Once I realized a religion could not save my soul, I started pursuing a relationship with Jesus. To me, his blood stained body is more beautiful than any stained glass window. It reminds me that God has not called me to decorate my faith, but to declare it. So I stopped raising my communion cup to toast him and I started taking communion because I love him.
"I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."
-Jesus (John 15:9-13)
