I’ve been thinking lately about how we seem to focus on the epistles of the New Testament rather than focusing on the words of Jesus. If I’m supposed to be a follower of Him, I think I should be concentrating on what he actually had to say himself. I’m not dissing Paul or Peter (maybe Peter) I just have been thinking lately I should focus on the source.
It’s hard though, I don’t like what Jesus has to say a lot of the time – and it’s difficult to make sense of it all.
Take the “kingdom of God” for instance. Jesus spoke about the kingdom being here and now – and within us. Many of His parables were intended to help us understand what this meant. I’ve been endeavoring to contemplate this for awhile – I think I’ll get started.
