Knowing God Through Jesus & His Ethics

We are followers of Jesus. We call ourselves “Christian” which means little Christ. For some of us, we may relate more to Jesus than to God. Jesus, as someone who once lived on this earth, may feel more approachable and understandable to us. Some of us may have had the experience of giving our hearts to Jesus or being “born again.” Our primary way of knowing God is through our relationship with Jesus.


For some of us, the Way of Jesus, that is the ethics that he taught, is our anchor point in life. We may or may not feel a sense of God’s presence, but we have a deep commitment to the principles that Jesus taught and with which he lived his life. “Love your neighbour, welcome strangers, love your enemies, do good to those who persecute you,” may be the foundation for our way of living. In Romans 12:9-21, the apostle Paul gives a wonderful summary of the teachings of Jesus. Early followers of Jesus called themselves people of “The Way.” The recognized that the Way of Jesus demanded something of them and sometimes put them at odds with others and with the Roman Empire. Still, they were determined to live this Way, because they saw the hope and blessing it brought to their lives and to the lives of others.


How do you relate to Jesus, as a follower of his Way?


With love and blessings,

Rev. Susan & Rev. David
