No secret buttons

12951312-md

The answer, the way home, is, as the Bible insists, faith in Jesus Christ. There are no secret buttons to push, no magical elixirs to take, no special potions, no chants to recite or charms to handle.

There are no decoder rings
or esoteric theological classes to take
and no mechanical principles
to apply to our lives.

It is not a matter of church membership, water baptism or being religious. The answer is faith—and faith means unconfusion, seeing clearly, discovering and knowing reality in Christ, embracing it, acknowledging it, loving it— responding to Jesus Christ with a serious and hearty and continuous “Amen!”
