Outcasts & Friends

Outcasts & Friends

Many of the people who came to Jesus were those that did not fit the mental model we have of a Christ follower. After all, don’t people have to be shiny and clean, with their act together? Instead, they were outcasts who Jesus called His friends. And you are too. So how you relate to other believers is of critical importance. Division will destroy a body of people quicker than anything else. It can destroy the body of Christ, a fellowship of believers, the witness of believers, and a human soul seeking God. Too many are known more for the grumbling, griping, complaining, murmuring, and divisiveness than for anything else. Nothing cuts the heart of Jesus more than self-centered and divisive behavior. Let’s do something about it.
