“Through Jesus we have received grace … this includes you! You are invited to come to him.” — Rom 1:5-6
Many churches teach that Jesus was exclusive and that his love is only meant for Christians. But Paul writes about this Jesus who was waving his arms and yelling, “Over here… everyone is invited!”
Jesus, though he was Jewish, wasn’t tied exclusively to the Jewish faith nor was he trying to start a new religion. Jesus didn’t care if you were Jewish or Gentile. He didn’t care if you were male or female, gay or straight, black or white, rich or poor, successful or a complete failure. He extended his grace to everyone and loved us just as we are. His love was and is unconditional.
Everyone is invited to follow to him. He loves us “Just as We Are!”
