Jesus' message was not a message of resolutions -- vowing more, trying harder, failing (again), feeling lame. It was a message of REVOLUTION. A revolution of kingdoms. A revolution of wills.
"The time has come! The kingdom of God is near," he would say. "Repent and believe the good news."
Jesus once actually used the phrase "among you." Like it's all around me. An alternative reality.
What will I believe to be true today? How will I think and see the world?
I want to live as if the most powerful, attentive, faithful being in the universe is my Father. That he is surrounding me like the air I breathe. Guiding me moment-by-moment into my best possible life. A life that brings healing to myself, my family and community, and to the world he loves.
