BLOG POST – JesusNext

On the October 28, 2014 blog I presented a simple idea called JesusNext. I suggested that this idea could direct our efforts as Christians and respond  to anything that faced us in this world. Today’s blog is a summary page for this idea. I will refer to this summary sheet in the future, but at this time, it is meant to stimulate thought, evoke action, and create a space to worship our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

  1. Jesus

  2. Love

JesusNext

  1. Jesus
    • GOD
    • Lord and Saviour
      • John 14:6 “I am the truth the way and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”
  2. Love
    • Everyone; unconditional
      • Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

Jesus replied, “’Love the LORD your GOD with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and the greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

  • Matthew 5:44 “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”

JesusNext: Initial Thoughts to Consider

  1. Simple: Transferable, Translatable, Teachable (measureable), Clear Objective (more Jesus, more love)
  2. Unifying: Non-denominational, concentrate Christian resources, answer to Jesus’ prayer (John 17:11)
  3. Focus on core of Christianity: A base to explain faith, practice faith, and grow in belief
  4. Jesus: Demonstrates, defines, and directs love
  5. Jesus: What gets you to heaven? Who you know or what you do (love)?; Faith vs. works
  6. Love: Greatest Command, All Law and Prophets hang on two commands of love, and Holistic love
  7. Love: Renews our minds from: “Who do I love?” to “How do I love?” ; not judgemental
  8. Love: leads us to Jesus: when we fail to love we need a Saviour to forgive
  9. Love: Rules confuse; More virtuous you are the less rules you will need
  10. Love: Not Heretical (false prophets, chief of priests, teachers of the law, and elders)
  11. Jesus and love (JN): leads to sanctification, discernment, and ultimately heaven
  12. Revival: Power of GOD, through Jesus Christ, may assist us as we follow Him and greatest command
  13. Power: Overcome opposition with strength of Jesus and His greatest command (Romans 8:31-39)
  14. Evangelistic – clear understanding of Who directs our efforts
  15. Eternal: These lessons will be carried to heaven where there will be 100% Jesus and love
