Feb 21, 2022: Jesus Can and Has

Robert E. Webber

Jesus is our spirituality. It is his life, death, and resurrection that make us acceptable to God. We cannot love God with our whole heart, soul, and mind, but Jesus can and has. We cannot love our neighbor as ourselves, but Jesus can and has. It is Jesus Christ, therefore, who presents us to the Father, and it is because of him and through him and in him that we are spiritual. Spirituality begins with simple yet profound trust in Jesus.
