Fellowship of Saints and Sinners

Fellowship of Saints and Sinners


If you could ask Jesus anything…

"If this were my only shroud, I would be much less misunderstood- hence the long face."

We are about to start a new series on “epithets” for Jesus. “Who do you say that I am?,” Jesus asks his disciples (Matthew 16). Which might be a question for us, too. Who is Jesus to you and me? A nice guy who lived his life well? A buddy? A Jewish rabbi? An older brother? A martyr? A prophet? Or, God Himself? We’ll look at all of the names Jesus either gives himself or gets called by all sorts of people, with a view to getting to know Jesus and our own hang-ups about Jesus a little better.

But for starters, I have a question: If you could ask Jesus anything that relates to who he is, what would you ask him? Join the conversation on our Facebook page, “Fellowship of Saints and Sinners.”

    To ask one question is like asking a child to pick one candy from a candy store. So many just one…If I could I would like to know on your final moments hours on this earth what pained you most? Was it those who could not understand your love or those who did but did not understand the power of it or was it that you wished more time to walk sided by side with the broken and lowly I ofton wonder what was the most painful part . Your tears are precious as ours are to you
