The other day, a friend of mine, "un-friended" me on Facebook. It hurt. This friend is dear to me, and I did nothing to warrant his "un-friending." Matter of fact, I love this friend. But, he, like so many people on this planet, became numb by tragedy. The death of a father ended in the loss of a son. He still lives in the flesh, but he's angry at God. I have spent truly a lifetime trying to help this friend. I have been a shoulder for him when his dad died. I have comforted him, and gently answered his questions about faith and life and God. I have counseled him through thoughts of suicide, worthlessness, and severe depression. I have tried to show Him the God that I know personally. I have cried for him. I've been on my knees for him. I have wanted to stuff truth into his heart and mind, because I don't want Him to know the despair that is Hell. Please don't think for a second that I have shoved the gospel down his throat. I don't shove. Christ doesn't shove. He gently loves us and gives us each a choice to believe or go another way.
So many people think that Christians stand in judgement over their lives and they never give Christ a chance to show them the truth about salvation. And I understand why some people get the wrong idea. I have been burned by Christians myself. I have felt the sting of rejection from people that I thought would love me as Christ has loved them. But, don't let humanity stand in between you and a loving relationship with a perfect God. See, I am not perfect. Christians are not perfect. But, Christ was. He wants a relationship with you.
Did you hear that?
It is through a relationship with Jesus Christ that you become God's child. Let Him in. What do you have to lose? You can "un-friend" God, but He will never "un-friend" you.
