In our first 10 episodes, I wanted to demonstrate the kinds of changes Jesus can make regardless of our starting point. No matter what your spiritual (or other) handicap. Jesus can equip you to run life's race like a champion.
When we go down the control-freak-everything-has-to-be-my-way path, we confuse ourselves with God. When we expect a partner to fulfill our deepest needs, we confuse them with God.
Being human requires humility and grace. Both of which are gifts from the one true God. Gently forgiving and accepting the humanity of others is a Christian virtue. Gently forgiving and accepting our own humanity is also a Christian virtue. So is having the brains and self-respect to remove ourselves from dangerous or abusive environments. The art of keeping the door open without becoming the door mat, that't the art of being human.
Even the most casual observer is aware that differences exist among those of us who claim to follow Jesus. One test of our love of Jesus is how we treat those who differ in areas not clearly defined by Scripture.
