About

I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"ARE YOU COMPASSIONATE?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

ARE YOU COMPASSIONATE?




IF A REALLY DRUNK MAN CAME TO YOUR CHURCH SUNDAY, WHAT WOULD BE THE REACTION OF THE CONGREGATION? THERE WOULD PROBABLY BE TWO DIFFERENT REACTIONS. ONE IS THAT SOME OF THE PEOPLE WOULD BE APPALLED THAT A DRUNK WOULD DARE SHOW UP IN THEIR CHURCH. THE OTHER IS THAT SOME OF THE PEOPLE WOULD WELCOME HIM AND MAKE HIM FEEL LOVED. WHAT WOULD YOUR REACTION BE?




WHAT IF THE MAN GOT BORN AGAIN THAT SUNDAY AND THE NEXT SUNDAY HE SHOWED UP DRUNK AGAIN? NOW, WHAT WOULD THE REACTIONS BE? THE FIRST GROUP WOULD PROBABLY SAY "I TOLD YOU THAT HE WAS NOT REALLY SAVED". HOW COULD THEY KNOW SINCE ONLY GOD KNOWS THE HEART?




I THINK THIS GOES ON IN CHURCHES AROUND THE COUNTRY. I KNOW I HAVE SEEN IT IN MY LIFETIME, THE "HOLIER THAN THOU" AND THE "COMPASSIONATE". THE "HOLIER THAN THOU" SEEMS TO WANT TO TELL THE MAN HOW SINFUL IT IS TO GET DRUNK. DON'T THEY THINK HE KNOWS THAT? WHY DO THEY THINK HE CAME TO CHURCH IN THE FIRST PLACE.....MAYBE TO GET HELP???? DID THEY NOT SIN AT ALL THAT FIRST WEEK AFTER THEY GOT SAVED?


I AM NOT SAYING IT IS A SIN TO HAVE A DRINK ONCE IN A WHILE BECAUSE JESUS EVEN TURNED WATER INTO WINE FOR A WEDDING IN CANA OF GALILEE. HOWEVER, THE BIBLE SAYS IN EPHESIANS 5:18 "And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit."




WE ALL SHOULD BE TRYING TO HELP THE NEW CHRISTIANS BECAUSE SATAN WILL TRY TO TELL THEM THAT THEY ARE NOT REALLY SAVED AND JESUS SAID IN MARK 4:15 "And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts."


YOU MIGHT HAVE HAD IT EASY BUT SOME OF US MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN AS GOOD AS YOU. I STRUGGLED WITH SOME OF THE THINGS I WAS DOING. THANK GOD FOR HIS MERCY AND PATIENCE. I AM ONLY HERE NOW BY HIS GRACE AND I THANK HIM FOR IT.




LET'S ALWAYS LET PEOPLE SEE JESUS IN US. I HAVE HEARD PEOPLE SAY "IF THAT PERSON IS A CHRISTIAN THEN I DON'T WANT TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH JESUS". I WOULD HATE TO THINK I WAS THE PERSON THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT. LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE WITH LOVE AND COMPASSION. HE SAID THAT WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW ABOUT HIM AND HIS LOVE.




GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
