Back in the 60’s Soul singer Dobie Gray had a hit song called “I’m in With the In Crowd.” I suppose most of us grew up wanting to be in the “in crowd.” Truth is many have the wrong definition of what the “in crowd” is.
If you trust and follow Jesus you are accepted into the only “in crowd” that matters. Everything else is temporary. Jesus made everything new. Man-made rules and religion became passé when Jesus defeated death and sin on the cross.
“Religion says, ‘I obey; therefore I am accepted.’ Christianity says, ‘I’m accepted, therefore I obey.’”(Timothy Keller)
“He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.””
