Jesus was a Restorationist

Jesus came to restore the rule of God, not to create a revolution among the people.

Jesus came to restore justice for the poor and the oppressed, not to overthrow the government.

Jesus came to restore the true worship of God in the Temple, not to “occupy” it.

Jesus came to restore the image of God in humankind, not to craft a God that is “relevant” or “religion free.”

Jesus came to heal humanity’s separation from God, not to satiate God’s thirst for punishment.

Jesus was not a revolutionary.

Jesus is a restorationist.

In his life we partake in the life of God.

The source of humanity.

To become one with God.

Our lives intertwined in a divine dance.

To heal the world heart by heart.
