Reflections Along the Jesus Way

January 23, 2024 – Quote for the Day:


“Jesus, God in the flesh, came to serve us, not the other way around. We do not find Jesus running around enforcing a bunch of rules. The primary sense we receive from reading the life and teachings of Jesus is that he loves us and invites us into the kingdom of heaven. The life and teachings of Jesus do not leave us frustrated or depressed, thinking we have never done anything right or that he is upset with us. That feeling comes to us from the kingdom of religion, not the kingdom of heaven. That feeling came (in the time of Jesus) from the Pharisees who condemned, belittled and scorned Jesus and his disciples as well as Jesus’ mission and his teaching.”
