Jesus Blog: You Don’t Need The Rules

Jesus Blog: You Don’t Need The Rules April 11, 2015


More today from my Saturday “Jesus Blog” – a word from Jesus to you…

Did you know that I never told anyone to write down the things I said?

Did you know that I never told anyone to start a religion called Christianity?

So what did I tell people?  I told them to love God, and love others – and I tried to be an example of how to be with and love people – especially those who needed me the most.

But now there is a lot of talk among church people that you need to follow the rules of the Bible if you want to be “right with God.” 

I don’t want you to focus on Bible rules—they will only lead you astray.  Rules-focus, behavior-focus only increases bad behavior and shame and guilt! It steals your freedom and your joy.

The law is in the Bible only to lead you to me. Once you know me, you no longer need the rules.

I far exceed the rules! 

The Spirit of God will lead you and teach you and guide you in all things. And each journey to know me is unique. Because you are unique.

Focus on me and you will experience life bigger than you could ever have imagined!

Follow me.
