Jesus is the savior of the world.
Not because he is God's Begotten Son.
Not because of his magical name.
Not because he has power and authority.
Not because he died on the cross.
Jesus is the savior of the world because he taught that God is Love and we should love God and love our neighbor. He taught that we should not judge others but love even our enemies.
He is truly the son of a reconciling God.
And this is what it means to be a follower of Jesus:
To love God and love God in our neighbor, love God even in our enemies.
And to draw everyone into loving communion with God our Heavenly Father.
It is God's Will that we love one another.
This may well lead to the cross.
