Is Jesus really for some countries but against others? Does he champion a certain political party and its agenda? Could he be the CEO of Christianity having come to start a new religion? Can Jesus’ mission be condensed to a fire rescue, for which his recipients escape the fiery furnace of hell only to trade their freedom in this life for chains of religious rules and rituals that bind them until the eternal party in heaven? Should those who believe and receive Jesus expect a life of ease and prosperity from the ultimate Santa Claus? Perhaps he really is for everyone and everything, and we should all just get along.
..maybe, just maybe, Jesus—the real Jesus—is infinitely more than we ever imagined.

Learning about “Christianity” and finding “religion,” can be intimidating and exhausting as a forty-one year-old who has never stepped foot in a church. But I discovered that I did not need a religion or a book of rules. I needed Jesus. Just Jesus, a guidebook I’ve been waiting a lifetime for, introduced me to Jesus, the ONE who calls me to simply BELIEVE! And now I believe. I believe Jesus has been with me, by my side, loving me, all this time...no matter what!
