ONE question…

Posted: April 12, 2016 in Uncategorized

What ONE question would you ask your favorite Bible character?
Think about it…if you could just sit down over coffee with a real life biblical person and only ask them ONE question, what would you ask them?

Would you ask…
Moses, what’s your favorite way to prepare manna?
David, what’s your favorite musical style?
Lazarus, so what was it like being dead and then suddenly undead?
Paul, why do you have a problem with the ladies?
Mary, did you know? (Sorry, couldn’t help myself!)

Now, in true biblical fashion, let’s flip it around.
What do you think is the ONE question that they would ask you?
I think I know, I think they would ask you a question that matters.
They wouldn’t ask you a casual question, I mean, c’mon, we have an eternity to talk about your favorite song, lunch or childhood.
They would look you in the eyes and ask you in breathless anticipation THE question…
They would ask you with passion like its the only question that matters (because it is!)
They wouldn’t ask what you have done or achieved or given.
They wouldn’t ask you “So, what are you DOING for the Master?”
They would ask you “So, do you know the Master?”
It’s not about achievement or accolade. It’s not about how hard you work or how good you look.
I don’t think Jesus is impressed by that stuff.
Gut level faith isn’t about performing or proving, it’s about pursuing.
Success isn’t about how much you can do, it’s about how close you can get.

It all starts with ONE really BIG big question…do you know him?

At the end of time, on that day of judgment, many will say to Me, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name? Did we not drive demons out of the possessed in Your name? Did we not perform miracles in Your name?” But I will say to them, “I never knew you. And now, you must get away from Me, you evildoers!” (Matt. 7:22-23)
