We love our religious pedigrees. I’m a Baptist. I’m an evangelical. I’m a Catholic. I’m Lutheran. The list goes on and on. According to the Center for the Study of Global Christianity (CSGC) at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, there are approximately 41,000 Christian denominations and organizations in the world today. This statistic takes into consideration cultural distinctions between denominations in different countries, so there is an overlapping of many denominations.
I am no different. Given the opportunity, I love to think I’ve been trained correctly on the way of God and Jesus.
Is any of that important to God? Yes and no. God wants me to follow His Son Jesus, the Messiah. God wants me to allow King Jesus to be in charge. Why? Because it is the truth. Jesus is in charge. My religious pedigree and bonafides matters nothing compared to the issue of who is in charge of my life.
