Online with God?

When we get online with God through Jesus, the only agenda that really matters is: "Thy will be done." When we hack into heaven, we are challenged to discover something new about the Lord's agenda, not our own.

Fortunately, this access also brings an opportunity - an opportunity to carry God's attitude and agenda into the world. If it is the Lord's desire,  then we will be equipped to work for that salvation. If it is God's will, then we will be shown the way. If it is part of the divine plan, then a door will be opened to us. But watch out: God's view of power and status may be different from our own!

"I am the way, and the truth, and the life," proclaims Jesus. "No one comes to the Father except through me." Christ is the one who gives us access to almighty God, the one who is our channel to God's heavenly home page, and the one who gives us the ability to make a lasting difference in this world. "Very truly, I tell you," says Jesus, "the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these." Belief in Christ gives us access to a power that can change our society for the better.

Because of Jesus, we don't have to hack into heaven.

We have all the access we need.

Jesus gets us online with God, and in line with a divine attitude and agenda.
