I have been challenged or should I say I have challenged myself after reading
I think it says everything that can be negative about religion and very little about Christ – Jesus came to save us to give us the chance of everlasting life , of spending eternity with him .
But he also put in place examples of how we should live our lifes till that day comes – We arent meant to sit on our butts , twiddling our thumbs, nor are we meant to build big lovely churches and then sit on a Sunday patting ourselves on our backs thinking how wonderful we are for our wonderful God .
He came and he got down in the gutter with us all and thats where he wants us – continuing his work on earth . Ministering to those in need , opening our arms and hearts to the down and out .
The story above is about a perfect little church not wanting anything to disrupt or ruin their perfect little world- How Jesus weeped over this . What does it say to the greater community , to those who think Christians sit in there amazing churches while people suffer with their doors closed.
And what does it say about me , what do I do to follow his work , what witness am I and what can I do to make a difference ?
