"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
Jesus came into Earth by the power of Heaven. He was difficult for the people of his generation to recognize because he didn't fit the religious cookie cutter image they expected. He had no special religious title, in fact, he was considered the son of an illegitimate birth, a carpenter by trade, but not anyone of esteemed reputation or honor. But the Son of God, the Messiah, is who he was. He walked with and demonstrated a kind of unconditional Grace, Love, Healing and Power the world had never seen. Some rejected it...many rejected it. Some marveled at it, but still, did not believe. But then there were those, who despite all the things they had done to make them "unclean" they heard him say their name along with..."Jesus still loves you" ...and they Believed.
Jesus loves you.
God doesn't see you as a "work in progress". He sees you complete right now. He loves you 💯 percent right now regardless of future growth.
He isn't looking for a cookie cutter image to fit into religion. He is only looking for your heart. Because of His nature, he cannot be recognized with the eyes, but only the heart. ~Nicole
