The Jura clock was given to Quebec City by Switzerland for the city’s 400th birthday. The beautiful clock is sleek, modern, and rises more than eleven feet and displays a constellation of gleaming gears and cogs moving seamlessly together. But the famous, or infamous clock has a huge problem- it does not do what it’s supposed to do-keep proper time. It reminds one of religion. Famous for cathedrals, elegant and expensive edifices, anthems, colourful costumes. But religion, like the Jura clock, does not work Why? because religion is too often the effort of people attempting to make themselves look good in God’s eyes. But true biblical Christianity is not a religion, it is a relationship between our Lord Jesus Christ and people who humbly accept God’s assessment of their spiritual condition, and need of a Saviour. This wonderful relationship take place when we accept Jesus’ invitation, “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in.” And billions have found that Bible Christianity works.
