19 Feb WHAT DOES IT MEAN? “No Man Comes to the Father Except Through Me”
(Watch 2 1/2-minute excerpt: ‘What You’re Missing in Life: Your FATHER’) Several of us talked about how human beings treat one another. Jesse looked back in amazement at things he’s done that were wrong. It seems like he should have known they were wrong enough not to do them.
We also discussed John 14:6, where Jesus said, “No one comes to the Father except through me.” How do you go “through” Christ? Some talked about repentance, forgiveness, believing in Jesus Christ. Others talked about being “in the moment,” prayer and meditation.
A Barna Group study says that 59% of millennials raised in the church have dropped out at some point. We must return to fathers, who represent Christ, and love the fathers. Jesse read from John 8:43-45, saying that until you return to the Father, you are of your father the devil. And no one with anger is of God.
