Post 5 of 6 in a series about Judgmental Christians.
We looked at how we can reach out in love and respect in the last post.
The key word for today is: Grace.
Think about it are we more concerned about being RIGHT than we are about being RIGHTEOUS?
I hope NOT. When we are like this we are very legalistic…we are like the Pharisees. We forget the true goals of the faith because we are too concerned over something silly.
When we truly understand the Gospel and what it is all about, we should be humbled.
Humbled by the message of Jesus.
And humbled by how we are portraying that message today ( the lack of!!!!)
We need to embrace not abandon the broken, the needy. Imagine yourself, once you were lost and in need of Grace and Mercy.
Where is our heart and perspective for the needy. Where is our evangelistic primer?
Where is our heart?
Is our faith so shallow that we are not sharing Christ’s mercy?
Let me leave you with this:
We can not give out something we have not received.
Is our church in a state of so much pride and arrogance that we have forgotten about grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love?
This has got to CHANGE.
