Why Christianity?

Written by Dan King.

What did Jesus say?

When Jesus walked on this earth he said some pretty crazy things. One of the more controversial things he said was recorded by his best friend John in his biography of Jesus’ life.

Jesus said to his friend Thomas “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”.

It’s a pretty big call isn’t it.

Jesus says he is the only way to God, the truth and the life.

As I have considered the Christian faith, these three things (way, truth and life) have really shaped my journey and faith in Him.

Here’s why…

God is a Shepherd

Written by from fervr.net.

I grew up in the city, so i have no clue about sheep, goats, 'kids', or lambs (I don't even know the difference between each of the 'types' that I've just listed!). But in the culture that Jesus walked around in, there were sheep and shepherds all over the place. So he used sheep and those who cared for them - shepherds - as a "real life" illustration of how God interacts with you and I.

"Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our maker;
for he is our God and we are the people of His pasture,
the flock under His care."
Psalm 95 vs. 6-7
