Its’s All About Jesus
Lost And Found: Losing Religion, Finding Grace by Kendra Fletcher is a powerful little book exploring the difference between religion and relationship.
Religion presents us with rules. We try to work out our salvation. We focus so much on ourselves and our ‘doing’ that we lose sight of God. “We loved our religion… more than we loved our Saviour.”
Relationship says it’s all about Jesus. It’s all about what Jesus has done. Our hope, our lives, everything is tied up in Jesus. He is the centre. “Only one thing matters: Jesus.”
Kendra Fletcher shows how easy it is to lose sight of Jesus in our busy lives. “We lost our way because our way was paved by our own works.” We become self sufficient and it takes a crisis (or several) for us to realise – if Jesus is all you have, you have all you need. There is no one else you can call on.
The big question is… where is your identity? If it is tied up in anything but Jesus, it is in the wrong place.
As Christians we need to offer the world hope and not a list of rules and regulations.
Lost And Found was a very powerful, very honest account by Kendra Fletcher of a time of crisis and discovery. Thank you Kendra for sharing.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
