you?’
Do you have just enough of Jesus to inoculate you from allowing Him to do the radical life change in you He desires?
