The End of Religion as we know it

Infant Jesus and John the Baptist, Museo del Prado


….Jesus is.

Note this verse.  Actually note the last sentence.

11 This was Jesus’ first miracle, and He did it in the village of Cana in Galilee. There Jesus showed His glory, and His disciples put their faith in Him  (John 21:11, CEV).

Jesus reveals his glory to his disciples and for his disciples (that includes us followers of Jesus) that spelled the end of religion.  That’s not just for them.   That is forever.   Jesus is now the Way (to eternal life), the Truth (no other is need and no other compares) and He is the Life (the rich life now and the source of all life that takes us into eternal relationship with Him).

The book of Hebrews tells us (if we did not realize this already), blood sacrifice is no longer needed.   Jesus made the sacrifice once for all time when He atoned for our sins.   This is the reality that we are living by faith in Him.   Let’s live it and enjoy it.  Let’s proclaim it to the rest of the very needy (in so many ways) world.  It is His grace which has allowed us to see His glory and it is His grace that transforms our spirits as we see His glory and it is His grace that allows us to live as we do before others.

What a wonderful way to live.
