Today's Devotional

Reading my devotional this morning set off a resonance in my head that didn't really catch up to me until now. I guess I knew this, but never expressed it. Didn't know how to express it. And without knowing how to express it, then it becomes easy to forget about it.

Jesus Christ isn't the head of our religion. Jesus Christ IS our religion. He's not just the figurehead. Unlike Buddha or Muhammed, he didn't come to show us the way. Jesus Christ IS the way. Without Jesus, there is no Christianity.

I've been reflecting on that today. Jesus doesn't always center in my personal religious beliefs. I need to work on that.

There's an old saying that religion is man's way of trying to reach God. Jesus is God's way of reaching out to man.
