From Pete Wilson – “Jesus chose to see people for who they could be rather than who they are in that moment.”
That statement just knocked the breath right out of me. Have I been committed to Jesus for so long that I forget what it’s like to be out there — without Him? Or have I forgotten my early Christian days when I made judgements and statements out of ignorance and arrogance?
I still make judgements out of ignorance and arrogance. I see myself as this open and accepting follower of Christ. I believe in GRACE — fully and wholy. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is a gift from God Eph 2:8
It’s in this grace that I want to accept people. I want to see people who they could be! I would rather see me for who I could be if I’d stop procrastinating and put down the fried chicken.
This world is filled with bad stuff — but I want to believe in the good of my fellow man. I know that we are ALL God’s children and it is His desire that ALL come to know Him as Lord and Savior.
Thanks for making me think Pete.
