He challenges me that I can do better than how religious leaders approach God’s world (Kingdom). He wants me to start from the knowledge that this is God’s world. He is in charge. It is not a democracy.
Jesus wants me to love God more than anyone or anything. He wants me to love everyone I come in contact in a very real and concrete way.
Jesus knows I can do better and it doesn’t start by emulating religious leaders.Tough but true.
Unless you do far better than religious leaders in the matters of right living, you won’t know the first thing about entering God’s world.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 5 The Message)
