I’m pretty much referring to Christians, but this can apply to any religion or belief structure.
As a Christian, I have fallen into this trap. I’ve placed an unneeded weight on my shoulders, as if changing people’s hearts was actually possible by my strength alone. Man, was I wrong!
Winning, or attempting to win an argument is very different from having a loving conversation.
What if we all actually trusted the God that we serve? What if, instead of trying to be “spiritual superheroes”, we actually just let Christ’s love flow through us?
Afterall, it’s not our job to save souls, that’s God’s job. All we’re called to do as “Christians” is to share Jesus and live a life that represents Him…..that’s it. It’s simple really.
We get so afraid though. We’re afraid of rejection, of not knowing enough, of offending somebody. All the while, we forget that our Creator is alive and well. We limit His power because of our own infirmities and shortcomings.
Here’s the honest truth: GOD DOESN’T NEED OUR HELP TO REACH PEOPLE. HE ALLOWS US TO JOIN HIM IN HIS MISSION.
If Jesus Christ has changed your life, share it, live it! Along with the folks who reject Him, there are those seeking truth. God has set folks in your path for a reason.
Many people will reject Jesus and His teaching. People may reject you and I as well. It’s ok, it really is! Love ’em anyways.
Sadly, those who reject Jesus are often shunned by those who claim to believe in Him. That goes against the very essence of Jesus’s teachings and it’s not right.
As far as you and I are concerned, let’s just share, love and let God take care of the rest. There’s freedom in that.
