Real Jesus

jesusvonnazareth100-_v-gseagaleriexlToday’s gospel passage from Matthew reminds us to be careful to understand and follow the real Jesus, not an invented version of Jesus that asks little of us and makes us comfortable.

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.
I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.
Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away,
not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter
will pass from the law,
until all things have taken place.
Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments
and teaches others to do so
will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven.
But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments
will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.”

The real Jesus call us to account for our actions. The real Jesus require that we step out of our comfort zone.  The real Jesus demands that we love unconditionally.

Are we ready for the real Jesus?
