Finding yourself in Jesus… not religion.
That’s the new tagline I’m using on the blog, and I thought I would give a little explanation. (I’m still toying with it, so please feel free to offer suggestions in the comments.)
I felt that the previous tagline was more about my own journey, and I wanted something that would connect more with potential readers. In other words, I want the blog to be about helping others more than just journaling my own thoughts.
As I’ve done some reflecting on this, I really feel a burden for those who have left “church” (the typical American version, anyway), and/or want to follow Jesus in a deeper way. So those two topics will be my focus at this time.
I’ve also found, at least in my experience, that many people following Christ do not know who they are in Him. There is a spiritual identity crisis in the church today. So many people are trying discover who they are and what they are supposed to be doing with their life. And without the understanding that our true identity is in Christ, many people are left to struggle in their own power to try and answer these questions.
What I’ve experienced is that walking away from religion and pursuing Christ as All in All results in discovering who you really are. Not only that, I’ve found a new source from which I live my life.
WARNING: Learning to live by the life of Christ will be deadly to religion in your life. In fact, all things will begin to appear pale in comparison to Him.
I’m planning to write more about all of this here on the blog, and I hope you will find it helpful and join in to the conversation. Until then…
