More of Jesus is such a simple idea. But I think it is about acting in more love.
Maybe I (maybe we) should go read that red text in the Bible and love people more as it suggests.
Maybe people would see less of us (thank God).
I mean, God loves you so much. I hope you see that one day.
May I never obstruct that view for anyone. Goodness, I got all preachy right before Good Friday, didn’t I?
Depends on the book I read…
That’s our job. It’s always been our job. We’re supposed to just love the people in front of us. We’re the ones who tell them who they are. We don’t need to spend as much time as we do telling people what we think about what they’re doing. Loving people doesn’t mean we need to control their conduct. There’s a big difference between the two. Loving people means caring without an agenda. As soon as we have an agenda, it’s not love anymore. It’s acting like you care to get someone to do what you want or what you think God wants them to do. Do less of that, and people will see a lot less of you and more of Jesus.
