Not the Christ you want, but the Christ you need

CrossTopOfTree2021It is not easy to follow Christ, but His teachings, AND gift of salvation, are what we sinners need.

Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 

– Matthew 4:19

While mailing out our Christmas cards, decorating our Christmas tree and reflecting on this past year, I listened to a message shared by Christian follower/friend Steve Martin on Twitter (see … there are some positive uses for social media). It was from 2012 (I think) by whom I assumed was his church pastor based on a reference in the audio — Mark Anderson <- his book link. I thought it was still timely in setting my mind and focus on the birth of Jesus this Christmas season … and who knows, someone else might agree?
