Jesus told them this parable, but they did not understand what he was saying to them. So Jesus said again, “I tell you the solemn truth, I am the door for the sheep.” John 10.6-7 NET.
Jesus’ teachings are so simple, they go over the head of people who are looking for politics, ritual, tradition, or other human constructs. The truth is that Jesus is Leader and Savior.
For to me, living is Christ and dying is gain. Philippians 1.21 NET.
Faith in Christ is personal, as well as universal in its reversal of worldly values and in the banning of human fear and anxiety. The future is guaranteed. The present is given meaning. Life is fulfilling. The most wonderful relationship of all, with Christ, brings peace and stability.
And Jesus ordered them, “Watch out! Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and the yeast of Herod!” Mark 8.15 NET.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8.1 NET.
All people sin. Sin condemns—it separates us from God. God offers us forgiveness. The path to forgiveness is clear: it is in Christ. Scripture is clear on how to get there. And stay there.
The purpose of this enlightenment is that through the church the multifaceted wisdom of God should now be disclosed to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 3.10 NET.
The church of Jesus Christ, the one and only church, Ephesians 4.4, is in the center of God’s great plan of salvation. It is the theme of this letter. The church is God’s shining star in the spiritual universe. He makes his purpose known through it — through his people.
