Who or What?

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
John 14:6  

Is Christianity a "Who" or a "What"?  When missionaries cross an ocean to see Christianity grow in a new place, do they carry accumulated knowledge about what Christianity is or do they carry someone with them?

The difference between Christianity and all other religions is that Christianity is not words about words.  It is the word that became flesh and dwelt among us and now dwells in us.  Christianity is a "Who" not a "What".

When a missionaries make a disciple they take them to the living Jesus not a body of knowledge accumulated over time. They baptize the new believer in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  They baptize them into "Who" not "What".

Never take your eyes off of Jesus.  He is everything the Father has for all of us and He now lives in us.  Take people to Jesus and leave them there.
