The claims of Jesus are so counterintuitive, so radical that they often catch me off guard; I’ve been a Christian for almost 40 years. One of the most amazing things that he ever said was, “Whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” To help me grasp the meaning of this, I need to put it in simpler terms – maybe something like this: If we believe in Jesus, death cannot kill us. What?! That doesn’t even begin to make sense – until we consider Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
To understand the amazing claims of Jesus, we MUST have the help of God’s Spirit. Apart from his help, such statements of eternal truth just fly over our heads. Please pray with us that the Spirit will work in the hearts of all those who have come to English camp this week to enable us to hear and believe.
