CHRISTLIKE - DON´T CONDEMN, SAVE!

We as followers of Jesus are to become like him, yet still many do not present themselves in the likeness of him.

2 Corinthians 5:20
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Many will say they love Jesus but you do not really see love in them towards people, they are cold.
Jesus called us to love one another as he loves us and not to be so harsh to one another.

John 13:34
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.


Many of us believers get misunderstood today simply because we walk in our own ways instead of bringing God´s light, love and hope into the lost world.
Jesus came to the earth to save us not to condemn us!

John 12:47
And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

We can not call ourselves followers of Christ and then go around and judge and condemn people all day long.
If you are so harsh to the lost you will only drive them further away from God and condemnation is not very Christlike.
The world needs to be saved not condemned, leave the judgment to God and walk as Jesus did to wake people up and save them.
Let a sense of compassion burn inside your heart, the love that brought Jesus to die for us.

Instead of taking everything in your own hands and get angry at the lost or even act very unlike Jesus and very hostile towards everyone, give the unsaved to God and pray for them at least as much as you condemn them.

There are so many Christians out there who are cold and you don´t sense much love or warmth coming from them, they do not remind you of how Jesus is. Don´t be one of them!

ALWAYS REMEMBER TO BE A MIRROR OF JESUS TO THE WORLD, THAT WHEN THEY LOOK AT YOU AND THE WAY YOU ARE THEY SEE JESUS IN YOU.
IF YOU ARE A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST YOU NEED TO BECOME LIKE HIM: COMPASSIONATE, GENTLE, PATIENT, KIND, LOVING, HELPING, CARING, RIGHTEOUS, PURE AND ALL THAT HE STANDS FOR.
PRAY A LOT FOR THE LOST PEOPLE, DON`T BE WAY TOO HARSH TO THEM.
