The faith of Jesus

Thinking today: It’s not faith in Jesus; it’s the faith of Jesus, the stream in which we started swimming in our baptisms. It’s not assent to a system of beliefs, as if Jesus is one item in a doctrinal list, an item that sets the boundary line of who’s in and who’s out. Rather, the faith of Jesus is a surrender, a surrender to a way of life that Jesus himself authentically lived, trusting beyond hope that it leads to life and life to the full. #OpenWelcomingCompassionate
