I learned that Jesus Christ had died for my sins and was raised again so that I might experience God’s forgiveness and new life in Him. At that moment, I turned my life over to Christ. I prayed, “Lord Jesus, if You can change me, come into me and do it. I sure need to be changed."
Is this, then, what Jesus had in mind when He talked of an “abundant life”? No! But if people have never experienced anything different, they will accept their predicament as normal. They will assume “that’s just the way it is."
I knew the Bible frontward and backward, but that knowledge alone didn’t change my condition. In my experience, Jesus got lost in the Bible.
Lord, I don’t care what the organization that I used to be with taught me. I don’t care what the church I’m in or the denomination to which I belong has taught me. I want You to teach me afresh, all over again. I want to know the truth that You promised would set me free. I’m tired of listening to people. I’m ready to listen to You.
More than anything else, I wanted to know more fully the Person of Jesus Christ whom the Bible reveals. I thank God with all my heart that He led me to find what I was looking for—a return to Classic Christianity.
Christianity is not a religion; it’s a relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ did not come just to get men out of hell and into heaven; He came to get Himself out of heaven and into men!
The issue in salvation is life and death. Jesus Christ, spiritually alive, laid down His life for us. Why? So that He could give His life to us!
Until you rest in the finality of the cross, you will never experience the reality of the resurrection.
There is only one way to determine your identity that cannot be shaken, one foundation that cannot be taken away from you: “I am a child of God.”
We don’t need a good self-image. We need a proper self-image—one that comes from God’s Word.
The most powerful, life-changing power in existence is the message of God’s unconditional love and acceptance in Jesus Christ.
God will never love or accept you one ounce less or one ounce more than He does right this minute. That’s a truth to build a life on!
The goal of the Christian life is not to stop sinning! It is to start trusting.
To be filled with the Spirit is to be totally filled with the knowledge of God’s love and grace in Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ laid down His life for us, so that He could give His life to us, so that He could live His life through us! That’s the entire gospel in a nutshell.
We must first receive God’s unconditional love and acceptance for us before we will ever learn to love Him in return.
You may not know what will happen to you tomorrow, but you can know that the same Christ who loves you perfectly today is already there.
Listen, open the door of your heart, and discover that Classic Christianity is a Person—the living Lord Jesus Christ.

Classic Quote of the Week

Like a "spiritual Las Vegas," the Christian world has built "Tinsel-town in the Desert." It looks pretty on the surface, but it's nine miles wide and one inch deep. It's flashy, it's sometimes exciting, and it will keep you occupied for a while. But every now and then, a small voice in our hearts begins asking, "Is this really what the Lord Jesus had in mind when He talked about an "abundant life"?

From Chapter 13, Classic Christianity by Bob George

In fact, I would go so far as to say that Classic Christianity represents the purest presentation of the gospel message I have ever read.

Bob George radiates a passion for the gospel that is inspirational.  His straight forward presentation of Christ’s grace, like an oasis of cool water in a desert, constantly refreshes those who encounter it.

Thomas Kinkade, Carmel, CA

 

Classic Christianity will open your eyes to the liberating truth of who you are in Christ and what it means to walk in grace. Hundreds of thousands of lives have been transformed by reading this book. It's safe to predict that yours will be too!"

Dr. Steve McVey, author, Grace Walk

 

"Whether we are Calvinist or Armenian we are all interested in the abundant life. CLASSIC CHRISTIANITY explores the complete scope of redemption, including the indwelling life of God!"
