In The Play of Life,What character are you?
Intellectual reasoning, conversations with others and facts alone more often than not, do not cause us to believe. All of the evidence can point to something being true, yet it still takes more than evidence. We are going to see that only one thing removes our doubt and causes us to sincerely believe.
There are many other viewpoints on how to get to heaven. A common theme throughout is to try to be good, do your best and hope it works out. Surely I am not that bad of a person. If I compare myself to Hitler, I am a Saint. If I compare myself to Mother Theresa, I am a self-centered consumer. How do we know how much good, is good enough? If there is a God, who would He compare us to? In the midst of all of the varying beliefs and thoughts, is there really truth?
Mary & John the Baptist
God chooses the foolish things of the world to shame the wise. This means God doesn’t want us because we have it all together or because he cannot do it without us. However, he invites us into the story to be a supporting actor. As we respond in worship, we get to experience the miraculous. When we respond in worship, we become apart of something bigger than ourselves.
Peter & Judas
We walk into a situation assuming one thing to find something else, it can make us angry, frustrated, sad, doubtful, discouraged, even rebellious. We have a choice to make: give up, resist, flee, or persevere, stay faithful, trust? That’s what Peter and Judas were facing as they began to realize that Jesus wasn’t going to meet their expectations. Because of this, both Peter and Judas were faced with a choice: do I trust Jesus, nor not? Do I believe Him, or do I take measures into my own hands?
