Reflections Along the Jesus Way
May 23, 2023 – Quote for the Day:
“… make no mistake, there are so many in our world who are not only defined physically as hungry, thirsty, naked, sick and imprisoned (Matthew 25:34-40), but those words define their spiritual state as well. There are many who are spiritually hungry, because they are being fed religious junk food – many who are spiritually thirsty, because they have not yet been given the true Water of life.
Many are classified as spiritual strangers because they have been pronounced as worthless or unfit or unrighteous by a religious institution. Others are spiritually naked, who desperately need the spiritual clothing only Jesus can provide. This sad old world is filled with the spiritually sick and imprisoned, finding themselves in such a predicament because a toxic spiritual teaching or church is making them sick, because authoritarian, legalistic ideas and leaders are controlling them and preventing them from experiencing freedom in Christ.”
