The Jesus Parade
We believe in Jesus-Christ. Did anyone ever tell you that those are two distinct faith affirmations? To believe in Jesus is to honor the one man who walked on this earth. To believe in Christ is to include and honor all of creation. "Here comes everybody," you might say.
That’s what Paul means when he says in various places that Jesus is the "first of many brothers and sisters” or he is leading "a great triumphal parade.” The Christ is the symbolic beginning of the universal procession toward God, love, and life.
We are that procession, and no worthiness can get you there — only a great willingness to join in.
Price of admission: your desire
