If you are a church goer please think about how your act to those who don’t go to church. Non-believers are looking and watching and sometimes they aren’t impressed. Remember that Ghandi once said he likes our Christ but its the “Christians” he isn’t crazy about.
It’s unfortunate how Jesus is portrayed sometimes. His people don’t give him good press and have made him out to be something He isn’t.
Even those who sentenced Him to die were wanting a “messiah” who was more about military might than peaceful non-violent change. That is what many people seem to want today. They want a soldier not a hippie.
Today there are competing messages as to who Jesus is. I personally want to represent the message of love, peace, inclusion and grace.
How people see Him in the behavior of His people is important. I hope people, especially those who don’t believe will see Jesus in a positive light. In this Holy season I pray that all people will feel the comfort of His loving arms.
One of the holiest things you can do is to be there for family and friends in a time of trouble or loss.
In this Year of Faith, let us remember that faith is not something we possess, but something we share. Every Christian is an apostle.
My dear friends, God loves you, and we know he has chosen you to be his people.
United Methodists see a Jesus who heals, who teaches, who forgives, who restores, and who is just.
Christians are people who have been conquered by Christ’s love.
Here’s a shout out to my fellow Christians who are also Nerdfighters. Keep the faith, keep it nerdy!
