Jesus didn't call his followers to get together and create another one of those religious social clubs.
His words and life so influenced them to live with a new conviction, to affect and change the world one person, one family, one community, one town at a time, in radical ways. Reflecting His love and truth in a way that touched people of all tribes and tongues spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally.
It's an undercurrent that has shaken and is shaking the world today. If you think Christianity has become superficial, you're right. It has warped into something that Jesus didn't talk about. Don't reject what you have not yet heard or seen. Search out what Jesus really said and meant.
Fight for this right to know the truth. That's where you'll hit the bottom of real joy. The thing you were scouring the world to find. But He's right here, so close to you.
Maybe we just don't listen sometimes.
