Jesus calls us to believe in him. He is the truth, the way and the life. He asks all who are burdened and heavy laden, to find rest in him. By trusting Jesus we will rest in God’s peace. The New Testament is filled with such messages. It is the Christian message.
Trust only happens when I love. I am asked to believe that God loves me, which is no easy task—to really believe and live my life accordingly. Jesus, fully human, fully divine makes it possibly for me to believe and to trust. It is the Christian journey.
The headline in today’s Boston Globe quotes Donald Trump saying, “Believe me.”Trump and I are on a different page. Trump and Jesus are in a different book.
