Strong Words

The book titled UnChristian lists reasons why some non-Christians donít like people who profess faith in Jesus Christ. Their major complaints have to do with the way some Christians act toward unbelievers. The unbelievers in the study tended to view Christians as being hypocritical, judgmental, harsh, and unloving toward people not like themselves.

Iím sure you dislike hearing their view of Christians as I do. Sometimes thereís more truth in their perceptions than we wish there was. In 1 John 3, which begins with the words, ďBehold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!Ē (v.1), John introduces a sharp contrast: Believers love righteousness, keep themselves from sin, and love one another; nonbelievers practice sin, hate others, and abide in death.

These are strong words! We are either followers of Jesus Christ or of the devil. We are like Cain or Abel (v.12; Gen. 4:8-15). John says that love for others is what proves we are genuine children of God (3:10,18-19; 4:7-8). We canít continue to practice sin and claim to be followers of Christ. Letís always make sure our words and deeds back up our beliefs.





O help us, Lord, to live our lives
So unsaved people clearly see
Reflections of Your loving heart,
Your kindness, and Your purity. óSper





Following Christ has two requirements:
Believing, and acting like you do.
