Jesus brought a message

by Colin Dexter

Jesus brought a message that spoke to the deepest longings of the human heart to become not simply conformed to a religious subculture but transformed into “new creatures”. instead of focusing on the boundaries, Jesus focused on the centre, the heart of spiritual life. When asked to identify what the law is about, Jesus response was simply “Love God, Love people”. He names a fundamentally different way of identifying who are the children of God:” do they love God, and do they love the people who mean so much to Him?”
