We are Church for the Rest of Us
Two thousand years ago people thought God was for the Pharisees. The Pharisees were the religious people who claimed moral superiority.
Then Jesus showed up. And EVERYTHING changed.
Jesus claimed to be God, in the flesh, but He hung out with irreligious people who everyone thought to be morally inferior. Jesus was called a “friend of sinners” because He spent time prostitutes and tax collectors and Roman soldiers. And people began to realize that God wasn’t just for the Pharisees, that God was for the rest of us.
Today, somehow people still believe that God is for the religious people who claim moral superiority.
But they’re wrong.
God is STILL FOR THE REST OF US. - Vince Antonucci
