They Haven’t Met Jesus! They Met You, and Don’t Like YOU!
“Just had to defend my faith in a grocery store, a guy just talking junk about Christians, faith…don’t mess with my savior man.”
Those Outside the Kingdom Need to See
When we make it our mission to “defend” the Gospel, what we do is “Offend” with the Gospel. I’ve never seen anyone offended into a relationship with Jesus. We must show others who God IS before telling them what God SAID. When we unload our offense at someoneÂ becauseÂ they have said or acted in a way that we don’t like… It’s NOT OK! They aren’t in the Kingdom, we can’t expect them to act any other way. Show them theÂ characterÂ of Jesus….
NOBODY can “Mess with your Savior”
We should never feel we have to call people out because we think they are “hating on Jesus.” The reason they are “Hatin on Jesus” is because some rebel in the name of Jesus was hatin on them first! It’s not that they don’t like Jesus…
They have never met Jesus! They have met You! They don’t like YOU!
So stop telling them you represent Jesus! Please! More harm is done to the Kingdom with words in the name of “defending” the Gospel. Just “Man Up” act like “The Man” of Jesus, and not like an idiot “for Jesus” and the Kingdom will thank you.
That is all…
