As I read day 1 of the @YouVersion Plan Authentic Witnessing In Today’s World this caught me heart,
“In Mark 2 Jesus is explaining why He came to Earth. To the surprise of many at that time, it wasn’t so that He could hang out with the spiritually stable or prominent religious leaders. It was so that He could get into the messy business of compassion and serving the down and out. Jesus came to relate to the broken, sick, and lost to lead them to eternity.”
I wrote a post called Messiah’s Misfits👈those verses help my focus on who Christ came for and have been a great reminder that He came to save a wretch like me.
Also in John 8 we hear the account of how the religious people of Jesus’ day treated one particular lady they say was caught in the act of adultery & Jesus’ response, They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” John 8:7 NLT
Now I will let Christ use me, however He wants & knows best, to serve others, not throw stones, but rather, invite them with Love (1st Co. 13 type love) into the fold.
