Choose GOD’s loving way or your way of the world. We can not be a bigot and say we love GOD and HIS son JESUS!!!
You know, for those who do read my blog know I try to encourage people to lean towards GOD the FATHER. In my blogs I aim to say something that will reach a soul to reach out to seek after GOD and His son JESUS.
I at times will be surprised when I get encouraged too from kind people who have read my messages and were encouraged. This makes me feel good even it is one beautiful person.
But last weekend was not what I had expected. See, there are many Christians out there that do love all people as it is instructed in the Bible. Then you have those who claim to love GOD and his son JESUS and not like what they may call “those people”. That can mean anyone not like themselves of any color, place of origin or faith. They want nothing to do with outsiders because they consider them evil and unapproachable. Like those that live in the middle east, or any place in the world that peope do not fit into a white standard. Some white Christians have issues with people like this. They will box “them” all together and say mean, awful, stereotypical things. And this is wrong.
I ran into that sort of thing and it was very upsetting. What makes them assume this is what JESUS would want us to do? How can we tell those anywhere on GODS planet about salvation if you hate them so? This is not a JESUS filled heart. Not at all.
I am still saddened by what these so-called Christians were saying about people unlike themselves , going by their fruit….they were not at all anyone I could say believed in GOD. It was that scary. I can see why some people will say that Christians are not really good people.
Matthew 7:15-20 New King James Version (NKJV)
You Will Know Them by Their Fruits
15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits.Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
Many people want to go to heaven but don’t want to listen to what our GOD is saying with love about loving our fellow man. This means to me we need to show ourselves friendly to ALL people. No matter what they choose to wear, where they come from or the type of lifestyle they choose to live.
Let GOD be the judge of what fate HE will choose. I know may people with different lifestyles. They are polite to me, and we respect each other as how it should be. They know I am a JESUS follower. We are all sinners, every man woman and child so we should never cast the first stone on anyone. Like I say, we have to be there for them if want to be saved and know what it means to be saved. And be there for them if they choose to be saved on their journey of faith.
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
As we are there for them if they choose to learn about JESUS and salvation, we will be giving them a comforting talk to help them. Even those who are saved and maybe going through a rough time right now. Love them as how the word says. Do this with a pure heart. Being good and doing your best to be good takes all that is in you with the help of JESUS.
1 John Chapter 4
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
Many people will disagree with talking to different people, but I do feel as a Christian we will need to use discernment with people and see if they are willing to talk or listen to you. If you say it lovingly and respectful to them and never condemning them like you are judging they will listen. Never judge. Because if you think you are better you are 100% wrong. As I say we are all sinners and we all need JESUS.
Jesus died for all mankind, every man , woman , and child that walked the face of GOD’s earth since Adam and Eve so that we ALL will be saved from our sins!
May you all get a blessing from reading these posts and sharing them as well.
