I saw where someone said they wanted to leave the Jesus stuff. My first thought was sadness. What could have happened to make this person not want to have anything to do with Jesus? Jesus is love. Something happened to completely turn this person away from Jesus.
Then I started thinking that there is a whole world of people who feel this same way. They have been hurt in the name of Jesus so badly that they want nothing to do with Jesus. This makes my heart hurt.
In this life, we all make mistakes. It is my prayer that if you have ever experienced hurt in the name of Jesus, that you will give Him another chance. Know that He loves you and He wants to have a relationship with you.
I understand that you and I may never agree on anything in this world. I understand that you may never agree with my life or why I do the things that I do. But, I will always love you because Jesus loves you and I hope that you will always feel love in everything I do.
If we love Jesus, then we love others as well. Why? Because He loves them and He calls us to love others. We can disagree and still love. We can not believe the same and still love.
Please know that we are human. Just because we are Christians does not make us sinless. We strive every day to sin less, but fall short. Know that our shortcomings show how loving Jesus truly is. That He forgives us and never gives up on us.
Christians, it is time to get busy loving others so that no one ever feels like turning away from Jesus.
Turn to Jesus, He never fails.
