About Being Loved
Jesus almost shrugs off the question about paying taxes to Rome and says, in effect, "Let me tell you what really matters. You are stamped with the image of God. Are you giving yourselves back to God?"
Christianity has gotten off track by linking religion almost exclusively to moral behavior. It is certainly important that we behave ourselves. But it is nowhere near as important as growing in our faith conviction that our God loves us and desperately wants us to love him.
The Gospel of Jesus is not about being good or bad.
It's about being loved.
