Are You A "JESUS AND" Person?
C.S. Lewis in The Screwtape Letters, talks about one of the Devil’s biggest traps in our lives. Screwtape trains his satanic protégé on a trap he calls “Faith in Christ AND…” our achievements…a great family…our reputation…our prosperity…a thriving ministry… Often it happens that unconsciously, along our faith journey, we begin to think that something else needs to be added to make us good enough in standing with Jesus.
Warren Spector said, “The loneliest moment in life is right after you’ve experienced what you thought to be the ultimate in happiness…and then you suddenly realize THAT it just let you down.” What are you really after at your deepest core level? Is it Jesus?
