The more I read the gospels, the more I realize how Peter’s reaction to Jesus asking if he also wanted to go away echoes what many of us Christians believe in.
If we wouldn’t follow Jesus, to whom would we go?
Even from a logical standpoint based purely on worldly ideas, there is no one else that is worth following in this world. And things here ain’t getting any better!
I don’t know about you, but I consider myself extremely blessed for believing. Because believing and having faith are not my merit, but the fruit of God’s grace in me.
What have I (and you) done to deserve such a blessing that allows us to transcend the limits and struggles of this lifetime? Nothing!
We are looking at eternal life without any merit whatsoever coming from a world where merit determines who you are, what you can do and how far you can go.
So let’s celebrate the way, the truth and the light everyday through love.
Because God is love.
