I would like to meet the hurting, the heartbroken, the confused, the pain stricken, the unloved, the overly intimate, the addicted, the immoral, the deprived, the broken, the lost to hope, the habituate, the homosexual, the pederastic, the people who are on the ground bleeding emotional strife and in need of a loving hand that evokes the presence of Jesus Christ. Despite what media and a few misleading people have led you to believe Christians do not hate sinners, we hate sin.
In the Bible, Mark 12:28-31 we are told that the most important commandments from God are: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
I can promise you that in my company(friendship) you will never experience anything other then what was just stated. As my Senior Pastor at Big Valley Grace Community Church put it: “This Church is a hospital for recovering sinners…” Nobody is perfect… I am no better then you and you are no better then I am. No Christian can ever tell you that he or she is better then you. If they do, or make you feel like they are then they do not love the same God that I do, they love themselves. 1John 3:7 7 “Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous…” Do not let a self-righteous person come between you and the love Jesus Christ has for you. Romans 3:23 tells us, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Ephesians 1:7 says that “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace”
I will walk with you to the foot of the cross and hold your hand while we both cry out to God and hand over our entire lives to Jesus Christ who can forgive and begin to heal our broken hearts. Romans 10:9 tells us “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
I wrote this and placed it on The MySpace Devo’s Myspace profile. I mean this with all my heart. We are all hurting in different ways. I encourage Christians to live a righteous life as we are called to live.
