One big thing we need to learn as Christians is to watch what we say.
Non-believers base Christianity on hearsay. They donít judge the Christian,
they judge Christianity. I know itís not fair, but this is one of the sacrifices we have to make as Christians. I had a friend who once said that he didnít go to Church because Christians think they are better than everyone else, and they are too judgmental. I am pretty sure we have all heard this at some point or the other. We just have to be extremely careful about the way we portray ourselves around non-Christians because they take most of the things we say in and judge everyone else based on that.
When Jesus was on earth, he didnít even have a place to live. He walked around
everyday hoping to find a good Samaritan that would open his/her house to him.
He was the epitome of humility. Non-believers saw this, they almost always
believed. We need to follow his example and humble ourselves. We have to be
understanding when it comes to nonbelievers. ďLet no corrupt communication
proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good for the use of edifying, that
it may minister grace unto the hearersĒ
We canít look at people weaknesses and judge them because you donít do what they
do. If we walk around with this mentality, we will never win any souls unto
Christ. Take heed and use your words and actions with care.
Stay blessed and spread the word.
