The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
2 Corinthians 5:16 (It’s the second part of this verse that is relevant to us here.)
Hebrews 11:1, 6 (We come to Christ as we come to God, because Christ is God.)
1 Peter 2:4 (Note how the “coming to Him” phrasing matches to the “comes to God” phrasing in Hebrews 11:6. Thus Peter and his fellow disciples had to learn how to come to Jesus by faith, as they had previously come to God, and could no longer go to Jesus in the flesh.)
