The future always has been and always will be unknown. Often this fact creates fear and anxiety. But what if we could walk into the unknown with confidence and peace? The way forward is not as complicated as we might think.
We all know that feeling when we’ve eaten too much junk and how it affects our physical health. Many of us are feeling something very similar in our emotional and spiritual health right now. Maybe it has to do with what we’ve been allowing our hearts and minds to consume. How can we change our “diet” to improve our emotional and spiritual health? The answer can improve your entire view of the world around you.
If we’re honest the religion most of us have experienced is often empty and lifeless. That’s why Jesus not only rejected religion but brought something completely different and so much better. Following Jesus isn’t about religious routines and rituals… it’s about experiencing a true and meaningful life now and forever.
Religion makes us feel we are always one opinion, mistake, or sin away from being rejected. This makes us either hide who we really are, work really hard to stay in line, or simply walk away from the whole idea. Jesus gave us a better way. A way free of rejection and full of healing.
Religion and rules. They usually go hand-in-hand and are used for the powerful few to control those ‘below’ them. Jesus created a new way… a better way. A way that prioritizes people over rules. A way that has provided freedom for millions of people.
