For some reason, many Christians see themselves as the “moral police” of society. But Jesus has something better in mind for his followers… a way to experience love, peace, and hope and to share it with the world.
What if life is meant for more than working for more money in order to accumulate more stuff? Maybe life becomes more when we give more of it away.
One of the first words that usually come to mind when we hear “Christianity” or “church” is boredom. That’s understandable, but it wasn’t always this way. What happened? Can you really experience the excitement and adventure the first Jesus Followers experienced? You can.
Religion tells us that to be accepted we must meet an unattainable standard of do’s and don’ts. This causes us to hide our true selves in order to find acceptance. Jesus came to dismantle this horrible cycle and made a way for us to authentically connect with others while being our authentic selves.
Every part of our life gives us something to fear. This is a dangerous world and there always seems to be something new to be afraid of. We can try to ignore, numb, or control our fear but that only makes things worse. There is a better way. A way that allows us to experience peace and confidence no matter what is coming at us.
