More today from my Saturday “Jesus Blog” – a word from Jesus to you…
I never told anyone to start a religion in my name.
I stood against the religious leaders. Still do. I stood for the oppressed and marginalized. Still do.
I told people to love God and love others… and follow me.
That’s all I ask of you.
The past is over, the future is a mystery, all you have is now – and it is in the now that you experience God.
Time is a human concept and I know how your thoughts and hearts focus on the past and worry about the future.
Just be here now.
One step at a time is the perfect way to move through this world. I know you see mountains ahead and they seem high and scary and you try to figure out how you are ever going to get over them. Your thoughts are so on the mountains ahead that you lose sight of the step before you.You miss opportunities to love. You miss opportunities to be loved. You stumble.
I may be leading you on a easy path up or around those mountains – a path you cannot see from your perspective. Or the path may be hard, and I will give you strength.
Stay focused on the now. Take the next step. Follow me. I love you.
You don’t need to try to change. You don’t need to try to be “better.”
Trust the Spirit in you, one step at a time.
Love how I loved. Love who I loved. Now.
