Yesterday I mentioned I went to Unclaimed Baggage. What is funny in a small town like Scottsboro there are knock-offs of Unclaimed Baggage. Right across the street there is B & W's Unclaimed Baggage and next door there is Bags Unclaimed Baggage. But there is nothing like the original. The others are just junk. There is very little that you would actually want. At Bags you can get fake Oakley sunglasses (Fakley's). Back to my point yesterday. Jesus is our redeemer. He is the one leaves our baggage behind when we give them to Him. Unfortunately there are Knock-offs of Jesus all around. There are churches who try to convince us we can work our way into God's favor. There are churches who make us jump through hoops in order to get to heaven. There is only one God. I know that offends some people but Jesus said He is the way the truth and the life and no one comes to the father but by Him (John 14:6). Even good churches can lead people down the wrong path by being so busy that we end up carrying the baggage that Jesus told us to get rid of. That is why it is important to know the way to the real thing and avoid the knock-offs!
