Jesus was a rule breaker.

He was a radical, game changing, controversial presence - and he got people worked up.

There were reasons for the rule-breaking - it was never just for the sake of chaos - but if you didn’t understand what exactly Jesus was up to - or the fact he was the son of God - he must have seemed like a really wild person - someone you’d want to watch!

It makes me wonder - where is God breaking in here and now that I’m uncomfortable with - am I resisting a new idea or person because I’m too freaked out by the newness?

How can we be open to the in-breaking of God?
