I just had the most wonderful discussion with Gary. He was sharing how this lady just calls trump a racist. He says, she doesn’t get it… And how that would be like someone calling me a drunk when I don’t drink. Gary, you’re right, let’s discuss that. Offenses, blaming, criticism this is pride circling round and round like no other sin. We can’t see past our face and our mouth fights back. How does it stop? I don’t think anyone gets it, and we Christians are missing Kingdom opportunities left and right.
The most Epic Grace you can give a foolish, ignorant person is to agree with their ignorance. Because if Christ is your Deliverer then you know he delivered you from foolishness and ignorance. You didn’t deliver yourself. Are you not a baby killer, are you not a racist apart from the grace of Almighty God??! Sometimes we can’t even see past our face when we are offended or reviled against. We have to speak out of our mouth while forgetting Christ . How can you be delivered from offense? Get on the offenders level. Agree that yes you would be a homosexual but by the grace of God. You can’t teach them to stop and see and deliver themselves. Christ is the Redeemer, the Deliverer. We have been Justified In Christ.
The surest, truest way Christian is to remember the great apostles of the faith. Remember Jesus? How did He handle offenses? He didn’t say “no I’m not such in such” He knew His Father, He knew Who He was. He went so far as to say Father forgive them, they know not what they do. Not to mention, He was Perfect. We are not. So then what, we look at Paul. A sinner saved by grace alone through faith alone, in Christ alone. He knew it! So he never cried about offenses to him… He agreed yes I am. I’m worse than you think, but by the blood of Jesus. If we as Christians can’t get off of our high horse then how in the world can non-believers?? I don’t care what you have done or haven’t done, it’s not about that! Because you would have but for Grace In Jesus. Baby killing, porn, adultery, lies, pride, boasting, homosexuality…. Think about Christ before you speak. He Delivers, so sinner saved by Grace, get in agreement with the sinner standing before you, spewing what he wants, point Him to Christ. This is Amazing Grace ❤️
1 Timothy 1:14-16 And the grace of our Lord overflowed to me, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. This is a trustworthy saying, worthy of full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the worst. But for this very reason I was shown mercy, so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display His perfect patience as an example to those who would believe in Him for eternal life.…
