Christian faith and followers of Jesus are not simply on earth because of some sociological convergences but rather the result of faithful, obedient following of Jesus's commission to make disciples

Fear Not

Matthew 10:26-33


"Man’s maker was made man, that He, Ruler of the stars, might nurse at His mother’s breast; that the Bread might hunger, the Fountain thirst, the Light sleep, the Way be tired on its journey; that the Truth might be accused of false witness,the Teacher be beaten with whips, the Foundation be suspended on wood; that Strength might grow weak; that the Healer might be wounded; that Life might die.”

— Augustine  of Hippo, 4th Century


[10] Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the end of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that fills it, the coastlands and their inhabitants. [11] Let the desert and its cities lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar inhabits; let the habitants of Sela sing for joy, let them shout from the top of the mountains. [12] Let them give glory to the LORD, and declare his praise in the coastlands. [13] The LORD goes out like a mighty man, like a man of war he stirs up his zeal; he cries out, he shouts aloud, he shows himself mighty against his foes.

Isaiah 42:10-13 ESV


Oh Praise the One who Paid my Debt and raised this life up from the dead…we run and tell that – Go tell it on the Mountain, Over the Hills and Everywhere…Go Tell it this Christmas Season Jacob’s Well…that Jesus Christ is LORD.
