Jesus said in Matthew 23:8-10, “But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brothers. And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. Neither be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Christ.” (ESV)
We say that we follow Jesus. Do we? Or do we follow the teachings of men? Thousands of denominations exist today. Thousands of books have been written. Millions walk into churches every weekend. How many of these denominations, books, or people simply focus on the words that Jesus spoke and then do what he says?
There is one Way. There is one Truth. There is one Life. And no one comes to the father except through Christ.
“But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:25 (NKJV)
We have divisions because we are following the teachings of man rather than following the teachings of Jesus Christ himself. Let’s become one church, and we do that by following Jesus and what he taught.
