Jesus Christ met people where they were . . . not as they “ought to” be. His enemies misunderstood Him, but they couldn’t ignore Him. They hated Him, but were never bored around Him. Jesus was the epitome of relevance. Still is.
From Hebrews 8:10: “This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”
