John Wayne and Jesus
Were you raised knowing Jesus and in a good church family? If so, what a blessing! Some folks have never heard the name of Jesus or stepped inside of a church building, and therefore do not know about His saving grace. Maybe your Mama read the Bible to you? maybe your Daddy? maybe nobody at all. Maybe you're somewhere in between John Wayne and Jesus ... a cowboy and a saint. But His Word is available everywhere in the U.S., it is powerful, it is Living and able to save your soul!
God made us in His image and wants us to conform NOT to this world, but to Him. Our purpose in life is to know Him, Love Him and share Him ... so simple yet not always easy. 1John 2:6 - “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.”
How do you get to know Jesus? Read His Word. Study His Word. Meditate on His Word. Memorize His Word. Live His Word and keep it in your heart so you can share it with others. Jesus IS The Word. Psalms 119:160 - “Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.”
Daddy was a cowboy, hard as a rock. Mama, she was quiet as a prayer. Daddy would always tell me, "Son, you gotta be tough.” Mama would kiss my cheek and say, “Play fair.” I did my best to make them proud of me, but it's never been an easy place to be … somewhere between Jesus and John Wayne … a cowboy and a saint, crossing the open range! I try to be more like You, Lord but most days I know I ain't.
Wherever you fall on the 'knowing Jesus' spectrum, it is a process. When you are spiritually born, you begin to desire the ‘milk’ of the Word, as a baby desires milk. As you begin to grow spiritually, God will feed you more and more. So even if you’re more like John Wayne than Jesus right now, keep on keepin’ on. Pray and ask for God's wisdom. The goal is always JESUS!
