Jesus & Nascar

Before the green flag was waived at the Aarons 449 Nascar race today a prayer was offered to God. I often listen to see if public prayers are closed in the name of Jesus. Today I was not disappointed, as a pastor that led the prayer closed it in Jesus’ name.

This morning I referred to John 5:23 “ …He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.” Many people will pray in a public forum and purposely not mention Jesus Christ. To mention the name Jesus Christ is a great offence to many in our politically correct environment. The issue for some is that to mention Jesus means that your prayers are specific to Christianity. However, the Bible clearly states that those who do not honor Jesus do not honor the Father. To pray without recognizing Jesus is an exercise in futility.

In Jesus’ Name Amen
