Other people often put barriers between you and Jesus that aren’t barriers at all. They can be moral barriers, gender barriers, ethnic barriers, religious barriers, time barriers: all kinds of barriers.
People are like mirrors. We look at them and think that we see ourselves in what we see reflected back. If we see things like forgiveness and love, then we believe ourselves to be worthy of forgiveness and love. If, on the other hand, we see unforgiveness and rejection, then we believe ourselves to be unforgivable and unacceptable.
