Life in Christ; Believe and Follow Jesus



It is encouraging to hear a clear, concise call to the Christian life.  This one is almost 600 years old, yet still fresh and filled with faith:

“Believe the Gospel, that is, believe the joyful news of divine grace through Jesus Christ.  Cease from sin; manifest repentance for your life in the past; submit obediently to the Word and will of the Lord, and you will become companions, citizens, children, and heirs of the new and heavenly Jerusalem … Walk according to the Spirit and not according to the flesh. “

From The Complete Writings of Menno Simons (1496-1561) .  Menno Simons was an Anabaptist religious leader.  His followers became known as Mennonites.
