More today from my Saturday “Jesus Blog” – a word from Jesus to you…
Some of you have lost your way. You think you need to defend me, and defend God’s word — draw lines around it, debate people about it.
Just follow me, trust me, rest in me.
I didn’t ask you to manage the world, or decide who’s in and who’s out, based on your understanding. That’s way too big a job for you!
I didn’t ask you to start a religion in my name.
I’ve given you one job: love. God and others.
That’s all I want you to do.
And by love others, I mean to feed them, clothe them, comfort them, encourage them, accept them… love them. Be with them, cry with them, laugh with them.
Enjoy them. Respect them. Love them.
All of them.
